Maps Maponyane Cast In SABC Telenovela

Model-turned-actor Masego Maponyane has had quite a meteoric rise in Mzansi's entertainment industry. You could have been forgiven 2 years ago for asking; What exactly does this guy do? What's his claim to fame? Well Maps is on a mission to change that and is currently carving himself a career as a bonafide actor. 

SABC3 has renewed its primetime show, High Rollers, for a second season and in turn expanded it into a telenovela. The show will now be aired on the channel 3 times a week, that is Monday to Wednesday.

Perhaps in an attempt to get some publicity for the show [I always doubt the ratings pull of these celebs] or maybe he was just the best guy who auditioned for the role, lets not take that away from the guy, Maps was cast along with a host of what the producers describe as "a host of South Africa’s best acting talent to look forward to in season 2"

Maponyane will be playing  Thabang, a technological whizz-kid using his talents to rip the casino off.Thabang’s adrenaline hungry girlfriend Bonnie will be played by Khanya Mkangisa.

I have yet to see Maps act so I can not comment on his acting prowess, so I will watch with you guys and see how he holds his own alongside formidable and legendary actors such as Brumilda Van Rensberg, Xolile Shabalala, Fezile Mpela and Terence Bridgett. 

Catch Maps Maponyane as Thabang in the new season of High Rollers starting Monday, 29 June 2015 on SABC3 at 19h30.
