Pasi has always been praised for her beauty and youthful looks. She is now in her early 30s which is a fact that many people find out hard to believe. One could be forgiven for thinking that Pasi is in her 20s. The same could also be said about her younger sister.
Pasi, who is the founder of Gorge restaurant in Sandton has been on e.tv’s drama Scandal! for almost a decade giving her fans the content that they have signed up for.
Opening up to Kaya FM about her rise to stardom some years back, the star revealed that her journey to the top hasn’t been smooth sailing.
“The first day, we came with a train because I couldn’t afford a bus and it’s like 9 or 10 hours just sitting there. A lady was sitting next to me and the baby was crying, the baby pooped and it was just a long trip.” She said.
“We didn’t know which taxi to get from where, because there was Noord and then there was Bree, I didn’t want to look around because people were going to be like; ‘Aah this girl, where is she from?’ So it was so interesting.”
Also, opening up about how she landed the role of Dintle on Scandal! Pasi had initially auditioned for a different role which she didn’t get.
“And then Scandal, I went to go audition for Gontse (there’s a character called Gontse)…and I didn’t get it, and I said: ‘You know what? it’s fine’ ’cause a week before I went to go audition for a character I got a callback but I didn’t get the part and I was so mad that I even stopped watching Rhythm City.” She said.
“Two weeks after they called me, and I’m thinking I’m going back to audition for Gontse, not knowing that it’s a new audition all together…immediately when I left Sasani [studios] I get a call…they tell me I got the part…they didn’t even have a name for that character, they were like, this is Dintle, there’s no other.”
