Jaques De Silva has been announced as one of the latest cast members to join SABC 2’s 7de Laan, taking on the role of recent divorcee and businessman, Denzil Jonker.
Jaques De Silva debuted on SABC 2’s long-running drama series, 7de Laan, in early February 2021, and has already made an impact in the season 22 storyline. In a statement shared on the SABC 2 website on Thursday, 18 February 2021, the channel elaborated on Jaques’ character, Denzil Jonker, who has already created a reputation for himself amongst the residents of Hillside.
His assertiveness and businessman-like demeanour are not taken kindly, as his good intentions are misunderstood and result in him gaining rivals shortly after his arrival. The character is said to have an air about him that commands respect, which viewers will empathise with as the storyline unfolds.
Jaques stated, “I’m really happy to be here. As an actor, we’re always looking to play, to enjoy ourselves, and for me, that happens when I’m challenged by a character, style or format and 7de Laan is offering me the best kind of challenges to sink my teeth into.”
