Sarah Thompson, best known to TV viewers as Rose from the cancelled family favorite “7th Heaven,” was on cloud nine when she landed a role in the upcoming biopic chronicling the controversial life and tragic death of cricket star Hansie Cronje. The actress, who is still enjoying her first few months of married life after her July 2007 wedding to screenwriter Brad Kane, will step into the shoes of the sports legend’s wife during the movie’s three-month filming schedule, which will take place in several South African communities. According to the web site Filmmaker South Africa, scenes for the tentatively-titled “Hansie” have already been shot in the Cape Town suburb of Bergvliet, as well as in two athletic arenas– Wanderers stadium in Johannesburg and SuperSport Park in Centurion.
