Saskia van Ryneveld


I am a London-based South African actress.

I would love to help you out with your scene whether for a class, audition or just to practise. We'll get it off the page and delve into the layers you can bring out. I have a background in psychology so I really enjoy breaking down characters and working on scene analysis.

I trained for 4 years in South Africa and then studied acting for camera in Madrid. I've since worked in the UK and Spain on a variety of projects including touring TIE, Shakespeare, a one-woman show, and recently my first feature film. I am currently training with the London Meisner Company.

If you'd like to contact me to schedule I'm here:

Looking forward to meeting you!

London-based South African actress with an EU passport. I've worked in the UK and Spain on a variety of projects from touring TIE to Shakespeare and a one-woman show.

I trained in South Africa doing a 4 year, Honours degree in Performing and Visual Arts with majors in Performance and Physical Theatre. I have since completed various courses including screen acting with Assumpta Serna and Scott Cleverdon in Madrid, Stanislavski scene analysis with Seb Harcombe at The Actor's Center in London and I am currently training with The London Meisner Company.

I am an accomplished horse-rider and latin dancer (salsa and tango) and I speak fluent Spanish, good French and basic Afrikaans.

I am good with accents including speaking Spanish with a French accent!

I also hold an MSc in Psychology with a dissertation on dissociation and empathy in actors as a result of their process.
