Kenley Swart

Kenley Swart attended Bellville North Primary School and matriculated from DF Malan High School. She went on to study at Stellenbosch University from which she graduated in 2014 with her Bachelor’s degree in Theatre Studies and Performance.

In 2015 and 2016 she completed Higher and Advanced Certificates in Film Acting at Act Cape Town (ACT). At the same time, she started working as a part-time drama coach at The Stage Performing Arts Studio.

Her studies at ACT lead to some wonderful opportunities, and she performed in the short film “Unspoken” by Nicola Hanekom, as well as the play “Girls Just Wanna Have Fun” at the Woordfees in 2017.

She also got to practise her hand at some behind-the-scenes work, assisting as production coordinator and second AD on the feature film “Cut-Out Girls” directed by Hanekom.

After concluding her studies at ACT she proceeded to become a lecturer in Stage 39’s full-time performing arts program.

In 2019 Kenley landed the role of Lara in her first feature film, “Vergeet My Nie”.

Lara Hattingh (21)

Lara is the life of the party! She makes the men turn their heads with her looks and keen sense of style and fashion.

She avoids the mundane, the boring and the predictable, as she has her best friend Mardaleen who makes up for it.

Lara serves as a mentor figure for Mardaleen. She is, however, not oblivious to heartache and pain. She’s loyal and the type that stays around when times get tough.
