Jacques Gombault

Spiritual Inspiration

His spiritual growth went hand in hand with his development as an actor and it was inevitable that the two would meet. He completed his BA.Drama (Hons) dissertation, “Aspects of Drama in Bridging the Communication Gap in the Worship Service” Cum Laude at the end of 1995. It was this aspect that led him to many Christian roles in film productions – Jacques also wrote and directed 5 youth films. In 2015, his first English film Khumbula – I will Remember won the Silver Crown Award in Orlando Florida in the category Best Youth Evangelism Film.

The Actor

Jacques Gombault’s first TV role after his studies was in Deon Opperman’s “Jackpot” in 1995. In 1996, he starred in the American action film “Operation Delta Force” with international stars such as Ernie Hudson, Joe Lara and Jeff Fahey. This is followed by various roles in TV productions such as, Egoli, 7de Laan, Laksman, Isidingo and Villa Rosa. His big breakthrough came in 2002 with the role of Robert Gouws in Kyknet’s “Song for Katryn.” This was followed by roles with more substance, such as Daniel in “Dit wat Stom is,” Danny in “Dryfsand,” Herman in “Erfsondes”, Andries in “Kruispad”, Blackie in “Getroud met Rugby” and more recently Kolonel de Lange in ” 7de Laan ”and Jonas in“ Binnelanders ”.
