Drama

When did you re­alise that act­ing was for you? When I was seven. I was watch­ing ac­tion movie Bad Boys II (2003), think­ing to my­self, “This is what I want to do. A black man can im­pact so­ci­ety,” look­ing at [lead star] Will Smith. So what was your first act­ing ex­pe­ri­ence? As the class clown in pri­mary school, I sup­pose [Laughs]. I did drama in high school and played the role of Chad in our High School Mu­si­cal pro­duc­tion at Table­view High in Cape Town in 2009. What’s been your best role so far? Ev­ery role I’ve played has al­lowed me to learn about my­self, but play­ing Andile in lo­cal film Rise (2004) made me think about so­ci­etal con­di­tion­ing on young chil­dren. And how do your char­ac­ters on Skeem Saam and Igazi dif­fer? They’re very dif­fer­ent but both are sin­cere in­di­vid­u­als who try to be hon­est and true to them­selves, al­though it’s played out dif­fer­ently. Phila is more of a re­al­ist and a loner, while Jama goes out of his way to be good and is more of a peo­ple-pleaser. What did par­tic­i­pat­ing on re­al­ity tal­ent show Top Ac­tor (2014-cur­rent) in 2014 teach you? How vast the industry is and dif­fer­ent act­ing styles and ap­proaches. Be­sides act­ing, what other tal­ents do you have? Mar­tial arts. I’m also work­ing on a per­sonal pro­ject that will be re­vealed soon. NB! See more on p18.
