Local actor, singer and dancer Aubrey Poo, best known for his role as pastor Gabriel Mothusi in the SABC3 soapie Isidingo has left the show.
Aubrey Poo made his final appearance on Isidingo on Thursday night. He was shot dead by his accomplice Nina Zamdela, played by Khabonina Qubeka, making his role come to an end.
Speaking to DRUM about his Isidingo exit, Aubrey said his departure from Isidingo was amicable and he will miss playing the pastor’s dodgy antics.
“I will miss the freedom I was given to be creative and do all the madness that I wanted with the character. It’s encouraging for an actor to be trusted with a role and be given the opportunity to explore and push yourself, he added,” – the actor told DRUM.
Aubrey said as much as he loved playing Gabriel Mothusi his time on Isidingo was done and there was nothing more left for his character to do.
“Moruti waTstotsi shook up Horizon Deep, my job is done. And now I’m onto the next one. The next time you see me, I will be revealing something big,” he said.
Isidingo’s Executive Producer Pumla Hopa told Drum the crew and cast will miss Aubrey’s energy and fluidity and his character.
“Gabriel was a real opportunistic chameleon and slotted into all tiers of our world causing havoc and playing people at their own games. We will forever be grateful to the exceptionally talented and professional Aubrey,” she said.
