Jay Anstey, best known for her role as sexy, carefree and edgy rebel Charlie Holmes on the SABC3 soap  Isidingo has been replaced on the show.

Insiders confirm that castings for her character, Charlie, have been going on – unbeknownst to the star. Sources say Jay, who took a break from filming earlier this year, was under the impression that she was still a ‘call actor’ – meaning that whenever her character was needed, she would be contacted.

This, however, is not the case and Jay has been given the boot, her character now being played by someone else. And Isidingo didn’t even tell her about the decision. “Jay heard from a friend that she was being replaced on the show. She’s in shock,” an insider told us.

There seems to be confusion at the soapie itself. When phoning the SABC for comment, we were told that there was no spokesperson for Isidingo. Later, a representative from TV company, Endemol said that a press release was given out weeks ago. Then the representative said that a press release was still being worked on and when ‘my other deadlines are done I’ll be able to help you.’

This news comes after much speculation that the soapie is in financial trouble and is preparing to write some major stars out of the story line.

The 23-year-old Jay was also unavailable for comment.
