Connie Ferguson and Rapulana Seiphemo are returning to Generations.

The stalled soapie’s producer, Friedrich Stark, told City Press yesterday the pair are rejoining the show.

Stark was responding to rumours that have been swirling around the TV industry, which the actors themselves have denied.

“I’m tired of insiders spreading rumours. But I’m not going to reveal what their characters are going to be. I would not reveal that information,” said Stark.

Ferguson played Karabo Moroka, and Seiphemo played the character of Tau Mogale.

Two industry insiders, speaking on condition of anonymity, told City Press Ferguson and Seiphemo were coming back as the new CEOs of the advertising company.

In the show, the company was owned by Sibusiso Dlomo, who was played by Menzi Ngubane.

Ngubane was one of the 16 actors sacked in August. Seiphemo told City Press yesterday: “You are not the first one to ask me this. It is not true, I’m not rejoining Generations – it’s just rumours.”

But Stark stuck to his guns.

The two insiders said that Generations creator Mfundi Vundla was bringing Seiphemo and Ferguson back because when they left the soapie several years ago, “they were still loved by the viewers”.

One added: “Bringing them back will [bring] smiles again to Generations’ loyal viewers.”

A third source told City Press that another actor who had been spotted auditioning for the show’s relaunch on December 1 was Wright Ngubeni, who used to play the role of Jonathan.

“It is still not clear whether he would come back as Jonathan, but it seems he was one of the producers’ favourites when he auditioned for this role,” said the source.

“I prefer not to comment on this,” said Stark.

All he would say was that the producers were looking not at new faces, but “talent”. “Everybody should be excited. It’s going to be a great show,” Stark added.

Among those who are unlikely to be excited are the 16 sacked actors, who are set to appear before the Commission for Conciliation, Mediation and Arbitration for the first time tomorrow.
