Nairobi Half Life actor Mugambi Nthiga at the Top Actor Africa auditions in Nairobi

Check out the gallery of the Top Actor Africa auditions held in Nairobi in October.

The auditions for the BET hit reality show Top Actor Africawhich were held at the Kenya National Theatre in Nairobi in October, saw over 150 eager participants turning up for the auditions.

The turnout saw youth from Kenya, Uganda and even Nigeria gather to try their chance, some of them being first timers while others - like Nairobi Half Life's Mugambi Nthiga and How to Find a Husband's Mumbi Maina - were actors that have graced the screen before.

Those who qualified then headed to South Africa for the final selection of 12 contestants from the continent, judged by actor Gerald Langiri who was the casting director, together with BET's Kgomotso Matusanye and Top Actor Africa producer Samad Davis .

The finalists will now compete for their chance to win $10 000, a one-year contract with international representation and access to Hollywood auditions when Top Actor Africa premieres in February 2016 on BET (129).
