With an infectious laugh, South African actor Alfred Ntombela, also known as Shorty in Leon Schuster’s candid genre films chats to Azania about his journey in the film industry.
Ntombela says that his journey all started when Leon Schuster was looking for a child to feature in his films. Ntombela adds that initially, he was working for a children’s TV show when his manager told him about the vacancy.
He says that the problem with having a ‘real’ child feature in the film, is that children take a long time to learn the script.
