How was it to work with Nico / Sandra / Pam / Paul / Diaan and Corine?

They are all professionals and therefore felt more like a vacation. I take my hat off to all of them – as in literally. It’s just that thing with Nico’s breath …

What was a highlight during the filming?

Probably chasing in a Maserati through the streets of Johannesburg and flying over the vineyards in a helicopter. Oh, and of course rushing into the bathroom while Anel was in the bath!

Why should people go and see Semi-sweet ?

Because that’s the finest and funniest film ever made in this country. And Louw Venter is in it – love that guy’s movies!
