Yesterday was another exciting episode of Podcast And Chill with Mac G where he had Queen Mzansi star, Loyiso Macdonald, as his celebrity guest, and tons were revealed.

The lady’s man opened about not knowing his biological father and not having the ability to talk any vernacular languages. The actor also delved deep into the art of acting.

I’m not a spokesperson for Universities and Tertiary institutions but when it involves art – you don’t need a degree to become an actor. the foremost famous actors on the earth have a certificate at the best. However, the studying element remains there because you continue to do workshops. And again, in other countries, there’s more access when it involves that thing.

The Queen actor highlighted that albeit one doesn’t need a degree to become an excellent actor, they still need some sort of education.

You have to seem at what makes great acting. If it’s not a degree and not a diploma then what’s it? It’s simple, you only need certain skills. you would like to find out to use your body, you would like to find out to use your voice, you would like to find out to research text because acting first and foremost is an intellectual thing. It starts within the mind, it’s not art. the primary thing you are doing as an actor is that you simply devour a script. you’ve got to analyze text. you’ve got to glean information from this piece of paper that an author has written. then the acting comes then.

Mac G asked Loyiso what his thoughts were on acting during the social media era.
“In the time that I even have been performing on TV, the entire social media game has changed tons of things. Where I still remember the primary time I used to be asked what percentage of social media followers I had at an audition. It threw me off because it’s got nothing to try to to with acting.

This frustrates the audience you have already got because they need to ascertain the simplest. we would like to ascertain people that make us engaged with what it’s that they’re doing onscreen. Hence that’s an actor’s job.

Kagiso from The Queen says that he has issues with new faces.
“I haven’t any issues with new faces coming through. Otherwise, none folks wouldn’t be sitting here today. and therefore the industry is usually trying to find new faces. It’s just that we are at a stage where people’s interest within the industry has peaked such a lot but the avenues in terms of showing that talent is still an equivalent. Except maybe within the last two years where Netflix has are available .”

He also spoke about moving to Joburg and staying at Carlton Centre, not having a backup plan, landing a task on The Queen, actors being fired from The Queen, harassment on set, and more.
