NYANISO DZEDZE: I WANTED TO QUIT' The former Generations actor Nyaniso Dzedze, whose character Dr Dhlomo was abusive towards his wife Sne (played by former Uzalo actress Nombulello Mhlongo) in Durban Gen said playing the character was his real-life experience as his father abused his mother growing up.

Dzedze revealed on his Instagram account he wanted to quit the role and called his agent crying:

I read the scenes and I realised that this was pretty much a reflection of what my mother went through with my dad. My dad was the Dr Dhlomo of my mom's life, said Dzedze.

It was so difficult for me to face that part of my hurt, part of my own story that I hadn't really told to myself.

FANS REACT TO DR DHLOMO CHARACTER Xolelwauniversaliden:

Thank you for sharing this we all wanna be actors but not willing to take what it takes to be an actor especially the great one enkosi tata . THIS FOR me serving.

saneli_maphathakahle:

You did really good on the role , your Art is always amazing . So sorry for those triggers of the past trauma, I guess it happened for you to learn that you can never be that man. I hope it all passes with time.

Marinky80:

Jongaaaa, I loved and hated you at the same time. Your voice and the way osithetha ngayo Isixhosa. Master Class. Sorry it triggered past emotions.

Mpumelelo_sonkophe:

Man that role you played really touched me so glad you played it so well even though it must have been also hard for you.
