SABC is holding auditions for its reality show called The Final Cut and is looking for two new faces to fill the shoes of two new characters to brace the screens in one of SABC’s prominent dramas.

The Final Cut is SABC 3’s very own reality show that takes the viewer through 13 episodes of melodramatic acting challenges and competitive angst in the search for two new faces to grace beloved dramas across SABC platforms.

This competitive driven reality show is on the search for new raw talent with one ultimate goal: they have the need to act on SABC.

Following our resident judges’ nationwide the audition search will take place in Pietermaritzburg, East London and Pretoria. Fourteen of the hottest undiscovered actors will be brought to the sets of SABC’s dramas to face the definitive actors’ challenge.

Each week, the top 14 actors will be put through episodic acting challenges that will test their craft. Challenges include learning a script in 15 minutes; pulling of a romantic love scene; character improvisation; character makeovers; and so much more.

The competition gets heated as our judges make the gruelling decision to cut one actress and one actor in each challenge episode. Tensions run high as the series progresses with fewer actors in sight on that big prize – to make the final casting cut on one of SABC’s primetime dramas.
