Actor Terence Bridgett is the newest addition to the cast of Generations: The Legacy.
The actor who has appeared in several other soapies will start shooting scenes in the popular weekday soap later in October. However, he will start to appear on TV screens from December.
His role in Generations is that of a married family man, Michael who seems to have a lot of secrets.
The soapie’s management welcomed Terence Bridgett into the Generations family through a post on Twitter.

Some of Terence’s past soapies include 7de Laan, Backstage, Isidingo, Binnelanders and a slew of others. He was also a part of the drama series High Rollers which was abruptly canceled on SABC3 earlier this year.
Last month, a statement released through SABC confirmed that media personality Thando Thabethe who joined the cast of the revamped Generations: The Legacy as the free-spirited Nolwazi Buzo will leave the show after three years of portraying the character.
The actress said it was not an easy decision to leave the popular show. However, while she has received nothing but love from the cast and crew, she needed to move on to other things in her career.
Executive Producer of the show, Mfuni Vundla praised Thando as “one of South Africa’s most talented TV actors.” He expressed sadness over Thando’s departure from the soapie but wished her well in her other endeavours.
“Thando Thabethe is one of South Africa’s most talented TV actors. She has a great future to look forward to,” said Mfundi.
Back in July, Mfundi had to defend the integrity of the show as it faced serious backlash from viewers. Calls to scrap it from TV intensified over allegations that it was showing soft porn.
Consequently, the creator came out guns blazing to defend the series which has been on TV since the 90s. He urged South Africans to stop blowing the matter out of proportion.
