Local channel e.tv has confirmed that Kgomotso Christopher will be leaving its weekday soapie, Scandal!.
Kgomotso, played the role of YV on the soapie, has been a part of the Scandal! cast for the past four years, and after portraying an unforgettable character she will be embracing a new venture in her career which she is currently keeping under wraps.
"As my last day in YV's shoes approaches, I can't help but reminisce about the thrill ride it's been to navigate this gem of a character, gifted to me by the dedicated and talented Scandal! writers. Scandal! will always hold a special place in my heart because through the efforts, talents, and love of the cast and crew, I grew so much as an artist and experienced so many career milestones, including my SAFTA Best Actress win and recent Best Supporting Actress nomination," she said in a statement.
According to the channel Kgomotso is not leaving indefinitely. She will be temporarily exiting the show. Her last on-air appearance in the current storyline will be on 2 June 2020.
"I've never worked a day on Scandal! because I did what I loved, and my artist-child was allowed to play freely; all that's left to say is, thank you to the Scandal! and e.tv family...until our paths cross again," she shared.
Ziyanda Mngomezulu who is the e.tv head of Local Productions said, "We have been fortunate to have Kgomotso on our screens. Her professionalism, infectious personality, and enthusiastic spirit has been a great asset to our channel. We will miss having Kgomotso as a part of the eFamily, and we wish her all the best in her life's next chapter. It is certainly never goodbye, but rather see you later."
