This 36 year olds passion to perform and be on stage has been kindled from a young age and it came as no surprise when she chose to take up a theatre performance degree in 1998. Katlego obtained her BA degree in Theatre & Performance (Hons) and Gender Studies from UCT in 2001 and is renowned for stage performances in theatre productions such as Beyond The Veil, The House of Kalumba, The Town that was Mad, Based on ‘Under Milkwood’, Crimes of the Heart (wherein she was the Stage Manager), Occupational Therapy Project, King Lear, The Suit, Miss Tertiary Feel, and Brett Bailey’s opera performance of Macbeth.

She was also voted as one of FHM’s 100 sexiest women in the world in 2006 and 2011 and voted one of Sowetan’s 12 Sexiest Women in South Africa in 2008.
