Every great actor has another great actor who he draws inspiration from. For South African actor and Volvo ambassador Thapelo Mokoena, it's American star Denzel Washington. Speaking exclusively to Briefly News, the Fatal Seduction star said being in a project with Washington is his biggest dream. He said:

“(That experience) would seal my yearning to go as big as I can… to stand out in my career."

The Wild at Heart actor has an extensive portfolio of both local and international productions, but there are three that hold special places in his heart.

"I delivered my second son myself alongside the midwife. She asked the doula to step out of the room as we had already been through this process in the same room and she felt I was the perfect person to assist in bringing that little man to this earth.
"That was the most amazing experience and biggest connection I have ever felt to a human being, namely my wife. That was when I knew, no matter what, we would always be one."
