2Grant Swanby is Steve
With over 20 years in the industry, Grant Swanby is no stranger to our screens. His  filmography includes Blood Diamond, Invictus and Mandela – Long Walk to Freedom, and  his TV work includes Those Who Can’t, Isidingo and the Heartlines film, The Miners. With  his range of acting skills, he can go from being a comic in one role to a South African James  Bond in the next.

In Beyond The River he plays Steve, an English teacher with a passion for poetry and  canoeing. His passion for canoeing is also his escape from facing crippling issues in his  marriage and family life.  Regarded as a has-been by his previous canoeing partner, Steve is  on a mission to win another gold in the  arduous Dusi marathon – and needs the  inexperienced Duma to achieve this. But can he lay aside his hot-  headed nature and  confront the demons of his past to do so?
