The dubbing of foreign language telenovelas has become such a phenomenon on South African TV that it's becoming an art form in itself.

It's attracting local stars to the microphone and creating a situation whereby actors are able to become voiceover cast as a profession.

We've been poring over the voices in eExtra's Afrikaans dub of Elif and it's fascinating to see how many well-knowns are behind the characters.

There's also an emergence of voices who are becoming recurring cast members on shows with notable repertoires e.g. Capetonian actress Micka Alexander who voices on Elif, Die Vreemdeling and Doodsondes.
