As the daughter of a ballet teacher, Musetta Vander was no stranger to the entertainment world and debuted on stage at the age of four. Her childhood was filled with numerous dance performances and, shortly after completing school, she qualified as a ballet teacher herself.
After earning a BA in Communications and Psychology, she landed the job as anchor host for an MTV-like television show in South Africa. One day, a visiting American, Jeff Celentano, spotted her on television, made her his bride, and whisked her off to Hollywood.
Her critically acclaimed stage performance in the original South African play Soweto's Burning, about the trials of an interracial friendship in that racially segregated country, provided her transition to the big screen. Musetta has since performed in numerous feature films.
Musetta made a return to the stage, combining both her dance and acting background in an extremely successful adaptation of Molière's The Bourgeois Gentleman.
