Getting to know Kagiso Rathebe (Amo)

Kagiso plays Amo, a photographer who started working as a freelancer for NFH. The star has been part of Scandal! for two years now. He is sadly bidding the show goodbye for now.

“My journey on this show has been incredible, truly one of the best on-set experiences I've had in my career so far. It's sad to see it end for the time-being, but I'm definitely more than satisfied with the characters growth. I think it would have been a disservice to him and the story if we didn't explore his dark side.”
