This award-winning actress hails from the shores of Cape Town. 

According to Tongue Twisters, “Kim Engelbrecht’s acting breakthrough came about, curiously enough, as a result of her swimming skills. Aged just 12, she landed the lead role in 'Sarahsara', a film based on the true story of a Sudanese girl who swam 35km to salvation. Not only did the budding young actress bag an Italian Golden Globe nomination for the role, but it proved to be an auspicious start to an acting career that would go 'swimmingly' in years to come.”
