You've heard the news about it
, you've seen the trailers and now it's time to get to grips with who's who on M-Net's new novela Legacy before its premiere this Monday, 21 September at 19h00.
Who are these people?!
This from Jan du Plessis, Director of M-Net Channels:
“Imagine the Machiavellian mega-rich characters living dysfunctional lives in the award-winning HBO series Succession in a fresh, distinctly South African context.
"Add a daily dose of The Bold and The Beautiful, colour the concoction with pure escapism in the topical and aspirational style of the best Brazilian telenovelas, and you have Legacy in a nutshell.”
The pricey Price family
Played by Deon Lotz
The silver foxed patriarch of the family and CEO of upmarket investment empire Legacy PTY Ltd.
He's gearing up to hand his empire over to its successor. Who will it be?
Played by Kgomotso Christopher
Sebastian's beautiful yet tragic second wife with a heart of gold beneath all the Gucci. She's smart as a whip and heads up her own division in the company.
Played by Michelle Botes
Sebastian’s formidable ex-wife, a former lawyer who is still very much part of the family business and the family itself, unable to stomach Sebastian's new wife or her son SJ.
Sebastian Price Jnr (SJ)
Played by Anton David Jeftha
Dineo and Sebastian's charming prodigal son who returns home to celebrate his father's retirement only to be faced with a legacy battle and an unexpected romance.
Played by Neil McCarthy
Sebastian's younger brother. He's spent his entire life in his older brother's shadow and is reaping the benefits of Sebastian's accomplishments.
Being able to enjoy a lovely lifestyle he didn't earn himself, it's easy for Gordon to be the heart and glue of the Price family.
Played by Mary-anne Barlow
The villain that everybody loves to hate, she is Sebastian's eldest daughter on the hunt for her crown as CEO of Legacy Investments.
Played by Reandi Grey
The middle sister and the rock to everyone in the family, the super organised one that the Price family relies on to make things happen.
Played by Jay Antsey
Fun-loving, care-free Lexi is the complete opposite of her two older siblings and was barely a toddler when her parents divorced.
She's always willing to take her mother's side in any family disagreements and able to get away with almost anything.
Legacy PTY Ltd Insiders
Played by Siyabonga Thwala
An ambitious board member and the head honcho at Legacy Media and L24 news, with an eye on the coveted CEO position.
Played by Leeanda Reddy
The sharp, witty and tough Legacy Investments board chairperson, she plays a tough game in the boardroom and is pivotal in the CEO race.
Played by Don Mlangeni Nawa
The longest serving employee of the company, who was there when the doors first opened and knows some of the deepest and darkest secrets of the Price family and Legacy Investments.
The poor Potgieters
Played by Dawid Minnaar
The patriarch of the Potgieter family and a recovering alcoholic who bears the scars of the Border War, which drove him to the bottle.
His ego is bruised, his future looks bleak and, having lost his job as a technician at an energy company, he couldn't ensure optimum care for his wife after she was admitted to a public hospital with terminal breast cancer.
He's the father of the siblings entwined with the Prices.
Played by Sean-Marco Vorster
The sexy but dangerous policeman turned limo driver, whose special skills and love for one of the Price sisters, places him in a nebulous position.
Played by Trix Vivier
A beautiful and idealistic youngster who is "woke" and jobless. She finds a job and a love interest at Legacy Investments due to her brother Stefan's personal ties to Felicity.
Legacy airs on M-Net from Mondays to Thursdays at 19h00. The result: shows that used to air at 19h00 on these days move to 19h30 from 21 September.
