SOPHIE Ndaba is promising to bounce back.
The longest serving Generations actress has said although her fans won’t be seeing her on the soapie anymore, she has other plans.
Ndaba, who played the role of Queen Moroka, was on the show from the first time it aired until the last show on Tuesday night.
“This would have been a celebration if it had been planned, but it’s a different matter because it has ended suddenly.
“But it’s not a funeral and those who love me and have followed me over the years must know that when God closes one door, he opens another.
“Sophie will be back. I’ve just parked my car for a while and life will still go on without Generations,” she said.
Ndaba said she has been approached by fans. “The most amazing thing for me is when I try and hide myself by going to malls like Hyde Park Corner hoping that no one will recognise me and a white gogo comes up to me and says she loves me.”
Ndaba said she wanted to set the record straight about reports saying the axed actors were begging to be allowed to return to the soapie — they were misleading.
She said: “All we wanted was to fix the wrongs, but you can’t force yourself on people who don’t want you anymore.”
Ndaba said she would start producing her own show soon. “One thing I can promise viewers is that we’ll be back,” she added.
Generations has been replaced by Skeem Saam in the 8pm slot on SABC 1 until December 1, when the new Generations will begin.
