Actor Nyaniso Dzedze has become the latest celebrity to join the family of SABC 3 drama series High Rollers.
The former Ashes to Ashes actor has scored a new role on the show and will make his debut on December 13.
Subsequently, producers confirmed the news that Nyaniso has joined the High Rollers cast.
According to High Rollers’ publicist Selai Ralarala, “He started shooting with High Rollers in October. Luther Duma is Busi Duma’s younger brother. He has a very interesting past. A past that will make him a perfect fit as the new head of security for King’s Casino.”
There was a touch of fate there somewhere as Selai revealed that Nyaniso nearly missed the role. Nevertheless, he got it and the crew couldn’t be happier.
“We held weeks of auditions and Nyaniso’s talent was undeniable. He almost missed auditions because of his busy schedule but he finally came in and dazzled the producers. The cast and crew have been very welcoming of Nyaniso. His bubbly and playful nature is a breath of fresh air. He is loads of fun on set,” she added.
Actor Nyaniso Dzedze had been overseas where he was studying to be a spiral practitioner. Subsequently, he returned to South Africa recently to start filming with the series. In fact, he shared a picture of himself on set of the show this week. Thus, he can’t wait for fans to meet him.
Nyaniso is quite excited about his character who he described as: “A bit of a geek. He loves puzzles and is the last born of two”. He added that he had “never loved being challenged by a character this way (before)”
Meanwhile, other celebrities who have joined the show in recent months include Boity Thulo; Thapelo Mokena and former Generations actress Sophie Ndaba.
