Candice Modiselle is a young rising star and all-round entertainer, born and bred in the City of Johannesburg. She is currently an Honours student attending the University of Witwatersrand where she is working towards completing a Bachelor degree in Dramatic Arts- majoring in Dance Theatre and Arts Management. Her friends have often described her as a contagious ball of energy that lights up a room with her bubbly personality. At a young age, she always had a love for observing and imitating those around her. Only in 2010, when she ventured into Dramatic Arts as her Matric subject of choice, did she discover her true passion for entertainment. From that point, Candice acted in her first stage production at McAuley House School, Cagebirds, where she played the lead role of Wild One. She then went on to performing in her very first Eisteddfod where she received highest accolades for her exceptional performance as the best performer of the event and was the very first recipient of her school Oscar Award. This was followed by her participation in the following year’s Eisteddfod where she once again scooped up the award as the best performer of the night and the school Oscar Award for best actress. In her matric year, she undertook the position as the Head of the Drama Department on the Leadership Team and completed the year as the overall highest achiever of Drama Theory and Practical. In 2012 Candice was selected as one of only six finalists from a national search for Grade 12 learners, and individuals under the age of 25 who are not regarded as professional, interested in pursuing a career in the performing arts. Candidates were required to demonstrate competence in acting, dancing and singing and exceptional talent in at least one of the disciplines. The six finalists selected from these rounds were judged on prepared pieces comprising acting, singing and dancing and two group numbers which they performed at the Final of the DALRO Nedbank Scholarships Programme, hosted at the UJ Arts Centre Theatre at the University of Johannesburg on 04 October 2012. Being a young lady with an immense love for the arts, particularly Drama, she has participated in a number of professional stage productions on both the Wits and Grahamstown National Arts Festival platforms, such as Pilcrow, a Liquid Fusion Dance Theatre production, performed in 2015. Later that year, she performed in the dance production, His-teria Type, directed and choreographed by Francesca Matthys. Candice has also gone on to choreograph a dance theatre production, Unbecoming, which featured at the opening of the Wits Detours Festival. She also performed at the Detours Dance Festival in a piece choreographed by Joni Barnard, Echoes of Salt. She later choreographed and performed in her solo production- And When You See Hi mat the SA's Dirty Laundry Festival in December 2016. As an actress, the past 4 years have seen her feature as the lead role in two Durban Film Festival Movies produced by Natives At Large, alongside the Youth Filmmaker Project, namely Thato and Bittersweet. Along with her acting experience, she has also featured in the Vuzu Amp 2016 ‘Love me Tinder’ Ad campaign. Candice Modiselle joined the popular YOTV family as one of its newest presenter additions in April 2016 and can be seen on television screens nationwide every Wednesday and Friday at 15h30, SABC 1. Her achievements in the past year have caught the eye of a number of publicity platforms and gained coverage as a budding artist on the rise, many of which have deemed her the third ‘Modiselle Sister taking over showbiz’. Her latest career endeavour and achievement was joining the cast of national multi award-winning soapie, Generations as the rebellious juvenile delinquent, Lerato. Candice strongly believes that though she has many accolades under her belt at a young age, this is only the beginning for her promising career. She aims to become a household name whose deeply rooted passions as a multifaceted artist will catapult her to international stages and screens.
