He expressed gratitude for the positive feedback from viewers and fans, saying: “I get told all the time that people watch the show because of my character.

“Although I don’t fully believe it, I still enjoy hearing it. Who doesn’t like positive feedback, right?”

Despite the challenges, Cedric described the film and television industry as bittersweet.

“It’s a very cold industry and can be very toxic. However, if you are adaptable and smart, you can milk it as much as possible and fast track your success,” he said.

His drive is fuelled by his role as a father and a storyteller.

“Remembering that I have an amazing son who looks up to me and needs to be guided also fuels this drive. Taking care of my loved ones is an added boost.

“Most importantly, it’s the fact that I get to tell stories for the viewers that entertain, inform, and educate. People’s lives are changed through storytelling, and I’m astonishingly amazed to be part of such artistry,” he said.
