The actress, presenter, MC, motivational speaker and author of the self help book ‘Comfortable In Your Own Skin’ / ‘Gemaklik In Jou Eie Lyf’ isn’t scared to live life to the fullest, but beware – her positive energy is highly contagious.
Leandie is best known for her role as Ivanka Gouws in the KykNet soapie Binnelanders and also impressed viewers with her dance moves being voted the runner up in the reality show Strictly Come Dancing season 7.
With a following of 128K followers on Instagram and 77 000 followers on Facebook, the blonde beauty makes a positive impact post after post. We love her quirky sense of humour and unique sense of style.
In 2014 Leandie wrote a bestselling book Gemaklik in jou eie lyf / Comfortable in your own skin which was an instant best seller. She also started to host motivational speaking events across South Africa empowering women to be sassy, successful and self-confident.
According to her website, the book includes practical and inspiring ways to come into touch with your body, mind and soul.
Leandie is best known for her roles in the popular Afrikaans soapie, Binnelanders as well as box office hits like Vuil Wasgoed, Jagveld, Klein Karoo and Die Windpomp.
In 2015 Leandie won a Huisgenoot Tempo award for Best Actress in a drama / sitcom for her role as ‘Lea’ in the award winning drama series Vlug Na Egipte. In 2016 she won another Huisgenoot Tempo award for Best Actress in a Soap.
Social media followers are always on the end of their seats to see what Leandie is going to wear next. She’s managed to nail her style personality and always look photo shoot ready wearing vintage dresses and original quirky pieces. She started an online fashion store with her mother-in-law, SkoonMa, and it’s been a great success.
“I grew up with a love for unique and hand made clothing. In a world where most things are mass produced it’s sometimes hard to find fashion true to your soul.”
Leandie married her soulmate, Bouwer Bosch, back in 2015 at the iconic Snowflake building in Potchefstroom. Using the hashtag #123boschmyself, pictures of the celebrity couple went viral on social media.
The two of them regularly post funny videos together and we literally think that true love doesn’t get more real than THIS.
