Directors keep telling me ‘I’m not black enough’ South African actor, Cedric Fourie says

Friday, 6 October 2017

South African actor, Cedric Fourie is tired and frustrated with movie directors telling him he’s not black enough to play certain black roles in movies.

The Soweto-born actor in a recent interview with Times Live said, ‘I got to a point where I almost felt like I was wasting my time when auditioning for a black male role. How could I be told that I wasn’t black enough just because I am few shades lighter than what Europeans have tagged as black?’

Fourie, who plays the role of a manipulative businessman in SABC drama Skeem Saam says being able to play a different roles is important to him, ‘I want to sell myself as [a] multi-dimensional actor. One who is able to play anything from a drag queen to businessman’ he said.
