Wiseman Zitha Journey Into Acting
On how started off as an actor, Wiseman Zitha interview with IOL, revealed a lot more on his journey into acting.
“I graduated last year, I studied drama at the Tshwane University of Technology and as soon as I graduated auditions for this show started and I auditioned. However at the time I was in Cape Town because I model full time as well and auditions were in Limpopo so I recorded my audition on my phone then I got a call back and now I play Musa,” he said.
According to him he was not really convinced about the getting the acting because it was a top spot. “I was skeptical but very interested in him because he has to play this hero and I feel like you can relate to him. He has a background that a lot of South African youth can relate to in terms of living with a father that’s an alcoholic and a mother that is the provider. And just like Musa, I paid for my university education on my own,” said Zitha.
Born in Limpopo to Tsonga parents, Zitha said that growing up he was very confused about what career path he wanted to take and attending a science school did not help. It was when he took a gap year after matric that he decided to study drama. The rising star said that although his new role has its own pressures, it has taught him many lessons so far. “Learning to trust myself has been the biggest lesson so far. Every character needs to grow and I was trying to figure out who Musa is, from his mannerisms to the way he walks and it was scary at first but so many people have embraced him I trust what I am doing,” he said.
