About the Show

Top Actor Africa (known as Top Actor SA in the first season) is a South African reality competition series produced by Urban Brew Studios in partnership with Samad Davis, in which up-and-coming actors compete in weekly challenges to win a career-boosting prize package and the title of "Top Actor Africa".

BET handpicked 12 actors in the country to battle it out on camera in front of big industry names from Hollywood and South Africa. At stake? The chance to win the title "Top Actor Africa" and a prize package that includes R100,000 and magement representation.

The contestants have to show guts and determination to get through a series of themed challenges as the judges test their acting skills in key acting disciplines from Romance to Horror, Comedy, Soap, Action, Theatre and more.

Living under one roof, there is drama in the house and on the screen as the contestants compete against each other in grueling acting challenges, all while facing the grim prospect of elimination every week.

The executive producer of the series is Samad Davis, with series producer Camilla Andersen. The series director was Justin Pavlova-Hawkes.

This was the first original production to air on BET Africa when the channel launched on 2 April, 2015.
