DRAG RACE

TV Plus (South Africa) - - 7DE LAAN -

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.
