The young actor, who forms part of 7de Laan's new internship programme, first made his appearance on the popular local soapie as "Vernon" earlier this week.

Vernon was first introduced to the viewers when he marched into the boutique with his stylish outfit and vibrant personality. He has a keen eye for colour and fashion and is a typical fashionista and knows all about the latest trends.
