Margot is a creative all wrapped up tight in a neat A-type personality.
Despite this, she is actually easygoing, and with a real love for life,
is always open to new experiences and challenges.
Allowing her passions to lead her, Margot has found her way through a number of different careers and interests over the years. Starting with studying journalism for a year at Rhodes University, she then completed her BA degree at a film college in Cape Town. From acting to cake baking, tutoring to kid’s parties to coffee and finally event and wedding planning, Margot has had the privilege of dabbling in many creative fields.
Her mind is an unusual place, with a true fascination with the dark and mysterious and a terribly wicked sense of humor, she also has a child-like outlook, loving all things magical especially unicorns and Disney. Most of the time she thinks animals are better than people and passionately believes in protecting them and their environments. Unlike unicorns, she believes global warming not to be a myth and is concerned with advocating for the environment and trying to adjust her own habits to have a less negative impact on the planet.
Margot does however love to travel and explore the beauty, history and culture of different countries. She realizes this needs to be done in a sustainable, low impact way and every flight calls for a toll that must be paid back positively to the earth.
Possibly driving her husband nuts (and his wallet empty), Margot’s latest hobby is interior designing their new home. With this comes some serious home organization and the belief that there’s no such thing as too many matching containers in a cupboard…all in a row, evenly spaced, facing the same direction, at the same angle. She’s really not that all that OCD.

Having personally attended acting school for 3 years, this was often the topic of conversation amongst us. As acting students, we were well aware we would be entering an incredibly difficult career, one where success is fairly rare, and with this sentiment we often questioned whether the money invested into acting school was really worth…
