STUNNING actress, Pretty Ncayiyana (24), is on her way to becoming a prominent starlet.

She is in love with stepping into someone else’s shoes and telling stories that touch the hearts of viewers.
Mzansi TV viewers were first introduced to her through SABC1’s Skeem Saam as Ayanda and she has now joined Scandal! on as Phindile.
Phindi is back in the picture, starting a new life in Jozi, employed at Safe & Clean.
“Playing Phindi was exciting and also made me a bit nervous. I love her adventurous spirit and the way she tries to empower herself as an independent woman,” said the actress.
Born in Port Shepstone, KZN, her acting career began at the age of 14 with a community theatre group in her home town.
“I’ve always been in love with the craft. I’m also passionate about education, even though I put my studies on hold when I had an opportunity to act on Skeem Saam,” Phindi said.
She’s working toward a Bachelor of Education degree, and told SunBuzz: “I want to play a role in youth development. I also want to put emphasis on life skills that are often left out of the school syllabus.
  • “My ultimate goal is to have my own school of excellence one day and be known for my involvement in education,” she said. Scandal! airs on weekdays on at 7.30pm.
