Harald Richter, a well-known face in the Afrikaans television industry, concluded his studies applied his talent for performing, to almost every existing genre, from stage dramas to television soaps, from presenting to commercials and from opera to pantomime and cabarets.
Harald played one of the main characters, the quasi-camel man, Charl Retief, in the kykNET soap, Villa Rosa, for the past eight years, and won the South African Afrikaans music VONK award, for the best Boeremusiek Album of 2009, called Ou Kraalliedjies, during this time.
He currently is the producer and director of the hugely successful and much loved improvisational sitcom, Proesstraat on kykNet, which won 3 SAFTA’s, one of which was awarded to Harald for best director. The new game show on kykNET, called My Man Kan, is also produced by Harald, and he hopes that it would hold another success story for the channel. Harald is also one of the anchoring presenters for kykNET’s breakfast show, DAGBREEK.
