The family of Shaleen Surtie Richards has this morning sadly confirmed the news of her passing.
The 66 year old actress born on 7 May 1955 was well-known and loved for her role as Nenna aka Ester Willemse on the long-running soapie eGoli.
It was however playing Fiela Komoetie in the 1988 film adaptation of the Dalene Mathee Afrikaans novel Fiela se Kind that the Legendary Actress first rose to fame.

 

A veteran of a long list of Films, TV Series and Stage Productions and receiving numerous awards along the the way, Shaleen Surtie Richards was most recently cast in the role of the amusingly annoying but sweet grandmother in the Quanita Adams film SWIRL about 'Coloured women and their hair'.
 
 
 
As can be seen in tributes on social media, Shaleen Surtie Richards has certainly been an inspiration to many of the generation of actors who followed in her footsteps.
 
 
Shaleen was clearly adored by many across different generations and the South African Entertainment Landscape will forever continue to be influenced by the sheer passion she has put into ensuring the credibility of each and every role she has ever played.
Our sincerest condolences to the family, friends, colleagues and the fans of this wonderful star.

Well... I can't remember how many times over the past few months I've told people "No, Nommer 37 is not your 'run-of-the-mill' Cape Flats gangster movie".
To be honest... Until now that was based on the information I have been given by people involved in different aspects of the production of the movie, but now I have actually seen the entire film.
After attending the official South African premiere on Monday 21 May I can with one hundred percent certainty say...
Nommer 37 is die nomme vannie flêt... It gannie oo’ nommeskap en gêngsterism soes ôs it kennie...

Hare verskrik

Shirmoney Rhoda
Almal wat op die Kaapse Vlakte groot geword het sal verstaan wat ek bedoel as ek sê: “Nee kyk hie vi hare verskrik.” Die uitdrukking “hare verskrik” word vir enige een gebruik wat óf te veel met hul hare speel óf wie dink hul hare maak hulle mooi. Dit kan ook net wees dat die persoon wie sê “jy’s hare verskrik” net plein jaloers of naar is. Maar dat gladde hare ‘n big deal in veral Kaapstad is, is geen geheim nie. Dis ‘n feit soos die bestaan van ‘n GHD. Ek kan hiervan met ondervinding getuig. My ondervinding mag dalk verskil van die volgende persoon s’n, maar ek is seker daar sal hier en daar ooreenkomste wees.
