Fans of Uzalo’s talented actor Thulane Shange will be releasing a huge sigh of relief now that the actor is confirmed to return to the telenovela to shake things up even more.
Many who did not know the actor before his short and unexpected break from the show will be thrilled to know more about people’s favourite villain.
Thulane Shange was a hit on the show, portraying a villain – one of the Khanyile brothers. His role got killed on the show after the production company revealed that their characters had run its course.
However, in an unexpected twist, Uzalo has brought back Thulane on the show – still portraying the vengeful and bloodthirsty Khanyile brother who is baying for Nkunzebomvu Mhlongo’s blood.
Put aside his much-loved role on Uzalo. Thulane Shange has played so many iconic roles on Mzansi screens. From his debut role as Lwazi on Mzansi Magic’s “iSthunzi” to his latest and controversial persona – on “Ikhaya”. He indeed has always found himself a way to keep Mzansi talking.
] The 27-year-old actor has a reserved personality and has little about his life known – from both social media and interviews.
So private is his life that so many speculations and rumours have been spread about his name.
These rumours were sparked by his controversial, homosexual character on Ikhaya series where he perfectly played the role of Lindani Mbatha’s secret lover.
Unfortunately, because of his role, Thulane Shange – together with his colleague Sphamandla were subjected to homophobic slurs on social media.
But is he really a member of the LGBT community?
Well, at the height of the social media homophobic slurs, the actor did not – and has never entertained anyone who has labelled him or questioned him about the relationship between his role on “Ikhaya” and real life.
He has never come out to the public to declare whether he is gay or not.
