Bad news for fans of the gang from Horizon Deep. Gerard Rudolf, who plays the popular the role of Hendrik Lategan made his final appearance on SABC 3’s daily soapie Isidingo last on 10 June 2019 when fans of Isidingo were left surprised when things took an unexpected turn for Hendrik, when he suffered a brain aneurysm leaving us to bid him good-bye in an emotional farewell.
“I am extremely grateful for my time on the show and for my wonderful co-actors – especially the Lategan family,” Gerard says. “Elma, Lee, Deandre and Michelle, you were an absolute pleasure to work with.”
The Isidingo team is sad to see Rudolf go. In a statement, the production says “To Gerard Rudolf thank you for sharing your craft and impeccable talent with the Isidingo family and fans. Your presence on and off screen will be sorely missed.”
However, with his extensive work on both the big screen and the small screen, we have a feeling we’re going to be seeing more of Gerard sooner rather than later. Good luck on your new journey, Gerard.
