Brumilda van Rensburg
Versatile and well known to South African audiences as an actress, Brümilda is also a sought after motivational speaker. She is available for guest appearances and as a Master of Ceremonies.
Brumilda's husky voice, faultless frame and sultry looks, make her the ideal "femme fatale" and yet she's played a nondescript schoolgirl (Grietjie in "Voortreflike Familie Smit"), a bitchy feminist (Annie in "Last Summer at Bluefish Cove"), a rather plain farmer's wife in "Wêreld sonder Grense", as well the frail Blanche in Streetcar named Desire. It is however, her interpretation of the bitchy Adele in the TV series "Wolwedans in die Skemer" that made her a household name with South African viewers.
In the "Binnekring" she played a political journalist and that earned her an Artes nomination, a "Binnekring II" is the result.
The rich publisher in "Ballade vir 'n Enkeling II" followed by Judith, a mother whose baby was stolen in "Stolen Lives" Favourite rolls were PORTIA in the MERCHANT OF VENICE and her DALRO-AWARD performance Antigone.
Two features ("Dancing in the forest" and "Brutal Glory") have been released at the Cannes Film Festival. She was honoured yet again, winning a Vita Award for her work as Marie in "Exit the King" It is however, not only the acting fraternity who appreciate her talent - the public has twice nominated her for the "Most popular SA female actress" award.
