Oros Mampofu on what keeps him grounded in showbiz

Popular South African actor Oros Mampofu credits his faith and wanting to build a legacy for his two daughters as reasons he remains grounded despite his increasing fame.

Not only did he make his breakthrough on SABC’s Skeem Saam but he has gone on to star in Netflix’s Savage Beauty and KykNET’s Hartklop.

The 32-year-old told the publication having Jesus Christ as his lord and saviour is what’s been grounding him in the entertainment industry since he found fame.

“You transverse in your journey, you learn, see and experience a lot of things and you realise very quickly the person who keeps us under the hand is him. Jesus is really the one. It can all seem like the perfect answer or the novel answer but it is until you’ve experienced everything you realise that this really makes a difference. Knowing I’m safe under him is really good.”

Oros has two daughters with his partner Bianca Carmichael and he wants to model a life for his children they can look back on.

“I think my desire, my hunger to be an example to them in the best way possible, it keeps me hungry and aggressive, but it also keeps me anxious and aware. I’m trying to keep that balance because you can move boldly and be confident and crash like that car moving at 180km/h but be too slow and end up losing your opportunities because you are under the shell.

“So it’s always this game of figuring out the balance, and always trying to strike a healthy balance and it takes discernment. Obviously we are human, we will fall at some point because we are not perfect. The only person who is perfect is Jesus.”
