“A point of controversy, I mean, not for you, but for certain viewers that might raise an eyebrow or two … you’ve cast Neo Matsunyane in the second season,” he asked.

Connie responded by saying she is not in charge of casting actors, she further applauded her erstwhile for being a good actor, which landed him the role.

“First of all, I’m not the casting director. Some decisions are made independently. With that said, Neo is a brilliant actor, he’s a brilliant performer and he suited the role perfectly, so why not cast Neo and why is there a point of controversy?”

The actress is blatantly unbothered by the noise from Neo’s role.
