In 2000, South African actor Neil Sandilands became famous for his role as the quirky chef Bart Kruger in the SABC2 soap '7de Laan.' In 2007, he left the soap to pursue his dream of becoming an international actor in Los Angeles.

In 2017, Sandilands had a guest role in the long-running CBS series 'NCIS' and joined the main cast of The CW's superhero drama 'The Flash' as Clifford DeVoe / The Thinker.

In 2020, Sandilands told the Scenic Drive team that he will be in the movie, 'News Of The World', with award-winning actor Tom Hanks. The movie is about the rescue of a young girl who has been kidnapped.

"To work internationally is not always about the accent, however, for me, it is about the authenticity of the character that I need to portray," Sandilands said.

2021 is another exciting year for Sandilands, as he will soon be in another Hollywood series, 'Sweet Tooth', produced by legendary actor Robert Downey Jr., as well as releasing his brand new album, 'Sangoma Sandilands & Jou Pa se Posse (Maanskyn)'.

'Sweet Tooth' follows the story of Gus — part deer, part boy — who leaves his home in the forest to find the outside world ravaged by a cataclysmic event. He joins a ragtag family of humans and animal-children hybrids like himself, searching for answers about this new world and the mystery behind his hybrid origins.

Sandilands will play General Steven Abbot in the series, self-appointed general for a post-apocalyptic army who leads through wit, intimidation, and quirkiness.
