What is the highlight of your career so far?
I played a part in a BBC series called The Sisters
. It was based on D.H. Lawrence’s Women in Love.
We shot in some truly beautiful parts of the cape and I got to speak to and observe some very interesting people. It was great to be part of an international production.What’s the best advice you’ve ever been given?
Professionally- always, always be on time, in fact be 15 mins early if you can. Generally - treat yourself as you would your best friend, with lots of love and kindness. And say thank you often.We often hear about the glamorous life of performers – can you describe a moment where it hasn’t felt glamorous at all?
I can't think of a specific moment, but in general; actors spend a lot of time waiting… waiting for your scene, or technical problems to be sorted out, but I’m so used to it now it’s not a problem anymore. The rest is great, not what I would call glamorous, but good nonetheless.Have you had any interesting experiences with fanatical or over-excited fans?
I have, one that I’ll never forget: The SABC
does a tour for schools, where groups get to walk around and check out the sets of their favourite shows etc. I was once walking back to my dressing room from studio and a class full of girls, on one of these tours, recognised me. Excitement is contagious and all thirty or so girls tried to hug me at once, I thought I was going to get squished to death. What is your favourite way to spend your free time and relax?
I’m an avid reader. Any chance I get, I read.Click the icon to visit her Talent Profiler Page!
