On Saturday morning’s edition of Saturday’s Role With Reno, host Renos Spanoudes spoke to Sharon Spiegel-Wagner about Bedford Wives.
Each Thursday evening since the end of August, the charismatic actress Sharon Spiegel-Wagner has had South Africans glued to their television sets watching Bedford Wives on SABC 3, as the local comedy-drama unfolds with her character, Despina Giannopolous, taking centre stage.
Set in the lavish but seedy Johannesburg east suburb of Bedfordview, Bedford Wives follows the lives of four women and a community of Bedfordview criminals who, on the surface, live pristine and perfect lives but, behind closed doors, have skeletons in their closets and secrets aplenty.
When her restaurateur husband, Marco Giannopoulos, is found dead under a side of lamb and dripping in gourmet olive oil, Bedfordview housewife and Mrs South Africa entrant, Despina, vows to keep the family businesses going – but then learns the real family business is crime…
Nothing is as it seems…
Filled with drama and intrigue, this crime dark comedy has Sharon Spiegel Wagner leading an all-star cast that includes Annabel Linder, Christopher Jaftha, Gabriella Cirillo, Sibulele Gcilitshana, Zane Meas, Jonathan Taylor, Shaeleen Tobin, Russel Savadier and Paige Bonnin.
