Many were puzzled by Amanda du Pont’s age as she celebrated her birthday. The actress is older than we thought, and her youthful looks have deceived us.
The 35-year-old actress was born on 26 June 1988 in Manzini, Swaziland. However, over the years, she has proved to be a jill of all trades and has since spread her wings in industry.
Du Pont shared a series of videos on Instagram celebrating her birthday with friends at Mr JazziQ’s new joint ‘Vibes on Main.’
She joins a host of celebrities, like Bonang Matheba, who was born in June. The celebrated media personality turned 36 on 25 June.
With a career spanning years, she has quickly become a brand and a businesswoman in her own right. Amanda du Pont has managed to switch the floor from acting to hosting and being that MC we all love to hate.
She had her shot at fame after starring in a feature film, Between Friends, in 2014.
However, her recurring role in Skeem Saam saw her switching the floor to big-budget drama series, which includes:
- Life is Wild
- Loxion Bioscope series and more
