Israel became a household name when he played the role of a vicious criminal in Yizo Yizo and Presley first rose to fame when he played the role of a hijacker in the Oscar-winning movie Tsotsi. But they’re not anything like the characters they played in the past. They recently went to Alexandra township to donate food parcels, masks and sanitisers to the victims of a fire.
Taking to Twitter, Israel wrote “Charity begins at home”.
