Speaking about the reunion the SAFTA award winning Lorcia said it was a dream come true to be able to reunite the original cast.

"What an incredible moment to be reunited with the other cast members, and watching ourselves be so young and where we are in our lives you would have never imagined where we'd be," she said.

Lorcia also said that she and Clint Brink were the first people to speak coloured Afrikaans on national television. Charl said working with the likes of Baby Cele-Maloka( another original cast member) was an honour as he had learnt about them in film school,so sharing a set felt like a full circle moment.
