The cast of the new SABC 1 comedy series, uBettina Wethu, has given viewers insight into the interesting mix of characters inspired by those from Ugly Betty.
SABC 1 took to Twitter on Thursday, 8 April 2021, to detail the characters of the newly launched comedy, uBettina Wethu. The locally produced comedy is the South African adaptation of the hit American show, Ugly Betty.
The post shared saw lead actress, Farieda Metsileng, fronting the video and detailing each of the other lead cast members. In the video, she confirmed that the character of Reggie, played by Alex Sono, is not fashioned around the original character of Justin Suarez, a role assumed by Mark Indelicato.
In the original series, Suarez was a gay character whose coming-of-age story was documented as he came to accept his orientation. This is a narrative that mirrored Indelicato’s own life story. In the post shared, Metsileng described Reggie as “a typical little brother.”
