Who believes that his humility brought him to the finals as well as being Voted the most popular actor in season 2 of the pan African reality TV series, BET’s Top Actor Africa.
Two auditions on the same day, he skipped one & headed to the BET auditions despite being discouraged that the group auditioning were not looking for someone like him (speak of walking the road less traveled). Audition done, he gets the news the same day, he has been shortlisted. His reaction? calm but excited!
Catch a glimpse of Alex’s moments in Top Actor South Africa:
Not bringing the title home has not stopped him from continuing to grow his strides; He has been blessed enough to get more gigs than ever! He just wrapped up shooting a German movie titled Brothers that is based on a true story and set to be released in March 2017. He is still on the set of NTV’s Pendo series that airs on Wednesdays at 7:30 p.m and is looking forward to be in a Hollywood movie soon. Blessings on Blessings! 🙂
