How similar are you to Gadaffi?

Well, like him, I too enjoy the good life. And also he can be sweet – underneath all that badness is a good guy who means well. So, people should not be fooled by the image he portrays.

Speaking of image, how do you make sure that people make a differentiation between you and your characters, especially the bad ones?

When playing a character I tap into that side of myself, I take myself to that situation and imagine how I would react. I try to stay true to who I am. So when I am just Vuyo, people should understand that I am not acting!

How do you take care of your physical image?

It is important to take care of yourself. I eat a balanced diet and also visit the gym at least every day.

You had quite a heavy scene when your character Gadaffi hit his wife What are your thoughts on domestic violence?

I think that people who abuse others have a broken background (be it that they were mistreated as children, abused or bullied). To solve the problem, you must then fix the root. I also think that educating people about such issues reduces the chances of it growing.

How do you juggle work and your personal life?

Having a seven-month-old son makes it difficult. But, I try to work and plan ahead, and this often gives me more time to be with him.

What can we expect from you this new year?

I want to nail my character Gadaffi to the tee. I also have a lot I want to achieve business wise, and am looking forward to expanding and networking in the industry.
