THE FAME GAME
hello tvplus, what happened to the auditions for skeem saam? i want to be an actor so badly!
it’s been deathly silent in recent weeks. however, the skeem saam team have now confirmed that no further public auditions will be held. according to show publicist percy vilakazi, all auditions will now happen via official acting agencies. “we didn’t anticipate that people would come in those numbers. the auditions were just too big for us. the police told us to cancel the auditions,” he says. meanwhile, rumours about skeem saam possibly moving to sabc2 since generations returned have been quashed by sabc’s head of pr zandile nkonyeni. “i can confirm that skeem sam is not moving to sabc2. it will remain on sabc1 moving back to its old slot,” she told us. nb! see more on p20.
