Lerato Marabe as Pretty on Skeem Saam


prettyLerato Marabe, born in Vosloorus attends Parkdene High.  Lerato plays the role of Pretty in Skeem Saam. She lives with her mom and brother.  She says her mom was very strict but has sweetened up a bit now.  She describes herself as ‘talkative, hyperactive and playful’.  She says “some times I would talk so much in class my teacher would send me out the room, but now I’ve changed.”

When Lerato was little she wanted to be a princess, then a teacher because her mom was a teacher, now she is confident she wants to be an actress.  In her leisure time she likes to sing and dance with friends.  She is a keen netball player and sometimes plays hockey.

Lerato listens to Yfm because “they are hip and happening, they play songs that the youth like.  I like Hip Hop and R&B.”  Her favourite movie star is Tom Cruise and she enjoys Medical Detectives, “they specialize in forensics and that’s what I want to study.”

Lerato is afraid of the dark.  She doesn’t like her small hips and can’t wait for them to become big and round.  Her keen sense of humour is evident when she says “I laugh a lot at silly jokes but mostly if I trip and nobody sees then I laugh at myself.”

Her message to the youth is “fight for what you want and study hard because education is your success.”

Skeem Saam is a blend of stories about the journey to manhood. The local drama series examines the plight of today’s male children and the tough challenges they face transitioning into manhood.
