7de laan Casting News

25/06/2020 Jack Devnarain, Isidingo’s Rajesh Kumar, made his debut appearance on 7de Laan tonight as Dr Patel. At least Dr Patel won’t turn into another Gloria or Evelina or Thandeka. It’s not known if it’s a long-term role or just story-related. 15.06.2020 Markus Haywood (Willem Spies) is, by the looks of things, leaving 7de Laan.

7de Laan has shut down production due to COVID-19

A crew member on 7de Laan has unfortunately contracted the COVID-19 virus, which means the entire set – cast and crew – had to be shut down to be infected and those who came into contact with the member of the crew has to also self-isolate. It’s not been stated how many new un-aired episodes

Errol saves Mariaan’s life on 7de Laan

I watched Errol’s return episode on Viu a day after the episode aired so knew Errol was the one to save Mariaan’s life by the time I turned my computer on. But it was still so nice to see Errol Pieterse again, back home from visiting Johannesburg after moving away. I wonder if Errol had

WTF! 7De Laan! Is Mariaan dead?

So last night on 7de Laan Mariaan’s life flashed before her and our eyes all episode long and then at the end she saw the light, which means death in the soapies. She struggled so hard to get out of the boot of Andre’s car just like she struggled to become the new Mariaan. And

7De Laan Actors Back at Work post-Lockdown

By the looks of things, our favourites have been back at work since early May, creating new episodes of 7de Laan for us viewers. I have to say, it was comforting having episodes of 7de Laan to distract from the dreariness which was especially the start and level 4 of lockdown. Quinne Brown (Connie van

Mariaan and Andre and Gender-Based Violence on 7de Laan

Mariaan and Andre’s romance started out very sweetly. Both seemed to need and deserve their easy relationship after Connie cheated on Andre and years of emotional abuse that Mariaan seemed to think she deserved from Chris Welman. But when you look more closely at it, this relationship was bound to be difficult once the first

7de Laan on VIU vs 7 de Laan on YouTube

Two weeks ago, it might’ve been 1 June 2020, new episodes of 7de Laan were nowhere to be found on YouTube. No prior announcement. No nothing. 7de Laan, or rather SABC, I guess, ghosted us on YouTube. It was only by doing a Twitter search that someone mentioned that 7de Laan was no longer being

My favourite Isidingo Storylines

There’s just over a month – Isidingo is ending on 12 March 2020 – to go before the final episode of Isidingo airs on SABC 3, so it got me thinking of my favourite storylines over the years. When Isidingo started, there was the big murder of the Voster family, orchestrated by Cherel de Villiers.

Isidingo to end on 12 March 2020

A while ago we’ve heard that cash-strapped SABC decided to cancel Isidingo after 21 years on the air. Isidingo’s Twitter account announced that they’ve already shot the last episodes which will air on 12 March 2020. Hopefully, Isidingo’s producers pitch the show to DSTV or Netflix and it can continue in some way. SABC didn’t

Does Emile look like Kristin or what? #7delaan? 😉

So I was wondering who Emile looked like on 7De Laan the other day after Connie dressed him in drag. (Please don’t get me started on Connie who just needs to receive treatment – off-screen – in a clinic for a month or six!) He reminded me of Kristin!. Remember her? Part of the reason
