Tanya van Graan is one of South Africa’s most widely recognizable – and most celebrated – faces. Throughout all of her global travels and into her marriage, she’s always insisted on retaining her South African surname as a way of flying the flag high throughout the many international adventures that her career has placed in her path.
After studying the Arts and Musical Theatre, Tanya moved effortlessly into the world of stage acting, television and movies. It was then that the fashion, glamour and modelling industries sat up and took notice.
“After starting out in acting,” she explains, “modelling happened naturally.”
Soon, Tanya van Graan became a household name – she was even once voted the “Sexiest Woman in the World” by thousands of South Africans. Tanya has also appeared in various international commercials for De Beer, Vodacom, Palmolive, MTN, Mercedes, Radox, Triumph, Axe, Imax, Diet Coke, Mainstay, Old Spice and Peugeot to mention a few.
Tanya has since starred in numerous local & international feature films.
