During the time when TV broadcast music videos were a major cultural and industry phenomenon, South African native Musetta Vander locked onto a most unusual specialty. She became the actress of choice whenever a performer such as Elton John or Rod Stewart wanted someone to silently portray the embodiment of a "dream girl." Never mind that one of her first roles in Hollywood was on the kids' show "Super Force". It was as a music video vixen that Vander became known around town, leading to TV guest star work starting in the mid '90s. There were a few big film projects in the mix as well, most notably the disastrous 1999 TV series movie "Wild Wild West" and the Coen brothers' dazzling period comedy "O Brother, Where Art Thou?" in 2000. At the other end of the feature film spectrum was the role of a scientist in the 2005 straight-to-video offering "Mansquito". Vander has also done a chunk of stage work, first attracting attention in her native country for her performance in a staging of "Soweto's Burning".
