    • Dennis: (when asked what made him think he could handle playing Mandela in Goodbye Bafana) I was asked to do it by director Billie August. He sent me this wonderful letter but I almost turned him down because I was so afraid. It's a very emotional issue with me. I know Malcolm X and Dr. Martin Luther King came before him, but this man, the sacrifices he made. He spent 27 years in prison! But I was challenged. I thought: If you do not do this, you will regret for the rest of your life. And if it did not work, well, at least you gave it your best shot. I have no idea how this movie will turn it. It was the toughest thing I have ever done in my life.
