What is the one thing you wish you could tell your 16-year-old self?
“You’re going to achieve everything you’re dreaming of. Push harder and take more risks”.
What is the most-read book on your book shelf?
‘On Becoming’ by Toke Makinwa.
How would you define your style?
Action Barbie by day, Glamazon by night!
Has it changed since you have been in the entertainment industry?
I mean, I get to work with some really epic brands now, but, although the shapes and cuts I prefer may have changed, the taste has remained the same.
What are 2 of your favourite must-have brands?
BodyGame for anything fitness and athleisure related, and then YDE is my go-to for those nights out on the town.
What's your guiltiest pleasure?
Series! I can watch an entire season in one sitting. I have a problem guys, haha!
Who would play you in the film biopic of your life?
Oh, that’s easy! Angeline Jolie.
What would the title of your autobiography be and why?
Living in the 11th hour. The 11th hour is a term that is notoriously used to describe the final moments of any given event or situation where change is still a possibility. That’s my life in a nutshell. Never say die, and fight ‘til the very end.
If you could raid anyone’s wardrobe, whose would it be?
Where is your favourite place in the world and what makes it so special?
My mom’s place in Cape Town. It’s where I feel most at home, it’s where I feel most myself, it’s where I feel most loved.
Where is your go-to eating spot in JHB?
Mash! Lol, sorry coach!
What do you love most about JHB?
JHB is designed to make all your dreams come true. In this city, success belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their own dreams. It can get tough to keep up with the pace of it all… but when you do, a world of opportunity opens up. Personally, I’ve never felt more at home.
Which artists/actors/personalities have influenced you the most?
I think the actors that have inspired me and have influenced my work the most are the female action stars in modern cinema: Uma Thurman, Angelina Jolie, Rhona Mitra, Milla Jovovich and Cameron Diaz to name a few. There’s a lot to be said about women who can kick your ass AND look like a million bucks whilst doing so. I also love that each of these women have done their bit to break the glass ceiling of the entertainment industry and have challenged stereotypes every step of the way.
