Well, it seems as if Mzansi’s second most-watched soapie Generations The Legacy will be stopping its production for at least two weeks after several actors tested positive to Covid-19.
It has been established that the positive cases have disrupted production for two weeks. Rumour has it that four of the cast members became seriously ill and one was hospitalised.
“Every week, the cast and crew members test positive for the coronavirus. Unfortunately, a few weeks ago more than half of the cast members tested positive,” the source said.
A close friend to one of the actors said: “It was bad. They had been overworking and shooting scenes back to back, just in case another level five [national lockdown] happened.” The source added that they have since fully recovered.
“We are so happy they recovered fully. The country doesn’t need another public figure’s tragedy. We have been through so much with the pandemic and just this dark cloud hanging over the country.”
A cast member who did not want to be named said he thought he was going to lose his life.
“I’m grateful to be alive. I thought I was going to die. Covid is not a joke,” he said.
Seasoned actress and outspoken TV reality star Manaka Ranaka, who plays Lucy in the soapie, confirmed she had tested positive. Ranaka said, however, that she has since recovered and is fine, but was just scared for her infant.
Asked where she thinks she might have contracted the virus, the mother of three said: “It could have been anywhere; you never ever know.”
Kay Sibiya – who plays the role of Siyanda, Jack Mabaso’s son – said he was not affected this time around, but he tested positive around June 15. He said he had all the support he needed to recover.
“I feel safe because they respect protocols and the fact that we get tested every day is important,” he said.
