About Christine Viviers:
Q: Christine, alright, let’s jump in with a deep one – what’s your definition for
Success can mean many things to different people. To me, success is being able to
live everyday focusing on things that you enjoy and make you happy. Even deeper,
success for me is training and working in the tv/film/theater industry, and having my own
space to focus on myself and my relationships. If I have the opportunity to do these

Q: We appreciate you taking the time to share your story with us today. Where

I’m an Afrikaans girl who was born in Stellenbosch, South Africa; and grew up in a

I’m also a Child of God, as it is through him that I got my talent and why I am where I
am in life. Ever since I was little, I always wanted to act, be on stage, in front of the
camera and simply tell stories. My parents raised me with the idea that no dream is too
big, they play a big part in my story. They have always been extremely supportive and
encouraging every step of the way. I believe the reason I was put on earth is to tell
stories and fast forward a few years after graduating with my BFA in Acting at AMDA
and since then I now have the privilege to do that as a career.
What do you feel is more important for an actor, talent or training?

from many others who try and fail in this profession. No matter how talented you are,
training, practice, and hard work make you better. If you look at any notable actor’s
career, they spend a lot of time practicing their craft. The opportunity which resulted in
them becoming a great actor/actress was due to their hard work and persistence, not
