We are joined in the studio by actress Hildegardt Sikiewicz. She is best known for her role as the feisty and spontaneous ‘Bonita’ in the long-running SABC 2 soapie 7de Laan.
Hildegardt was born Nieuwoudtville, in the Northern Cape. She always knew that a life in the arts was what she wanted why she left the small town life to go live and study Drama at TUT in Pretoria. She found it difficult at first but she had to learn about making sacrifices for what she was willing to pursue, and this wasn’t helped that it took a while until she got her big break-through in the industry.
“I’ve deemed myself my greatest supporter because you have to keep believing in yourself, your talents and your dreams.”
Not only has her career been sky-rocketing but so has her personal life as she is also a mother to her 2-year-old baby boy. She has said that since having him she has become more grounded and that her priorities have changed.
“I wake up much earlier than before, preparation is key, and a good support system.”
