The Ferguson’s have been at the end of much anger from viewers of their produced television shows as of late and not for what one would consider to be the right reasons.
Just by taking a look at a recent article we did about 10 South African Actor’s Shocking TV Exits, you can see that quite a few actors fall as causalities at Ferguson Films.
The Ferguson’s recently did an Instagram Live video with Themba Ndaba (Brutus). They were asked the question “why do they keep firing people?”
Connie Ferguson answered and said “guys this is soap. Characters come and go. That is how soap operates.”
She added that “it’s for story, sometimes to introduce another story.”
She ended by saying that this isn’t something that is excusive to The Queen.
Shona Ferguson said “I think that’s what people don’t know. The reality of what we do is, you are going to see new people in and out. It’s the nature of storytelling.”
He ended off by saying that after a year of watching a show “people get to a point where they say they are tired of these people, what else can you give us. Now if I am going to give you something different and something new. Somebody has to go.”
So that is the answer as to why they keep on firing actors. It is to make room for somebody new.
