Graeme Watkins is a born and bred Capetonian. He is the youngest of three children and because his two older siblings were much older than him, he grew up keeping himself company and very quickly developed a vivid imagination for tales and stories. Graeme was a slow learner and at a young age discovered that he had dyslexia and attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) – Graeme explains that his journey to the stage began with detention periods at school.
“My English teacher had had enough of me disrupting the class and as punishment I had to work behind the scenes at a variety concert. That’s when I realised drama could be an outlet for my energy.”
He is an extremely funny and fluent speaker and has participated in many corporate functions, both as entertainer and host or MC. Most of his work in the last year was at Stardust Restaurant and for Think Theatre Productions of which he is a co-founder.
It was during his December holiday 2008 that he was convinced to enter Idols and was voted into the 2nd runner position up of SA ldols Season 5 – a clear indication of his immense popularity and appeal amongst the public!
Graeme is gonna be the next best thing and is currently working on his debut CD – watch this space …
