A South Africa based actor, Jeremiah Ndlovu added his own name in the credits of several long, short feature films and in TV movies, all shot in South Africa starting from mid 1990s. Some of them were co-productions or had a considerable visibility in the international film market, such as John Boorman’s Country of My Skull (2004) and Gavin Hood’s Tsotsi (2005).
He was involved also in the production of three films with a connection to Italy, playing in secondary roles. The first was a TV movie by Faliero Rosati also known as Sign of the Ape. The second was the acclaimed Hotel Rwanda, nominated for three Oscars, in which he played alongside Don Cheadle, Sophie Okonedo, Desmond Dube, Tony Kgoroge, Fana Mokoena, Lelethi Khumalo and Mosa Kaiser. The third was the horror Ghost Son, also starring Mosa Kaiser, Mary Twala and Vanessa Cooke: in the Italian version Ndlovu was dubbed by Goffredo Matassi.
