Interviewer: You are considered one of the best actors in the country how do you make sure you perfect your character?
Sdumo Mtshali: You can never be perfect at acting; I always strive for excellence. I still hate watching myself act because I am my worst critic. This is only because I want to
improve what I do.
Interviewer: Achieving your goals is never easy (watching Tempy Pushas proves just how much the challenge is). How do you overcome the challenges of trying to reach your goals?
Sdumo Mtshali: First, you have to accept the challenge, then tackle it as an experience. That is what I do.
Interviewer: What advice would you give to those who wish to follow in your footsteps when it comes to fitness and health?
Sdumo Mtshali: There is no right or wrong image. I do have to look a certain way for my character. For example, for Sbu on Isibaya I had to train at the gym and build muscle because Sbu is a tough guy. For other characters I play, that may not be necessary.
Interviewer: When you are not making sure you nail every acting scene you take part in, tell us what you do for fun?
Sdumo Mtshali: I love what I do, so I am always working. In my spare time, I watch different movies to learn from other actors. I also hang out with other actors, including my co-stars in Tempy Pushas, Pallance Dladla and Akhumzi Jezile.
Interviewer: Rumor has it that you are headed back to Isibaya. Can you confirm this?
Sdumo Mtshali: Yes, indeed. I will be back on Isibaya, but at the moment we are still finalising my contract.
