Front Cover
Spearhead, 2002 - Actors - 320 pages
Blaise Koch is an award-winning actor who has appeared in 263 professional productions. From My Fair Lady to Shakespeare, to playing Tannie Evita's beloved son with Pieter Dirk-Uys. His repertoire is wide and he is considered one of South Africa's most talented and versatile actors. Blaise Koch is also HIV positive, and has had full-blown AIDS for the last eleven years. This is his story of fame and success and remarkable courage that is coloured with his wry sense of humour and self-deprecation. Blaise has no time for self-pity and continues to work, with a schedule that would leave most people breathless. This book is a testament to the life of an actor and how he deals with his experience of being diagnosed with AIDS. Many well-known celebrities and media personalities feature in this story, which makes story even more interesting with some wicked anecdotes. No other South African artist of his stature and acclaim has acknowledged his or her HIV status before, and Koch's intention is to publicly acknowledge his with the publication of this book
