Brian Ogola Replaces Lenana Kariba in Selina. What Do You Think About the Casting Change?
Maisha Magic East’s hit show, Selina once more makes a casting change as Brian Ogola replaces Lenana Kariba in the role of Reagan Mackenzie.
Reagan is the oldest son of the Mackenzie family, a charming and fashionable man who is also quite reserved. He is under the control of his wife Zoe, but is cunning and would not think twice about swindling his family for money. Deceased actor Kone Nouhoum previously played the role and this is the second time it will be changing hands.
As the show continues its successful streak, the casting changes may be a setback as viewers now need to identify with a new actor. Although the character remains the same, all actors have a different interpretation while playing the role and viewers may find the transition difficult. This is not the only time the show has changed its cast. The role of Zoe was originally played by Janet Kirina and is now played by Mwalimu Mbeki. The other character is Nelson’s girlfriend, Collette, previously played by Riziki Ambrose was given to Joyce Maina.
