Patrick Seleka is a South African actor best known for his starring role as Katlego 'Kat' Petersen in the SABC1 drama series Skeem Saam.
Patrick loves writing poems and entertaining people. He is from a small township called Seshego in Limpopo.
When Patrick was young he wanted to be a policeman like his father. After finishing school he studied IT then enrolled with the School of Arts in Pretoria.
Highlights of his life include "the time I started art in junior school, my teacher encouraged me to enter competitions and I can't remember losing. During high school I took an interest in theatre and met a group called C.S.P. I then began to build my career; I've performed at the State and Market Theatre."
Patrick's mother is his inspiration, "she takes no nonsense and will never sleep if her children are not okay or comfortable, she is a fighter and does everything 110%. I may not have expensive clothes and gadgets but my mother gives me something that's far better than all those things; it's her love."
In his leisure time Patrick writes poems and watches cartoons. His favourite music is Hip Hop, Soul, R&B and House. Tshepo Tshola's 'Holokile' is his most memorable song as it reminds him of his father, who passed away in 1999.
His favourite movie is The Matrix; he would love to do an exciting movie like that because "dodging bullets and stuff keeps people on the edge of their seats." Al Pacino and Angelina Jolie are Patrick's favourite movie stars.
Patrick is terrified of ghosts and enjoys novels that take you on an adventure. His favourite radio station is Yfm because they play the best house music. His favourite TV show is Whose Line Is It Anyway?.
Patrick's wish for the future is to see himself in a lead role in one of South Africa's big soapies. His only regret in life is not taking photos at his matric dance "I thought I looked bad but apparently I looked good."
