• 9 July and the beginning of August, we will deliver written and oral submissions to support the Bills that protect the earning rights of actors. If we fail, we will never see meaningful industry transformation in our lifetime. Included will be our petition of OVER 2000 signatures. Make sure it includes YOURS!

  • ALL Actors! We need your voices to be heard.

    We need the world to see and hear that our industry supports transformation. That our industry supports FAIR compensation that INCLUDES actor royalties.

    We need you to record a video message and put it on your online presence! Facebook, Instagram, Twitter. We need all our voices out there under one banner so that when SAGA delivers this message to Parliament, it is a message from all of us.

Carlynn de Waal-Smit - National Secretary/Treasurer

Carlynn studied Dance and Musical Theatre at Pretoria Technikon, she is a shareholder of Contractors Artists, an actors agency, established in 1996. She is the SAGA representative on the SASFED council. The lack of professional standards and exploitation of the rights of performers in the industry inspired her to collaborate with a number of performers and initiate SAGA. As a Founder member, she is committed to upliftment, education and working for the rights of professional actors in the industry.
