Two extras from the film Hansie which was completed in 2007, have not yet been paid, Beeld reported today.

Marie and Braam de Villiers, both 72, said they had been waiting four years, for the R500 they were owed.Hansie is the story of star cricket player Hansie Cronje, his involvement in match fixing and finally his death in a plane crash.

Marie de Villiers said they had taken part in the movie for the excitement and challenge, but it would have been nice to have bought each of her grandchildren a Christmas present with the money.

Justin Browne, of Shoot Casting, which arranged the extras, production team and caterers, said the company had been paid, but he would need until Monday to look into why the De Villiers had not been paid, Beeld reported.
