South African actor Mampho Brescia stars in the remake of the Arnold Schwarzenegger and Vanessa Williams 1996 film Eraser.
Eraser: Reborn, directed by John Pogue (The Fast and the Furious, Skulls) and stars Dominic Sherwood (Shadowhunters), centres on a secret agency that specialises in engineering faking the deaths of witnesses that need to leave no trace of their existence.
The former Isibaya actor plays Marshall Rhodes, director of the US Marshall services, according to a press statement.
Brescia said about preparing for the role, "The level of details required was on another level: I had to engage with former high ranking US Marshalls to really get under their skin, and then spent weeks just to perfect my US accent."
On what the role means for her, Brescia said: "After spending some greatly cherished years on a soapie, Isibaya - and then going on to guest star on Netflix's Shadow and a Donovan Marsh film I am all Girls, to get back to the intense, exhilarating and greatly detailed work involved in a US Feature Film has further worked my acting muscles and expanded my range."
Brescia added that it was a privilege to "work with professionals of the calibre of John Pogue and Dominic Sherwood."
