In the latest season of Spoorloos: Die Eiland, the life of Stefan Claassen, played by van Jaarsveld, an adventurous young architect, is hurled into chaos when an unfortunate chance encounter with his long-lost love not only reignites his feelings for her but drags him into a web of deceit when she disappears.

I'm very excited about this opportunity. This is the first time I'm portraying such a serious role. I feel honoured to be part of such an incredible production – Spoorloos' quality is next level.
