Actress Camilla Waldman has shared her tribute to her ex-husband Jamie Bartlett.
This after the former Rhythm City actor’s funeral at St George’s Cathedral in Cape Town on June 2.
James Barlett was a British-born South African actor. He was best known for his theatre work and his role as the wicket puppet master, David Genaro, on Rhythm City.
Jamie was divorced from the former Generations actress Camilla Waldman. The two stars had a son together, named Hector.
Camilla took to her Instagram timeline on Tuesday. She shared an old family portrait and wrote a touching message to the veteran actor.
“Rest in peace Jamie Bartlett, father to Hector friend, fellow-actor, V8 Fairlane force, urging me, us, to meet life — curious, fearless, running ahead to meet the ball — going big or not at all,” she wrote.
“I knew your picture before your presence. We were young together, there was a lot we didn’t yet know. And you shook my world. You called me out, you taught me, you gave me Hector, I tattooed your name and wanted to love you forever.
“We carry your imprint, Jamie — Hector and I — and we remember you. And we are not alone, you meant a lot to many. You are remembered You are loved, Jamie. Be at peace friend.”
The ex-couple divorced in 2008 and they shared a handsome son together, Hector. In a heartfelt Instagram post, Camila shared an old black and white portrait of them with their son, and paid tribute to him.
She reminisced on their journey together as lovers and thanked her brother for the portrait that has created beautiful memories for them. “This is the only family portrait of the three that made our us – recently re-discovered. Thank-you to my brother Sacha Waldman for making it. I am thankful now for this gallery wall to place it,” she wrote.
