Most of us, if not all of us, have either seen or even heard of the famous movie, Aladdin and the Death Lamp, which is based on quite a classic story that we never get tired of hearing. Kandyse McClure, being one of the actresses in the film industry, really shows a lot of talent and proves that she has what it takes to make it in the film industry. Surely, we never tire of seeing her on our screens.
Kandyse McClure movies and TV shows are always interesting to watch. She just adds a whole new vibe to films, and we all get excited when we see that she is part of the cast of a movie.
Early life and education
Kandyse McClure hails from Durban, South Africa, where she was born on March 22, 1980. She lived in South Africa with her parents and grandparents until she was eleven and then they moved to North America for three years. She then went back to South Africa before leaving for Canada at the age of seventeen. McClure is of a Cape Coloured descent. It is yet not known who her parents are or whether she has siblings or not. Also, not much is known about her childhood. We just know that she went to West Vancouver Secondary School from where she graduated in 1998.
The beautiful actress will be turning 40 on the 22nd of March of 2020, but age is not a problem for her.
Kandyse has managed to keep her life private for not much is known about her and her husband Ian Cylenz Lee, a musician and the owner of Black Gold Production. We are all in the dark on how the couple met, their courtship, or even when and where they got married. As a matter of fact, many knew that she was married when she mentioned 'my husband' in an interview with news 24. It is also hard to tell whether the couple has children or not.
The actress and her beau, Ian Cylenz Lee, are presently living in Vancouver, British Colombia. We do wish the couple a 'happily ever after' life together.
