10 Days in Sun City.
Amanda plays the character of an “it girl“who warns the other girls in the pageant not to take everything at face value and not to be gullible.
“My character was pretty broken down for me when I was called. So she’s an “it” girl who warns the girls in the pageant to be careful of the traps that come with titles. But I enjoyed every moment of shooting this film because I am such a fan of Nollywood films. I especially love the light-hearted movies because its often effortlessly hilarious‚” she said to Sowetan Live.
"Movies from Nigeria are so different to how we shoot in SA. I was glad to be part of the production and learn how they do things. But the one thing that stands out is how fun it was‚ the reason I know people will love it is because the fun and laughter was just contagious between us‚ and viewers will feel it‚” she said.
Du-Pont was born on 26 June 1988 in Manzini, Swaziland. She is of Portuguese, Chinese, French and Swazi descendant. She was born and raised in Manzini but she later moved to Mpumalanga to finish her schooling at Uplands College.
