Pearl Modiadie’s desire to be on TV as a presenter, was stirred as a teenager when she would appear on various soapies as an extra or as a studio audience member on shows such as YOTV, Jam Alley and the Felicia Mabuza-Suttle Show. She learnt to understand the importance of her role as an extra and audience member, but her heart was fixed on being on set, talking into the camera. Inspired by Felicia Mabuza-Suttle and her talk show, as fate would have it, Pearl Modiadie now hosts one of the most watched local talk shows in the country.
