Zizipho Buti on Generations The Legacy
Playing the role of Tracy, Zizipho revealed that she is grateful for the opportunity to show South Africans problems that sex workers face and the need to be treated just like any other occupation. Despite her first “disliking” the role at first, she doesn’t regret taking it.
It’s been such a pleasure getting to know Tracy and telling her story. She has definitely shifted my mindset. Let me tell you. The first time my agent called me to tell me this is the role they want me to play I went quiet on him. I judged her and her story. But now I’m so glad I said yes. I’m learning every time which is something I don’t take lightly. I appreciate everyone who makes an effort to watch – even if it’s on YouTube. All the messages, comments on my stories, and feedback. Thank you, it means a lot to me.
Onset, hooked in sex work, Tracy is not ashamed of her occupation, she treats it with discrete as the job demands, she hooks up with politicians and businessmen. She shows loyalty to Palesa as she continues to visit her behind bars.
Zizipho comments on Acting
“Acting is not about being someone different. It’s finding the similarity in what is apparently different, then finding myself in there.” _ Meryl Streep (I read this quote almost every time I engage with the script). Today I received a voice note from my former lecturer from UCT which was “feedback”. I can’t explain what it means to me when people appreciate my work and effort.
