Muvhango Top Actress Collapses After Getting Fired
Muvhango’s renowned actress Elsie Rasalanavho is said to have collapsed after she was fired from the telenovela.
Following the abrupt dismissal of Muvhango’s top actors, Macdonald Ndou who plays KK and Sydney Ramakuwela who plays Mulalo Mukwevho, it has also emerged that Elsie Rasalanvho who was popularly known for her role of Vho-Mukondeleli was also axed from the show.
Contrary to claims that she voluntarily left Muvhango, it now appears she did not leave the show on amicable terms. Her character died in May.
According to a source who spoke to the Daily Sun, the actress who had been part of Muvhango for 25 years was not happy when the production company refused to renew her contract. She reportedly collapsed after she was fired without prior notice or warning.
The source revealed that Elsie Rasalanavho had to be admitted at a hospital after she collapsed.
“She is not happy that she is leaving. She wasn’t expecting it.
“When she was told her contract would not be renewed, she collapsed and had to be admitted to hospital.
“It was such a shock that after 25 years of being on the show, she was just dropped.
She was saying that she didn’t know what she did to the production team that they would do something so painful to her. She gave it her all and they treated her badly.”
Elsie reportedly wanted to leave the telenovela immediately at the beginning of the new season but did not do so after she was told they would make a good deal out of her exit from the show.
“She was told they would make a big deal out of her exit. In fact, a press release was supposed to be released after her last episode but it did not happen.That was when most of us realised something was wrong,” said the source.
Muvhango actors’ careers are said to be hanging in the balance as the show is allegedly looking for new young faces.
“The production company wants more young people on the show, hence they are letting go of some actors.”
