Johannesburg – Actor Darlington Michaels is still a real G- And he says he will remain so until he dies!
The man who became famous for playing the role of Papa G on Isidingo, says that he has no plans to retire, even after a recent stroke affected his acting.
Darlington has often spoken about the stroke that ultimately saw him leave his most famous role, but in an interview with Move recently, he has once again shown his fighting spirit by saying he will not retire before the grave.
“Real actors don’t retire. People who talk about retirement aren’t serious actors. Real actors retire when they die,” Darlington says.
Still, Darlington admits that he does not feel the same excitement he once felt for acting.
“Over the years, the excitement has worn off but I still love what I do. Now I run on love, experience and talent, ” he tells the magazine.
And that sounds like just enough to last him till the end.
