In today's world where social media makes it possible for celebs to be even larger than life, and flashier than ever before, it's hard to find grounded stars. However, veteran actress Brenda Ngxoli is not only majorly talented, she's down-to-earth too.
We often see celebs boasting with their latest vacations in exotic locations or dinners in fancy restaurants, but you won't see Brenda doing that.
Despite her massive success in her acting career, this is one star that shines bright by staying simple.
Brenda was nominated for an International Emmy award - something few locals can say.
But Brenda never let her fame and success go to her head. She prefers to live a simple life surrounded by loved ones.
We've seen Brenda on our screens for years and she has grown quite a fan base. She's also the favourite to play Brenda Fassi in a new film on her life.
Brenda also won 2 SAFTAs in her time as actress.
We love that she chose to keep things real rather than be all about what she can show off with.
