The 37- years- old superstar originally from Cape Town was suspected to have relocated to London, United Kingdom. Rumours were she married a white man and eloped to the States.

The couple became parents to a handsome child. The child’s name is Cedric Thivillon Junior.

Followers on Twitter were so shocked by her appearance they commented expressing their disbelief. 

“Bathong! What happened to her?! It’s giving Britney Spears,” a user said.
“So happy to see Gail October, wow I love this coloured girl,” another user said.
“Good heavens what happened to her,” commented another user.
Pam is not the only celebrity missing in action.  There is also Charl Timotheus, who acted in Backstage as Ziggy. The handsome Charl was everyone crush back then, it couldn’t help that he portrayed a sweet character.
Charl also disappeared from our screens without a warning or trace. He did though according to a News24 article  moved to an Afrikaans entertainment after his stint on Backstage. 

He commented in his interview: “I’m in charge of all the advertiser-funded shows on KykNET. People always ask me why I don’t act anymore but the people, who know me, know that I never intended to be an actor. It just happened. I love it but it was never first prized for me.”

“The acting thing was something that kind of happened sporadically. I never really had any real intention of being an actor. I was at varsity doing my honours and I joined an agency to get extra cash, and Backstage approached me with so many zeros that I couldn’t refuse,” he continued to say when they asked him.

We hope to see more of Pam and Charl; hopefully they will resurface on our screens.
