‘Yellow Bones Get The Jobs,’ Actress Sibulele Gcilitshana! Despite being one of the seasoned actresses in the country but she admits it’ not always easy.
Sibulile says she has been turned down on roles because of her complexion. “Over the last few years many actresses have experienced rejection supposedly because they are two shades darker. Then you find out that someone lighter in complexion has been cast instead. It’s become difficult to get some roles of late,” she said.
“It’s even worse if you are teetering towards your 40s age-wise and you’re a [size] 38 plus. It’s not flattering. My industry can be … I don’t know how to describe it, brutal, perhaps.”
The 38 year old star says despite all the ups and downs of the industry, she wouldn’t want to do anything else.
