ctor, model and TV pre­sen­ter, Chris Jaftha is charis­matic, charm­ing and in­cred­i­bly com­fort­able in front of the cam­era – and the more we see of him, the bet­ter! Af­ter grad­u­at­ing from Joburg’s Na­tional School of the Arts, the 32 year old did vol­un­teer work for the non-profit or­gan­i­sa­tion Youth for Christ. For two and a half years, he trav­elled through Africa, Europe and the US rais­ing money for HIV/AIDS or­phan­ages through theatre, and in 2005, he moved to LA to study at the Stella Adler Academy of Act­ing. On his re­turn to SA in 2007, he bagged the lead in SA’S long­est run­ning mu­si­cal African Foot­print, and he’s been in de­mand ever since, with roles in Dirty Danc­ing, Foot­loose, Mamma Mia! and Aladdin. He’s also siz­zled on screen in Isidingo, High Rollers and Roer Jou Voete, and as a Top Billing pre­sen­ter. So don’t miss the chance to see Chris on stage right now, as he reprises his role as Bernardo in West Side Story at the Man­dela Theatre in Joburg from 24 Jan­uary 2017. Hot? You bet!
