new faces: January 2022
This new year, we welcome lots of stunning new faces to Sandra Reynolds.
Model and self-confessed animal lover, Anna has modelled since the age of 12 and says "working on set is my favourite feeling". Alongside modelling, Anna is currently working towards her animal care diploma so that she can look after our second favourite species.
How did you get into modelling?
"I started begging my mom for an acting agent after I watched the film 'Harriet the Spy' when I was 8. It blew my mind that the lead was an actor, a spy and able to do something incredibly fun as a job. In the '90s there weren't any talent agents for kids where I lived in Cape Town, so my mum spoke to a colleague at The Lady's Magazine where she worked and I was able to start modelling. I began acting when I graduated from film school when I was 22".
What has been your favourite job so far?
"The most exhilarating job was when I was an extra on the TV series 'Of Kings and Prophets'. It's the biggest project I have been involved in. I was gawking at the massive camera jibs and cranes and rubbing my hand along this painted stone when I realised it was still wet. On the one day, the extras were sat close enough to hear Ray Winstone belting angry dialogue. I was dressed as a slave in pastel pink, nowhere to be seen, but I get goosebumps when I think about it".
Why do you love having Sandra Reynolds as your agency?
"They're very good at communicating with me. They're compassionate, trustworthy and transparent. They have an incredible client base and strong boards to show for all those things, and I love that the team is mainly built of women".
