The youngest of four siblings, Shaughn Reyneke began his stage career in Grade 1 when he played a ‘thirsty boy’.
This led to a variety of roles in Sunday school plays like Alice in Wonderland, Humpty Dumpty and Robin Hood.
He has spent three and a half years at the Children’s Theatre, which he describes as a ‘wow’ experience. He has learnt to sing, dance, and mime as well as how to be a professional clown, but his biggest break has been Soul Buddyz.
He gets to play the spoilt rich kid who is chauffeur-driven to all school functions and has an abundant supply of money.
“It’s so lekker,” he says.
He aspires to writing scripts for children’s television but for now enjoys funnyman Martin Lawrence and high-kicking Jackie Chan, who are among his Hollywood heroes.
