‘Being a Citizen of Paarl-Wellington Makes Me So Proud’ – Actor Hein Poole

Born and bred in Drakenstein, Hein Poole has made his mark as an all-rounder entertainer, showcasing his versatility as a performing artist, scriptwriter, and entrepreneur. A proud alumnus of St Albans Primary in Wellington and New Orleans Secondary in Paarl, he has been performing since the age of 14. Hein is perhaps best known for his appearances on local TV screens; he starred in several South African series such as Sterlopers , Scandal , Arendsvlei , Suidooster, and many more. However, his passion extends beyond on-screen performances, and he also offers educational theatre experiences to schools.

Hein is a proud community member and believes one should take ownership of your environment and report issues. He uses Drakenstein Municipality’s SeeClickFix app regularly and has been impressed with the way it streamlines non-emergency issue reporting in the area, as well as the quick responses. While his performances might take him all over South Africa, for Hein, “there is no place quite like Paarl-Wellington”. He loves the unique warmth and charm the area holds. Most of all, he is proud to be a citizen of Paarl-Wellington because it is such a welcoming place.
