‘I lost a brother’
Veteran actor, Lilian Dube says she lost a brother. The 72-year-old was hospitalised on the 29th of December until his passing.
Dube says Phillips introduced her to the acting industry. She says in 1984 they both opened a casting agency and put people on television. Dube says she is lost for words.
“This legend, Sam Phillips, I first met him in the 80’s when we were shooting a film. Later he went to stay in America. In 1995, when I went for my honeymoon, I visited him when he was in LA. He took me to Detroit, Chigaco, Las Vegas. He even took me to the rural areas of Lesotho when I lost my brother. We did many things together. He’s more than a blood brother.”
