Audio recordings of Zola Msizi about his wishes at work in the Marvel films
Marking his debut on the TV screens this year, Vula Vala’s Zola Msizi lifted the lid on how he had wished to at least one day act alongside late American actor Chadwick Boseman who died in August.
The budding actor trapped with the TshisaPOD in October and spoke out about how he wanted to at least one day act in Marvel movies.
“I’m an enormous nerd … the maximum amount because it doesn’t appear to be it and that I have always dreamed of being within the Marvel universe. Chadwick Boseman’s death hit harder than I assumed it might because I even have always dreamt of working with him.
“Seeing his work, seeing how he was ready to do all he did while battling carcinoma for four years, it had been incredible, it had been inspiring.”
Zola added that he was sad he was unable to figure with Chadwick as he told numerous black stories, which was something he also was inspired to try to do.
“I also want to offer back to the universe, I would like to play different roles which are something I’m not want to … I would like to be within the shoes of people. If this world had such a lot of sympathy, maybe if we had such a lot of love, we’d be thus far ahead.
“For me, it’s like for you having the ability to play people, you’ve got to possess empathy enough to concentrate .”
Speaking on having empathy, Zola dished out the 411 on his role, Lefa Kwena, who’s a shirt lifter hiding his identity from his family and friends.
Zola explained that the role took him out of his temperature.
“It has been a rollercoaster but now, I might say that I even have enjoyed my role. it’s taken me out of my temperature. It’s something that I enjoy doing because that’s where you learn and grow.
“I’ve done tons with this character I never thought I might as my entrance into the industry, but it had been needed in order that I could skills far I needed to travel as an actor … basically to point out how determined I’m about my career.”
Zola explained that since getting into the role he’s had to affect nasty homophobic comments, adding that his mom has been his source of comfort.
“My rock ‘n appear this was my mom because after every emotional scene, every hurtful thing that I had to process to evoke a particular emotion out of me, cause I’m drawing from an emotional place.”
The actor said he learned to be more open-minded through his character and kissing a person for the primary time made him realize how society needed to vary its perspective on same-sex relationships.
“You know the sad thing is that homophobia is simply like racism, it’s taught. you do not just awaken being homophobic, you do not just awaken being racist. you’ve got to be taught and there are numerous elements that inherit play with things, like toxic masculinity.
“Being in a neighborhood where people feed you all this fear, feed you all this hate and you begin being a sponge and taking it to beat. Because I remember, before I had gay friends, I used to be taught as a child that the sole sort of love is between a person and a lady … that’s it.”
