Mamello Makhetha

I am an actress, voice artist, writer and producer known for the web-series Grow. My latest project, Wounds, will be on Magic One(M-Net), which is part of DSTV. South Africa's largest TV Channel platform.

I have tons of improv training , I am well versed in dramatic scripts , and because of my love and training with improv, I also have amazing sense of comedy and timing. This means I would be great at all genres that you have to work with, whether it be for a class scene, a self tape or an audition, I am deeply invested and inspired to get the best in character, story and performance from you and our session.

My native accent is neutral South African.
