Lunga “Luchy” – as he would like to be addressed – was born in Katlehong. He holds a diploma in Professional Acting from City Varsity.
Before scoring a brief cameo on Mzansi Magic series, Ring of Lies Season 2, he was a theatre nerd. He is best known as Andile on The River, the gay son of mining magnate Lindiwe Dlamini (played by Sindi Dlathu).
The actor that inspired me as a young actor: Growing up I was inspired by Robert Whitehead (Barker Haines on Isidingo) and Motlatsi Mafatshe (Sechaba Matabane on Isidingo)
The album/record that moves me: Busa by Dj Euphonik – This song literally moves me to tears. The message makes me hold on to God more and reassures me that greater things are coming.
My all-time favourite local TV drama series: Yizo Yizo; it was one of the best local series’, with the richest content and the best cast.
My sanctuary: Home is my Sanctuary, because there’s no place like it.
The one quality people will most likely remember me by: Being kind and thoughtful. I always try to be kind to other people.
Words I live by: “What’s yours is yours, and if it has to happen, it will“.
