Watching Isidingo actress Kgomotso Christopher (32) and her family make their way through the crowd at the Lion Park sanctuary in Johannesburg is a bit like watching a South African version of the Jolie-Pitts.
Granted, there aren’t six kids tearing around but the attention they attract is very similar. Everywhere they go people stare, point and whisper.
Yet even if Kgomotso weren’t famous this family would turn heads – there’s something about her exquisite looks, her husband, Calvin Christopher’s, designer stubble and kids Larona (4) and Lesika’s (2) cute outfits that catch the eye.
Kgomotso has been on the hit SABC3 soap for just a few months, playing Katlego, Jefferson Sibeko’s (Vusi Kunene) manipulative wife, but she’s garnered quite a following.
Fans have already dubbed her the new Cherel de Villiers (Michelle Botes) after it emerged she was the one who shot Jefferson’s son, Sifiso (Katlego Ramaphakela), leaving him in a coma.
YOU’s Gilda Narsimdas chatted to Kgomotso about how much her life differs from her character’s, how she and Calvin met and settling down in SA after living in New York and London. Read more in YOU 1 December 2011.
