Cedric Fourie Biography
Cedric Anthony Fourie is a South African engineer, actor and fitness fanatic who first gained serious attention as Lehasa Maphosa, a wealthy businessman in the soapie Skeem Saam.
In real life, he’s as focused as the character he played in
Cedric Fourie was born in 1990, so he’s currently 31 years. He celebrated his birthday in March.
It’s unknown who Cedric Fourie’s partner is. Where other celebs would flaunt their catches online as well as advertise the finest colors of their relationships, Cedric would rather keep his out of the public radar.
He has a son whom he describes as his motivation. With his son always around him, he says he doesn’t need to surround himself with motivational speakers.
By the way, speculation had been rife he was in a relationship with local comedian Lasizwe after suggestive photos of them together popped online. Fourie neither denies nor confirms the relationship but happily admits he’s a champion of LGBTQI rights
He might not have had it easy growing up, but Cedric Fourie sure knows the importance of real estate investments. According to reports, he owns a house in the Soweto area of South Africa, where he grew up, another in Gauteng, and yet another in Houghton… not a bad portfolio, we might say.
Financially, Cedric Fourie isn’t doing badly. His earnings as an actor are said to be pretty high. He wouldn’t be caught discussing his net worth but estimates show he’s worth about R25 million.
When Cedric Fourie was very young, he lost his father. He was raised by his mother and grandmother to whom he’s seriously attached to this day. He imbibed a lot from his upbringing and is said to have a deep respect for women as a result.
He routinely posts pictures of his mother and other family members on his Instagram page. In one of his posts, he had reflected that a son might love his best friend the most and his mother the longest.
In an industry that appears to glorify the exotic, Cedric Fourie might be listed among those pushing the exotic message. The actor is an unapologetic lover of great cars. He appears to have a soft spot for the Mercedes Benz brand, though.
Education & Career
The Skeem Saam actor matriculated in 2007. He got a bursary and studied computer networks at the University of the Witwatersrand. He’d followed that up with a postgraduate degree from the University of Cape Town (UCT).
Before he delved into the world of acting, he had worked as an engineer at Huawei Technologies, Shiny Ericcson, and the Mobax Group.
Cedric Fourie’s interest in acting dates back to when he was younger. He was intrigued by the figures on the big screen and thought he could do exactly what he was seeing.
He would pop at auditions and be told he doesn’t sound black enough. But his faith in making it as an actor kept him on track. Today, of course, his face is almost everywhere.
He has acted in flicks like Isibaya, Sokhulu & Partners, Generations, and Harvest.
He might be one of the famous faces in the world of South African film right now, but Cedric isn’t resting on his laurels. He has big dreams of one day taking his acting international, as well as owning a production company.
