There must be something in the water at Skeem Saam as it seems to be wedding season among the cast, with Amanda the latest of five actors to get hitched.  

Amanda had a tough 2021 when she was dealt a double blow and had to lay her mother and grandmother to rest. She later fought Covid-19, and after coming out on the other side victorious she had a lot to be thankful for.

I didn't want to celebrate my birthday this year. There's nothing worth celebrating. However, two or three weeks before my birthday, my siblings and I tested positive for Covid-19. We all had different symptoms and some had it easier than others. Almost 30 year old me had it hard.

“I was really struggling, so when I finally became Covid-19 free and could leave the house, but most importantly could breathe, walk around without holding onto anything and my feet weren't swelling any more, I realised the importance of celebrating life,” she said.
