“I don’t judge, but I knew I didn't want to pay rent and chase auditions for the rest of my life."

Actress Brenda Ngxoli is in charge of her life and is living according to her own rules and at her own pace.

A few years ago, Brenda ditched the city life and moved to her rural home in Xolobe in Tsomo, Eastern Cape. “When I moved to ‘lalis’ (rural areas) full time, a local tabloid said ‘ndiwile’ (I was down and out). I knew I had a vision of how I wanted my mornings to be - tranquil,” Brenda says. Brenda said that, while her friends were buying cars and fancy clothes, she was investing in her farmhouse. “I don’t judge, but I knew I didn't want to pay rent and chase auditions for the rest of my life. Who was going to give me a bond as a freelancer?” she asks. Although Brenda still loves acting and travels to shoots, she prefers waking up in the morning to milk her cattle, bake homemade bread and growing her own vegetables.
