Award-winning drama series could be looking for you!

If you have acting talent, is looking for you.

The free-to-air channel needs two young actors to join the cast of the award-winning drama series Umlilo.

There is one catch though – you need to have a strong resemblance to Hamilton Dlamini and Gcina Mkhize, who play Mnqobi and Cebisile Simelane.

The actors must be between 18 and 30 and both should be fluent in Zulu. Acting MD for Channels Division Marlon Davids says: “ is committed to giving opportunities and finding new talent in South Africa. Umlilo, currently in its third season, has had a successful run on the channel and created conversations across Mzansi.”

The young actors will be used in flashback scenes as the series explores what happened when Mnqobi married his first wife, and his business partner died in a horrific fire.

The drama won the SAFTA award for Best drama in 2015 and 2016.
