In 'e'Lollipop', Ndebele's character, Tsepo, gave his life to save his friend Jannie, played by Knox. In real life, the roles were reversed. Three years ago, Knox, together with Andre Pieterse, 'e'Lollipop's writer and producer, went on a nationwide search to track down his childhood friend and co-star. They found Ndebele in a derelict flat in Hillbrow, missing teeth and weighing a gaunt 48kg. Bitter and angry, Ndebele had descended into a life of crime and drug addiction.
