She stars as advocate, Lucia Verwey, in this romantic teenage comedy which celebrates romance, Shakespeare, cricket, friendship, unconditional acceptance, cricket and love.
“I really enjoyed my role and I loved working with the very professional and friendly crew. It is movies like this that will give South Africans hope for the future”, she says.

Sarahann and her family will spend Christmas in Buffelsbaai this year. “Christmas Day is always fun at our house. Someone dresses up as Christmas Father and then each one need to perform a song, a dance or a poem before receiving his present. The tradition was started by my Oupa Ben Steyn and we will always follow it in remembrance of loved ones that have passed on” she says.
Although her kids are still small and are very excited about Santa’s arrival, Sarahann has taught them that the day is not only about the gifts but about celebrating the birth of Christ. “We are concentrating on the story of Jesus and the two of them really come up with the most interesting questions,” says a proud mom Sarahann.
