But regardless of her apathy to acting she ended up giving it a try.
Her first role was spontaneous
When she went with her to the set of Soul City, the director asked her if she could do a part for them. And, she didn’t hesitate, she just did it, and they liked it, she said. Afterwards, Ivy landed the part on Soul City, playing the grandmother of a patient, and the rest was history.
Every production in Soul City chases after Ivy because of her talent. She joined Muvhango in 1997 and now serves as Edward Mukwevho’s advisor. “I left Muvhango to join Isidingo and never had a stable role, but I never stopped acting.” I then became a member of the casts of City Ses’La and Zabalaza. People are unaware that this is not my first appearance on Generations.
