talking secrets with lee-anne summers

Talking Sectrets - Lee Anne Summers

Drawn to acting from the age of 3, South African actress Lee-Anne Summers defines the moment she knew it was what she is meant to do was while watching Kirsten Dunst in “Spider-Man“. Lee-Anne joined me for a cup of coffee at the One & Only Resort in Cape Town for a chat and I quickly learned that she is a passionate and driven person who is not only an amazing actress, but also a producer, “The nice thing is when you have something that you’re passionate about, you work ten times harder that anyone else“, says Summers. As a local and international actress, Summers is best known for her role in the 2007 cinema hit, “Big Fellas“, but as a young girl, she was involved in productions such Oliver, The Crucible, The Frog Prince and The Hitchhiker in high school. To satisfy her family before embarking on a professional acting career, she completed a degree in psychology and with the blessing of her parents moved to New York City to study acting full time at the New York Film Academy. To make her dream come true and study in New York, she worked two jobs in South Africa to save up and finance her goal. Summers returned to South Africa and worked on a few soaps, including “Rhythm City” and “Binnelanders“, but never lost sight of her passion to be on stage and film.

Looking back, Summers mentioned working on “Big Fellas” and “Little Kings” as a highlight in her career, but she also fondly mentioned her current stage production, “Fat Pig“, producing and acting in the stage production of “Fat Pig” with Colin Moss. “I’m heartbroken for most of the show, and that’s why I’m acting crazy and that’s where the comedy is” she says about her role in the production. “Another secret, when I was producing the Cape Town run of Fat Pig, in the last week I took a witches hat to the theatre and I said, this is the producing hat, when i have the hat on, you can talk to me as a producer when I have the hat off, I’m an actor“, jokes Summers.

Wearing a gorgeous, yet simple dress, Lee-Anne Summers accentuated her look with Nina Jarebrink jewellery, which recently launched in South Africa and stunning Jimmy Choo heels and mentioned Jeffreys Bay as her favorite place in the world. Check out this quick “Talking Sectrets” video with Lee-Anne Summers.

Fat Pig will be running from 10 April – 5 May 2012 at Old Mutual Theatre On The Square, Sandton, Johannesburg – Book at www.strictlytickets.com
