Occupation South African actor

Brett Goldin (October 21, 1977 - April 16, 2006) was a South African actor and part of the Crazy Monkey comedy troupe.


Early life

Brett Goldin was educated at the King David School, Victory Park, in Johannesburg and at Crawford College High School before moving to the University of Cape Town.

In 2004, Goldin wrote his first stage play, a one-man show entitled Bad Apple, which examined what would happen if a Columbine-style killing spree were to occur at a wealthy public school in Johannesburg. The production opened at the Intimate Theatre in Cape Town, directed by Matthew Wild on August 11, 2004. The production received excellent reviews from the local press.


Goldin was murdered alongside a friend, Richard Bloom on April 16, 2006. The two were killed with single shots to the head in Mowbray, Cape Town, after they had left a party in the trendy Camps Bay area. They had been carjacked, assaulted and shot execution-style. Bloom, a designer, was a label manager for the Cape Town-based Maze clothing company.

Reportedly found naked except for their socks, some media coverage of the young men's murders was deemed "particularly disturbing and highly insensitive".[1]

Goldin had been set to go to the United Kingdom as part of a South African production of Hamlet in Stratford-upon-Avon.


Brett Goldin was survived by his parents, Peter and Denise, and his only sibling, a sister, Samantha.
