Bohang Moeko a sensation on our screens.
We all know him for playing the handsome boxer in Ring of Lies but Bohang Moeko has dreamt of being an actor from a young age and only started pursuing his dream a few years ago. Upon attending his first acting class, he knew that this was the path he wanted to be on and had attended many auditions until he landed his first role on Zabalaza.
Bohang ‘s character on the SAFTA nominated soapie Ring of Lies went through some trials from losing his girlfriend, to drug abuse and his mother coming back into his life only to disappear again. He went on to find true love and he took another blow after losing his title belt. This character has honed Bohang’s talent and he is proud of his growth and the hard work the entire cast put into making Ring of Lies a hit show.
This sensation is also passionate about theatre and would love to do at least one show a year. Bohang’s preparation for a new role requires him to spend reasonable time with his script, he references his characters by watching a couple of films, doing some online research and if needs be, he speaks to as many relevant people as possible. Moeko’s main focus is to stay true to his craft, to produce the best work that he can and to remain grounded in the fact that no one can deny great effort. In an industry that can be distracting to one’s goals, he chooses to let noise be noise and his work to be the louder voice.If he ever got the chance to have a movie produced about his life, he would like Martin Scorsese to direct it because he wouldn’t be afraid to show and tell the whole truth. In closing Bohang firmly believes that it is possible to achieve your dreams if you want it badly enough and work even harder to make them a reality.
