Austin Shandu

Missing out on winning Class Act 2 in 2011 did not deter Austin Shandu from pursuing his acting career. If anything, being a finalist opened up doors for him. Shandu who graduated with a degree in motion picture and live performance from film school AFDA in 2007, has appeared in a number of films including My Name is Cage, Nick Pinch Steal, Living in Limbo and Two Bucks.

He is also as comfortable on stage as he is on camera and his work in theatre includes Fight Club, The Vagina Monologues and No Way Out. Shandu guest starred in as a medical student, in an episode of the kykNET soapie Binneland, in January 2013.

In his latest role Shandu plays Sdumo in the second season of Intersexions.
