It was a difficult decision for Reandi Grey to say goodbye to her popular 7de Laan character Esti. “Since 2017, Esti has experienced love and pain, but in the end she was happy and it was difficult to leave with Esti in such a good place,” says the actress as she bows out of 7de Laan. What she will miss most is Esti’s recent marriage to Rickus (André Lotter). “Esti had so many disappointments, but with Rickus she has found a new life and their wedding day will always remain one of my highlights in the soapie,” adds Reandi.

BLOWN APART

Reandi knew that her time on 7de Laan was coming to an end – she gave notice in August 2019 and joined new M-Net telenovela Legacy (see more on p6 & 35) in September. Reandi and her character left Hillside with a literal bomb blast – an explosion at The Heights apartment block shortly after Youth Day left Esti with serious head trauma and she was taken to an intensive care unit. “That was the last we saw of her. It was very dramatic, but I liked how the writers wrote Esti out of the storyline. She went out with a big bang,” says the actress.
