Our little girl is a movie star!

Last year Cara and I spent a few days in Prins Albert and last month we finally had the chance to see the end product of the project she was a part of… our girl is a movie star!!!

Our little girl is a movie star!

Our girls is a movie star!

It still seems so unreal and I’m still not really sure how it happened. But I can’t take any credit. This girl is our superstar. And now, Cara van der Westhuizen, you are a movie star!

Liewe Kersfeesvader

Liewe Kersfeesvader is an Afrikaans movie that will be hitting the big screens on 17 November 2017! And we will be booking out the whole cinema.

Liewe Kersfeesvader

A teenage beauty queen is flung into swift adulthood when her father assumes a new identity: Father Christmas. Juggling a crazy father, an impressionable kid brother and a growing romance, Nonnie has to redefine her own meaning of family. – www.imdb.com

The role of Nonnie is played by the amazingly talented Mila Guy. There are flashbacks in the movie of Nonnie as a little girl… played by Cara van der Westhuizen!! I am so proud I can burst!!

We attended the world premiere of Liewe Kersfeesvader at the Kyknet Silwerskermfees on 25 August and it was magical. Get ready to laugh and cry – Liewe Kersfeesvader is a must see.

I would like to thank Etienne Fourie (writer and director), Stefan Enslin (producer), JP du Preez (Novo Sound), Milan Murray en Morné Visser. You were all so amazing with Cara, on set and after. And Etienne and Stefan, thank you for allowing Cara to be a part of this wonderful movie.

A huge thank you to Cape Gate Shopping Centre

We would also like to say thank you to the kind people of Cape Gate Shopping Centre in Brackenfell. They spoiled our girl with a massive shopping spree and sponsored her outfit for her movie premiere. Thank you, thank you! You guys are awesome.
