DON’T you just love actress Jessica Nkosi?
Actress, Clinique social ambassador and Tropika Island of Treasure contestant.
This year is looking great for Richards Bay-born Jessica Nkosi. The striking actress and presenter will be kicking it all off this month as a contestant on the star-studded Tropika Island of Treasure: Seychelles. “I feel like I’m part of Survivor! I’m not sure what to expect, but I know it won’t be easy,” she says with a smile.
The host of local favourite Our Perfect Wedding is also a social ambassador for Clinique, a role that she describes as “humbling, absolutely amazing and an honour”.
Then again, Jessica has always set the bar high. After completing a BA in Drama and Performing Arts at the University of Kwazulu-natal in 2013, she landed her first big acting gig on the hugely popular soapie Isibaya and then Ayeye.
“The thing I love about acting is the storytelling aspect and the way that it allows me to step out of myself and to be someone else,” she says. “Acting has the ability to change perceptions and lives.”
And when she’s not in front of the camera, you can find her curled up in a corner with a book or eating out. “I love finding new and interesting restaurants to try,” she says.
