Uzalo actor Khaya Dladla has opened up about his difficulties and having to portray GC, a township gay man who owns a saloon in the show.
The 29-year-old Uzalo actor told Daily Sun about his difficulties with his role as GC on Uzalo. He said it was challenging to portray GC. He is a township gay who owns a saloon and is a prima donna.
“I don’t relate because I’m nothing like him. I had to do research to find other GCs out there so I could play the part. I had to look deep into the role because I’m nothing like him.” – Khaya Dladla told the publication.
Dladla said playing GC has opened many doors for him. “I mean, GC is Uzaloand Uzalo is GC but the greatest thing about all this are the lives I have touched.
“I’m grateful to be the one who tells this story because not many characters fully portray gays in the township who still are in the closet. Hopefully, this will break down barriers.”
