Isidingo Talent Search winner upstages cast

Isidingo Talent Search winner Sisa Hewana has been voted the most popular actor on Isidingo.

The soapie's been running a fan favourite vote on their Facebook page and Sisa's upstaged the trained actors in the poll. He has 954 likes as we speak.

Sisa was working as a financial adviser when he a won the role of S'Khumbuzo "Ace" Nzimade in early 2010 and had no acting experience when he auditioned.


Sisa accepting the role.

Does his popularity mean that viewers prefer someone they've chosen to be on the show? Do untrained actors act better than trained ones? Is it Sisa himself who's so popular or his character?
 
The poll asks: "Who's your favourite character?" but in the blurb above it says: "Click 'like' on the picture of your favorite Actor, " so it's obviously a combo of both.

As you'll see when you browse the poll it doesn't include everyone and Benji, Cherel and Barker are included twice. #EpicFail I've used their highest voted picture as the gauge.

Notable exclusions are Vusi Kunene as Jefferson Sibeko and Linda Sokhulu as Nikiwe. Would they take top spot if they were included?

Here's a link to it: Isidingo actors in 'like' war (my title, not theirs, heh)

Hey yOnGaMa - here it is ...The best way to clean a flat screen TV.

It's trippy that you're asking for it because I looked at my TV this morning - literally! - and marvelled at how brilliant the stuff is - I used it weeks ago and the screen's still shiny.
