Daniella is in jail and still ly­ing to pro­tect some­one. Week­days SABC3 (*193) 19:00

There’s a new face in Hori­zon Deep and she’s bring­ing drama! The trou­ble kicks off on Wed­nes­day 26 Oc­to­ber when lawyer Angie (Shan­non Esra) hears that her 22year- old niece Daniella (Shamilla Miller) has been ar­rested for try­ing to smug­gle drugs. And while Angie tries to help Dani, the model-turned­crim­i­nal re­fuses the of­fer. “She does not want her aunt’s help be­cause she thinks that she can fix this by her­self, so she rudely turns down Angie’s of­fer,” says 28-year- old Shamilla, who was on re­al­ity tal­ent show Top Ac­tor Africa (2015- cur­rent).


Per­sis­tent Angie sees this as a way to re- con­nect with her es­tranged fam­ily, so she vis­its Daniella in prison again on Fri­day 28 Oc­to­ber. “Dani was caught car­ry­ing drugs through the air­port,” ex­plains Shamilla, “but she didn’t even know what she was trans­port­ing. She was sim­ply de­liv­er­ing a par­cel that some­body had given her.” After much per­sua­sion, Daniella agrees to Angie’s aide on Tues­day 1 Novem­ber but with a con­di­tion: she won’t re­veal who gave her the par­cel. “Angie has con­nec­tions who can help her niece, but Dani won’t rat out who’s landed her in this po­si­tion. Let’s just say that the per­son is a bit too close to home for Angie…” hints Shamilla. With nowhere to turn, Angie reaches out to the one per­son who knows The Deep’s drug trade: gang­ster Bra Ge­orgie Zamdela (Dar­ling­ton Michaels). On Wed­nes­day 2 Novem­ber, they make a deal and Shamilla ex­plains that “Dani’s obliv­i­ous to what is go­ing on when Ge­orgie vis­its the prison and tries to bribe her with gifts on Thurs­day 3 Novem­ber”. But there’s an­other prob­lem for Angie: TV jour­nal­ist Calvin (Mau­rice Paige) has been tail­ing Ge­orgie and he’s do­ing some dig­ging into Ge­orgie’s jail vis­its.


Angie knows that she isn’t get­ting the whole truth. On Fri­day 4 Novem­ber, Dani re­veals that she’s do­ing a TV in­ter­view with Calvin, who vis­ited her while snoop­ing be­hind Ge­orgie. Angie tries to talk her out of it but Shamilla says that “Dani is from the wrong side of the tracks and a lot of pri­vate fam­ily drama could come out, which would be bad for her and Angie”. As luck would have it, Calvin’s car is stolen just be­fore the in­ter­view on Tues­day 8 Novem­ber and he can­cels on Dani. “But there’s some­thing about Dani’s story that bugs Angie. Things aren’t adding up,” teases Shamilla. Like the fact that the drug dealer Dani told Ge­orgie doesn’t ex­ist…
