Efforts to contact Soso for comment were unsuccessful, as her phone went unanswered. However, Costas Gavriel, executive producer of Generations, confirmed that Soso departed from the show amicably. “She landed a lead role in another production. She will return when she’s finished,” Gavriel said. He also confirmed that Soso’s agent approached the show’s producers in December 2022 to inquire if she could be written out temporarily.

“We did not write her off. Producers and writers penned her character out to enable her to pursue a lead role in another production,” he explained.
