Refilwe Modiselle is definitely on the roll. The media personality is reaching international heights, and we are proud of her greatest accomplishments. 

Refilwe was thrust into the spotlight at a tender age as the country's first professional fashion model living with Albinism. She has managed to build a solid career in showbiz and paved the way for her two adorable sisters Candice and Bontle Modiselle in the industry. The trio has a thriving career in the entertainment industry. 

The star has bagged a lead acting role in an International ground-breaking Film, White Gold. Refilwe plays the character of Mansa, a woman who is assaulted and her body parts are sold for Muthi. 

Speaking to ZAlebs about her role, Refilwe said ' I'm excited about this role, I got to share my perspectives and acting prowess, which will help to stop the stigma and victimization against people living with Albinism''.

The film highlights the hurdles of people living  with Albinism in Africa, and is written and directed by award-winning director Bradford. Multi-talented actors Shadi Chauke and Aubrey Mmakola are also part of the cast. 

The film is set to premiere next year January in the UK. The .Modiselle took to Instagram to share the heart-wrenching trailer of the short film. In an emotionally charged scene a buttered and bruised Refilwe is seen breaking down after she lost her arm.

Speaking to ZAlebs the actress couldn't contain her excitement she said, “ I'm still trying to let it sink in, I think when you do the work you are not aware of what you do, until the final product is out. It is a very humbling experience, I have mixed emotions about it but also nervous of the anticipation, when it finally hits South Africa.”

The actress said she is not aware on when the short film will premiere in South Africa.
