Patience lands a role in The Bad Bishop


“What keeps me going and not giving up is staying away from people who always try to disparage me from my ambitions. It is true that small minds focus on discouraging others, while great minds share words of wisdom and knowledge with those around them for the betterment of their nation.”

Patience Chauke (26), who hails from Malamulele, is indeed a versatile young woman. She is an entrepreneur, model and founder of a township-based pageant, known as Miss Angelic. She also has some acting experience, being cast for TV adverts and as an extra for on-screen shows, such as Generations the Legacy, Muvhango, SkeemSaam, Rhythm City, High rollers, Greed and Desire, Tempypushas, Zabalaza and Sestop’la, and this background in the entertainment industry has landed her an active role in the upcoming movie, The Bad Bishop, which is filmed right here in Vhembe. This dark comedy is about a group of misfits, led by a recently released convict, who forms a thriving church with the sole aim of conning congregants.

“I am in fact nailing it in this film, so watch the space!” Patience exclaimed happily.

This lovely star-in-the-making has always been ready to face the world full-on. She says she had learnt early on in life how to deal with rejection and not to let rejection steal her hope and zeal to keep trying. “If you want to make it in this industry, you have to brace yourself for rejection,” she said.

Patience has just started an online-based store, called Patty’s Collections SA, where she sells clothes and personal accessories. Her advice to fellow youths is to stay focused and use an air of persistence. “If you want something really badly, don’t knock on just one door. Keep moving and keep knocking until you have found what you were looking for,” she said.

She added that, in this day and age, young people must have ounces of self-confidence and self-determination. “What matters is to trust yourself; create the kind of self that you will be happy to live with all your life. Make the most of yourself by fanning the tiny, inner sparkle of responsibility into flames of achievement.”
