Joining the cast of King Shaka is “a dream come true,” says Warren Masemola.
Give him silk stockings, high heels, and a feather boa, and he will wear them all with ease. He will transform into one of the most ferociously violent criminals you have ever seen when you cover him in jail overalls and horrifying tattoos. He’d be perfect for the role of the sentimental groom who breaks down into tears in a music video.
And he’ll be up to the task if you need someone with a strong voice to say, “Give that man a Bells,” in your whisky commercial. For an actor who views the world as a stage and can change into any scenario with the ease of a chameleon, nothing is impossible.
Warren Masemola is eager to demonstrate even more of his depth in the upcoming Showtime series King Shaka.
It’s “a dream come true” for him to be a member of the King Shaka worldwide ensemble on Showtime, he wrote in a post.
He described how he fell in love with acting in a 2017 interview with Drum.
Early on, it was clear that he would work in show business. I’ve always been outgoing and unique, he claimed. “You know, I often tried on the clothes my oldest sister wore at home when she served as an altar server at church.
“It was simply lovely, a red dress-like ensemble with a crop top-like top. I used to go around the home blowing incense like I was in a church.
He claimed that his mum “is full of jokes” and that watching comedies on television helped him develop his sense of humor.
At the time, he told Drum, “I recorded every episode of Martin Lawrence’s program, In Living Color, and The Jamie Foxx Show and I would impersonate all the different characters.
Warren enjoys comedy, but he takes acting seriously and demands that others do the same.
“While you never hear somebody declare, “I want to become a dentist today, I feel like pulling out seven teeth,” you do hear people in other professions declare, “I want to be an actress, I believe I’ve got it. People must respect what we accomplish, he emphasized.
It is not a pastime.
What makes him unique is his love of languages and his aptitude for accent impersonation. It’s my distinguishing feature. Languages captivate me, therefore I have a heart as well as an ear for accents. Together with my preparedness, I believe that really distinguishes me. I work hard to get ready.
He continues to give his role his best even after five years have passed.
