SABC 1 Popular soap, Generation's The Legacy has been joined by an incredible talented actress who is set to shake things up.

This soap has been receiving some criticism from the viewers because of their storyline which is not thrilling at all. This led to it in bringing Vuyo Dabula, who plays the role of Kumkani aka Gadaffi Phakade, who shook things up.

Earlier on this year, it lost some incredible and renowned actors which includes Vusi Kunene who joined eTV new telenovela, House of Zwide. His exit also left a huge gap on the show as many viewers started to change channels and no longer watch Generation's The Legacy.

Now, Morula Pictures, which produces this soap,has brought in a very talented actress to join the show.

Daily sun has reported that the Durban born actress, Thandeka Shangase has joined the soap.

Thandeka Shangase can barelycontain her excitement as she joins Generations: The Legacy.

The 29-year-old actress comes from Umlazi, south of Durban, will make her debut appearance on the Generation's The Legacy next week.

The ecstatic Thandeka said she believes that her new role will take her career to greater heights.

"I was filled with excitement when my agent shared the news with me at the beginning of August. I was more excited when I started shooting on 10 August.

“To me, this is a fantastic opportunity. Despite being told that it is a small role, for me, there is no small role as every opportunity counts,” said Thandeka.

She thought to herself, this was the biggest role she’s ever had to play.

When asked about her role, she said: “Even though I’m not allowed to divulge the details, all I can say is that it’s a very emotional role."

"They told me I will appear in the second week of September, in one or two episodes for now. If my character grows, then you will be seeing more of me on your screens,” said Thandeka.

Giving a brief background about her acting career, Thandeka said she was once one of the cast members of a TV show called Next of Next Week, and last year she did her first commercial advert with Absa.

Durban University of Technology also released a statement congratulating her on the new journey as she has risen the flag of the University high.
