This week 21 Icons celebrates the 21st and final icon of its second season: Sandra Prinsloo, the doyenne of South African stage and screen. The 21 Icons portrait features Prinsloo kissing a shadow projected on to a white background.

“I was a ballet dancer from a very early age and I remember that I occasionally ushered at the Breytenbach Theatre in Pretoria when I was in high school. That’s the first time I came into contact with professional stage acting, but I never thought I’d be an actress. It wasn’t something I ever thought I would do. I think I was far too shy in those days to ever think I could be an actress. So it wasn’t like I had this great big burning passion to become an actress, not at all. I preferred an academic life, in a way. When I went to university, I thought that was going to be what I was going to do.”
