! Crazy but true ... this news just in moments ago from the set of Generations:
Generations, South Africa’s number one daily drama series, is saddened to accept the resignation from the series of Connie Ferguson who portrays the character of Karabo.
"It is with the fondest memories that I think back to Episode 1 of Generations, 16 years ago, in which Connie first featured as Karabo Moroka," says Mfundi Vundla, Executive Producer of Generations.
"Connie is a leading lady in the true sense of the word. We will remember her for her professionalism, dedication and loyalty - she is an icon that will be sorely missed by her loyal followers as well as the Generations family.”
According to Connie Ferguson the past 16 years with Generations have been an amazing and humbling experience. “I have received so much love from fans locally and abroad. After 16 years with the show though, I do feel the time has come for me to go out into the world and see what else is out there for me. I feel like a teenager who is just about to leave home for the first time, both excited and nervous.
"A big thank you to Mfundi, Friedrich and Elsje, the executive producer and producers of Generations respectively, for giving me the opportunity to be a part of history in South African TV entertainment, and my colleagues for the love and support they have shown me over the years. I wish them all many more years of Generations," says Connie.
Connie will not be doing any interviews until her official departure from the show in August 2010. The character of Karabo will be on our screens until October this year.
