Tim Theron is a South African actor, producer and composer best known for his starring role as Steven Mitchell in the kykNET musical youth drama series Sterlopers.

Tim studied B.Com Communication in Potchefstroom at what is now known as the North West University's Pukke Campus. This degree included courses on Film and TV production, Advertising, Corporate Communication, etc.

While at the PUK, Tim immersed himself in the vibrant arts culture of the university. He wrote, acted and directed several student productions, competed in several drama competitions, and also became a core member of one of the universities travelling performing arts companies, performing across the country.

After university Tim decided to merge his artistic flair with the corporate world, and started working in the magazine industry.

It wasn't long though till the stage called and he became part of the Afrikaans improvisational comedy group Lagnes. As the group became more successful, it was necessary for Tim to step up and start managing the group, which, through lots of hard work and dedication by all the members, eventually led to a long-term sponsorship from the ATKV, a TV series on kykNET (2011), and sold out performances at arts festivals like Aardklop, KKNK, Citrus Festival, Jacaranda National Arts Festival, Woordpoort Festival etc.

In 2011 Tim decided to focus more on his individual career. He was lucky enough to and a role in the hit Afrikaans romantic comedy Semi-Soet, as well as the Afrikaans drama Vloeksteen.

Tim also flexed his writing muscles, and along with script writer Etienne Fourie, wrote the screenplay for the Afrikaans feature film Klein Karoo, which he also starred in, alongside Donnalee Roberts and Hyie Berg. Tim is also part of the producer team for Klein Karoo.

In 2011 Tim also directed and starred in two local productions of the The Boer en die Engelse Soldaat and Jutro.

Tim is also an experienced MC, having done major events like the ATKV Nationale Serenade Competition.
