Armand Aucamp stole thousands of people's hearts in 'Die Boekklub' when he played the role of the heartbreaker and writer, Tom.

He has played enough roles, such as Jan van Riebeeck in the movie Krotoa, Ballade vir 'n Enkeling, that South Africans will immediately recognise him.

He has been wanting to get something off his chest for a long time and shared it with award-winning writer Hanlie Retief.

"For the first 24 years I couldn't stand in my own shoes. I walked around with something I couldn't even call myself. I'm gay," Aucamp admitted.
