Hennie had fun filming this drag storyline and says, “I’ve played a few female roles in my career during my children’s theatre years. And in 2009, with Chris Vorster (Ryno in 7de Laan from 2000-2015) in the theatre piece Vrydag Is Skeidag, I played the character of Chris’s mistress.” So transforming into a woman was easy, although a little more professionally done this time around. “Before, I’d just put on my own make-up and wig. Now, after the 7de Laan make-up artists and wardrobe team were done, I was gobsmacked. I looked like someone else. And when I walked out on set, I either gave a whole bunch of my colleagues a big fright or had them in stitches,” Hennie says.
