He is somebody who never made any fuss about anything. Whatever we wanted him to do he would do it. He was an absolute stalwart.

“It was important that when there was a new actor that was being introduced, that we have some scene with bra Eddie to find his feet with somebody who becomes like a father to him.

“He is a very quiet man, a man of few words. He was like the character he played, Eddie Khumalo. He will be sadly sadly missed.”
