The award-winning actress Kgomotso Christopher has been cast in the telenovela to portray Dineo Price, the second wife of Sebastian Price who has built an upmarket investment empire and is getting ready to retire and a family member must take his position, but who will it be?
Ahead of the telenovela’s debut, Kgomotso responded to fans’ questions about her new role as to what they can expect. The actress let know that her character will neither be a villain or a victim in Legacy. Dineo’s character is one that will go out of her way to protect her family and the company is always protected.
Describing her character in four words, she says Dineo is loyal, opulent, maternal and calm. Her character is very different from her previous role on Scandal!, she describes her as being the opposite “cool, calm, collected”.
Her fans are eagerly awaiting Kgomotso being back on their screens as some have missed her dearly following her exit from e.tv’s Scandal! After four years on being on the popular e.tv soapie, Kgomotso bid farewell to her dearly loved character Yvonne Langa
Her departure was confirmed in a statement by the actress and the show.
“As my last day in YV’s shoes approaches, I can’t help but reminisce about the thrill ride it’s been to navigate this gem of a character, gifted to me by the dedicated and talented Scandal! writers. Scandal! will always hold a special place in my heart because through the efforts, talents, and love of the cast and crew, I grew so much as an artist and experienced so many career milestones, including my SAFTA Best Actress win and recent Best Supporting Actress nomination,” she said in a statement.
