Jabu Mahlangu was all excited about The Queen treating him on set, that is the SA television show.
Here's what the former Amakhosi had to say about his acting debut.
"They welcomed me with open hands and were very supportive. I could not believe that I was sitting with the people that we see every day on our screens," he told the Sowetan newspaper.
Now, he thinks he could be regular actor, and is a natural when you consider he has TV presentation experience.
"I believe that everyone is born multitalented. I might have been a soccer star, but I believe that I was born with an acting talent. I don't have to work hard."
You can watch Mahlangu on The Queen on May 17.
