As if being half Italian and half South African isn’t enough to grab your attention, Angela Beccaro is also Stuntwoman in-training. Impressed much? She’s got the looks to fit the part and we’re finding it difficult to take our eyes off her.
Meet her as our LW Babe of the Week.
Full name: Angela Beccaro
Hometown: Greenpoint, Cape Town
Day job: Stunts PA and Stuntwoman in-training
Likes: Dancing, good food (trying new cuisines), summer/ being out in the sun, an active lifestyle, animals, adventure, movies and great television (these are great references for the industry I’m in), good reading material
Dislikes: Inefficiency, close-minded/ rude people, the way the weekend flies by, traffic
Special talent: I’m more of a jack-of-all-trades sort of woman
Give us a quick introduction to Angela?
A very relaxed, down-to-earth person that values family and self-care above all. I think it’s very important to nurture a healthy self-image and to treasure those that are important in your life, especially those that are supportive of you no matter your ups or downs.
What type of lifestyle would you say you live?
I live quite an active lifestyle, dependent on my work schedule. I work in the film industry and for anyone who’s familiar with the industry knows it can be long hours and sacrifice of personal time and goals. When I get time off I usually spend it training, relaxing or finding a good food experience.
What type of lifestyle would you like to live or see yourself living in five years time?
I like where I’m at now in terms of an active lifestyle; but I’d love to be able to have a more flexible schedule, or one that allows me to travel the world a bit more. I love to experience and learn from different cultures because it helps keep an open mind, so getting to see more of the world would be the dream.
If you could change one thing about yourself, what would it be?
In this day and age it would probably be to stop comparing my path to that of people that I look up to and follow on social media, or that are living a lifestyle that I’m currently aspiring to. It’s great to use role models as motivation or to aid in goal setting, but sometimes I can be quite hard on myself if I haven’t reached a goal at a time that I thought I would. So I’d like to practice more patience when it comes to fulfilling my dreams.
How would you best sum up your shoot with Epix Shoots?
Shaun is brilliant. I’m so happy we pushed to get a photo shoot done, we wanted to collaborate for a while but I was always busy with work. I think there’s always a bit of hesitation working with a new photographer, but Shaun instantly makes you feel comfortable and I found myself laughing at a lot of the cues he had while I was in front of camera.
What is the best thing about living in Cape Town?
I love Cape Town because we have a bit of the best of everything. The ocean, mountain ranges, beautiful weather/ climate and there is so much to do and to see. I like a lot of options of things to do on a day off, so Cape Town ticks all the boxes.
What countries have you traveled to and which have been your favourite?
I’m half Italian and we’ve got relatives there, so I’ve been to Italy a few times to visit. I’ve also been to Switzerland, Poland, Holland and Namibia. Amsterdam was definitely a highlight – we did a cycle tour along the canals on New Years for a light/ art show and that was magnificent. I would still have to go with Italy being my favourite though, the food, the culture and the country’s sites are just exquisite.
What view would you most love to see out your bedroom window every day?
Beach view, palm trees, tropical waters! Basically an island-life view.
Given the option to go on a winter holiday or a summer holiday. Which one would you take?
I would like to go on a summer holiday next. Most of the holidays I’ve been on (especially those out of the country), have been during winter. A cold, snowy experience is definitely a must, but I have always wanted to go on a tropical island adventure – so that would be first pick.
What are you looking forward to most in 2019?
Much more self-growth and exploring of opportunities. I made a shift in my career at the beginning of 2018 and I want to see where my current path takes me.
What do you like to do with your downtime?
I like to do yoga or long stretching routines if I’m not training (cardio/ strength training), otherwise an outing to the beach or park to tan. Sometimes simply chilling at home with a good book or movie on the TV to unwind.
What one thing can you not live without?
Massage! I like to treat myself to a massage now and again when the body feels run down. I try to make more of a regular thing of it, because massage is so good for circulation and helps me to detox the body. Besides, who doesn’t like being pampered?
What’s the first thing that comes to mind when we mention:
Wanderlust?More traveling needed.
Pet peeve?People that chew/ swallow food loudly.
