Actress, Katlego Danke will be making her television comeback Tuesday, 1 November 2016. Besides Lotto its been two years of not seeing her on our soapie scenes. But that is about to change as we will see her face more often now.

Katlego has landed herself a new explosive role on Isidingo. She was cast a couple of months ago as the calculating and conniving new character in Horizon Deep Khothala Mokoena.

“It’s not my big acting comeback, because within acting we do different things that people don’t get to see. I suppose as far as TV is concerned it’s my acting comeback, because people last saw me on Generations and this is the next big thing that people will see me doing,” Danke points out.

“But as an actor I’ve been acting since I left Generations. It’s just that it has been on different mediums. I was doing film work. So as far as TV is concerned, this is the first time I’m coming back on TV.”

Katlego has been working closely with Shona Ferguson, who play her character’s on-screen husband Tyson Mokoena.

“It was the first time working with Shona. He is just an awesome, wonderful and professional guy to work with. He is quite generous in his work, which is a wonderful quality you can have as an actor because then other actors want to work with you,” Danke shares.

She also says that the new role shes playing is very different from her role as Dineo Mashaba on Generations.

“Khothala is a go-getter, wears the pants, no-nonsense and straight talker. She is a very strict businesswoman. It’s nice to play a woman who is not only that strong and goes after everything she wants, but at the same time you see her gentleness and softness in her when she is a mother and wife,” Danke teases about the role she is playing on Isidingo.
