Actress & Model
Vanessa Vanderpuye is a British born Actress & Model, whose ethnic origin is from Ghana. After receiving her degree in Criminal Justice, she decided to pursue her dream of acting full-time by attending the Identity Drama School.
She quickly secured the leading role in a West End theatre show and made her TV debut as Shakira on the Sky Atlantic Drama/Comedy, Venus vs Mars.
Not resting on her laurels has recently led to a lead role in Bulletproof Season 2, where she plays the wife of Ashley Walters and in the multi-award winning Web Series Dreaming Whilst Black, which culminated in 2 nominations for Best Actress.
After being scouted by a photographer outside Topshop in London's West End, modelling became another viable career option. She had to be patient for her breakthrough as she faced rejection from several agencies due to her 'Body type'.
Determined to succeed she continued as a freelance model securing work with Pantene, IT Cosmetics, Samsung, Orange France, Colgate and McDonald's to name a few.
Being the advocate for hardwork that she is, it is no surprise that she has now landed representation for both acting and modelling.
