His life changed when he enrolled at the Animal Acting Academy – on completion of his 10 week course his portfolio went to his casting agent “Tails Up”. To start his acting career he worked small parts in two adverts.


His lucky break came when he auditioned for a part in the local feature film “ ‘n Pawpaw vir my darling”. The film is based on the book ‘n Pawpaw vir my darling written by Jeanne Goosen. The film was directed by the well-known South African “Koos Roets”.  Main actors include South African stars such as Deon Lotz, Deirdre Wolhuter, Jana Nortier,  Sandra Prinsloo, Willie Esterhuizen, Brümilda Van Rensburg and many more. Tobie Cronje becomes Zeus’ voice in the film as Tsjaka (Zeus) narrates an entertaining story of a family living in Damville.


The film is to start at selected Ster Kinekors from 8 January 2016.
