Ben’s a ten!
Isidingo baddie Benjamin le Roux is returning to The Deep to cause more trouble.
Dear tvplus. Will Benjamin ever come back to Isidingo? I miss him being evil! – LYNN, PLUMSTEAD
While Isidingo (1998- current) has kept very quiet about Benjamin le Roux’s return, there is good news. Actor Arno Marais, who left the soapie in 2015 to film kykNET’s (*144) drama Die Boekklub (2015- current) and briefly popped up earlier this year on 7de Laan (2000- current) as acting Hillside Times editor Nico, has been trumpeting his Isidingo return on social media. Arno broke the news on his Facebook page, posting, “Going back home, Isidingo has been a love in my life! Booyaa!!” Isidingo confirmed that Benjamin will be back on our screens in 2017 but couldn’t say when or whether he’s back fulltime or as a call actor. NB! See more on p19.
Arno Marais is reprising his role as bad-boy Benjamin.
