Curro Aurora learner cast in local thriller by Curro Create mentor
Curro Aurora Grade 12 learner Liam Bosman will soon be making his silver screen debut after being cast in a new teen thriller, Nagvrees.
Liam participated in the Curro Create #Straight2Camera Monologue Festival in 2020, where mentor and adjudicator Nicola Hanekom noticed his talents.
He ultimately finished second in the national competition, and his performance in the Monologue Festival lingered in Hanekom’s mind. She wanted him to audition for a role in the movie she is in the process of creating and Liam was successfully cast.

Hanekom said, “I had the great privilege to be a mentor-adjudicator for Curro Create #Straight2Camera Monologue Festival. It was a pleasure to witness the talent of the young actors and it was during the competition that I spotted Liam Bosman.
“His acting during the festival stayed with me and the idea started to brew to audition him for a film I was busy planning. A few months later, Liam just finished the filming for the role of Basjan in my teen thriller, Nagvrees. It was wonderful to work with him on set. He was professional and wonderful to work with.”
Nicola Hanekom is a multi-award-winning actress, writer and director who is deeply involved in the Curro Create platform at the school.
