Gospel star now an actor! I may end up on Generations, says Dr Rebecca.

She has 35 albums, 29 years as a gospel artist, and now Dr Rebecca Malope can add actress to her resume. The 47 year old star just wrapped up her first movie playing an alcoholic Xhosa woman.

"I absolutely loved playing my character Thembi. She was vibrant and so different from me, I guess that's what acting is about hey," she said.

Rebecca said the role came through the production company she works with for her show Its Gospel Time.

"I initially thought it was a joke. When it was serious I jumped for the opportunity."

She jokes that after seeing this maybe people will love her acting and consider her for roles. “I may end up acting on Generations the legacy. You never know,” she jokes.
