Since being discovered by renowned Canadian actor-director William B. Davis during her debut theatre performance of Athol Fugard’s Valley Song, Kandyse has been privileged to collaborate with many talented, generous artists working on a number of deeply rewarding projects.
Best known for playing Anastasia Dualla on the Emmy Award-winning smash hit Battlestar Galactica, Kandyse continues to be drawn to roles that are physically challenging, and offer her the opportunity for creative, as well as personal growth. “Acting for me is about the craft, and more than that, she explains. “It has always been a journey of self exploration and self discovery.”
Between shoots, Kandyse sings, paints and practices yoga. She also enjoys decorating her home and experimenting in the kitchen. She still makes frequent trips back to her native South Africa where she sits on her grandmother’s porch (once her make believe stage as a child during Apartheid) to reflect in awe about the blessings life has brought her way.
