South African entertainment industry is growing and opening up, meaning there are more artists in the space than ever before.
As much as we’d love to believe there’s space for everyone, it’s not always the case. More artists fight for same roles and TV gigs. This is one of the many reasons why we nolonger see some of our faves on screen anymore. Some leave voluntarily to pursue other passions and are living their best lives away from showbiz.
Check out this list of some of popular TV faces who disappeared from our local screens.
