Davin Beiersdorf is about to appear in a film and make his debut on the international acting stage. Walking the red carpet of Cannes recently is only just the beginning.


Cannes, France (23 May 2024) – South African model and rising star Davin Beiersdorf (19) made a splash at the Cannes Film Festival this week, showcasing his talent and ambition on the international stage ahead of his film debut on Amazon Prime.

Beiersdorf raised in the coastal town of Langebaan in the Western Cape by his Jordanian mother and German father, has a unique cultural background that shines through in his artistic endeavors.

“Coming from a small town in South Africa I never thought I’d be walking the same red carpet many successful actors have walked. It’s a testament to the power of dreams and hard work. I can’t wait for you all to see the film I Hate Pirates”, expressed Beiersdorf

From a young age, Beiersdorf displayed a passion for the arts, particularly excelling in piano under the tutelage of Marietjie Steenkamp. Both Steenkamp and his supportive parents are credited with nurturing his early artistic inclinations. However, Beiersdorf’s journey wasn’t without hurdles. Breaking into the South African modelling and acting scene proved challenging, prompting him to take the bold step of pursuing his dreams internationally in the United States.

This leap of faith proved pivotal. Beiersdorf landed a role in the upcoming Amazon Prime film I Hate Pirates, set for release early next year. This significant break marks the beginning of what promises to be a remarkable career.

Beiersdorf’s presence at the Cannes Film Festival 2024 provided a valuable opportunity to network with industry veterans and rising talents alike. He embraced the experience with the same enthusiasm and dedication that had fueled his journey from the start.

Beiersdorf’s unwavering commitment to his craft, coupled with his resilience in the face of obstacles, has positioned him for success. With a promising film debut on the horizon and a growing presence in the international film community, his story serves as an inspiration to aspiring South African talents. Beiersdorf himself has expressed his deep pride in his South African roots.
