Dawn Thandeka King Quits Acting : ” I Am Tired” POPULAR actress Dawn Thandeka King says she’s tired and needs to rest. So she’s taken a break from her acting job. The former Uzalo actress said she’s suffering from depression but has learned to live with it.
She spoke to MzansiNdaba after she posted a video on Instagram where she revealed she’s emotionally drained. The actress said she had to deal with a lot lately, which put a strain on her.
“I had to relocate to Joburg for a new job. That affected my entire family because I had to move with them. Relocating put so much strain on me and my family because I also had to look for new schools for my kids,” said Dawn.
Losing her father last month also impacted her mental health. “I lost my dad, and that alone depressed me. But I’ve learned to live with depression and I feel better now,” said Dawn.
“I know the pain of having to deal with mental health pain, anxiety and depression.” She was in hospital last week. She said she’s on medication which only helps her to rest. She’d taken a break from Mzansi Magic’s DiepCity, where she plays Thandiwe, but as soon as she got better she’d go back to work.
“I’m tired. I need time to rest. I don’t know when I’ll go back to work. I’ll only do so when I’m better,” she said. Through all this, she said she’s getting strong support from her family.
