Thursday, September 8, 2016

Quinne Brown Huffman back on the 7de Laan set; returns to the SABC2 soap after a decade to reprise her character of Connie who's back with a big secret.

After an ongoing string of exists from the soap, a familiar face is returning to 7de Laan with actress Quinne Brown Huffman reprising her beloved role of Connie.

Quinne Brown Huffman has been back on the Lonehill set of the Afrikaans SABC2 soap for almost a month since 12 August with the character of Connie who will make her first on-screen appearance in the fictitious Hillside suburb on SABC2 on 31 October.

Quinne who played one of the original characters and appeared in the first episode, left 7de Laan in 2004 and then move to America.

Now after a decade, with her husband Ryan and two children Charlotte (5) and Lara (2), she is back in South Africa and reached out to the soap about possibly reprising her old role.

This time Connie, who started as a waitress in Oppiekoffie, is back with a secret, with the Hillsiders who won't know the real reason why the character is back.

"We can't be happier about the decision [to rejoin the soap]," says 7de Laan. "7de Laan is proud to have one of our old favourites back".
