Tik Toker, Paballo Kgware joined Uzalo as Rich Makoti. She has appeared in a cameo role in the popular SABC1 soapie Uzalo, portraying the alter ego rich makoti, who is well-known on social media. She has been trying to be in the acting industry.
Speaking to Daily Sun, Paballo said she was pleased when she was approached to be a part of the show.
“Acting is an industry that I have been trying to get into. So when I got the call from producers of the show, I was overjoyed because that meant I am starting to be seen by shows that I dream of being a part of,” she said.
The 22-year-old AFDA graduate, who made her maiden appearance on November 24, believes the part marked the start of a successful career.
How did Paballo started her career as an Actress?
After graduating, she was bored of staying at home doing nothing. She then created a Tik Tok account. Little did she know that she was creating an open door to pursue career in acting. Her advice is that people must not take social media lightly.
Paballo, who has over 800,000 TikTok followers, believes in the power of social media. She stated that she would not have been spotted by major productions if it weren’t for the platform.
“TikTok is a good tool that can make you. After graduating, I found myself bored with nothing to do. Then I created an account on TikTok, not Knowing that I was creating my own big break, hence I advise people to not take social media lightly.”
“We all have to start somewhere, and we can’t land major roles as our first acting job. That is why I did not turn away the role because even the smallest one, in any TV show, is important. Hopefully this will open more doors for me,” she said.
“I sometimes go through a creative block. But once you have an idea of how you want your content to look like, it becomes easier. It also becomes easier with time because some of the people I imitate are in our lives every day.”
Although filming films appears to be simple, Paballo told the People’s Paper that it took a lot of ingenuity to make them.
