Top Actor Africa producers are looking for fearless, strong personalities, full of ambition and confidence, who will do what it takes to be Africa’s Top Actor.
Launched earlier this year, BET is the sister channel to MTV Base, which played a key role in launching the acting careers of Lupita Nyong’o and Nick Mutuma, thanks to their appearances in sex and relationships drama, MTV Shuga.
Top Actor Africa will test the actors to the limits over seven weeks in nine vigorous acting challenges, taking them through every genre from Improv to Comedy, Theatre, Soapie, Commercial, Romance, Horror, Drama and Action.
Along the way they will work with Hollywood and local industry experts including celebrity actors, casting agents, directors, producers, managers and writers.
