Following his death in a tragic car accident introducing the latest family on the block, the Kubekas, many have taken to social media to mourn the loss of one of their favourite Scandal! stars.
After having suffering from memory loss and discovering his newfound love for Dintle, Quinton’s death rocked the nation last night, who hoped Quinton would live happily ever after with Dintle.
Speaking to TshisaLIVE, the star divulged more about his character’s death and what that means to him as a thespian, decades in the industry.
The actor breathed life into the character of a good looking, charming ladies’ man, which has developed a lot over time.
“Having played the character for so long, it was only a matter of time before the journey came to its natural end. I see it as growth.
“I can only hope that the fans are as moved as we were when we performed the storyline. Death is sometimes the beginning of new, greater things. His newfound love for Dintle is probably the biggest heartbreak as a result of his death,” said Brighton.
