7 Minutes with Jade Hübner
TV presenter on Top Billing, model, actress, MC, entrepreneur, singer, adrenalin junkie, and part-time Bcom student, Jade Hübner is proving to be a multi-talented woman with a dream of taking over the entertainment industry in a big way…
You were born and raised in Cape Town. Stroke our ego and tell us three things you love about being a part of the Jozi scene.
So far, it’s the pace within the work scene as people are very driven and ambitious in Joburg and produce results rapidly. I also love the passion, extravagance and love put into the restaurants as I am quite the foodie. Thirdly, the property/rent price is so affordable, you can live in a much bigger place for the same price compared to Cape Town.
What has been the lowest point in your career?
Some people making incorrect assumptions and being nasty for no reason. Another low was coming so close to an amazing big role in an American film, only to lose it in the final selection process between me and one other actress. But I’m a firm believer that everything happens for a reason, so it really isn’t something that I think about anymore.
How’s it been being a part of the Top Billing family?
It has been life changing and incredibly fulfilling! I’m still grateful every day for all the opportunities, people I get to meet, the stories I get to hear, lessons I get to learn and places I get to see.
What are some of the perks of the job?
Being able to experience things I couldn’t before, and meeting and interviewing incredible people. Three memorable interviews I did for Top Billing include Zikhona Sodlaka; she was the first person I ever interviewed and is someone I look up to.
She was incredibly kind and helpful. Another highlight was Henry Cavill; Because I mean… he’s super man! He’s even more gorgeous and taller in person! Last but certainly not least, DJ Naves and DJ SPHEctacula; we had a ton of fun on our getaway shoot.
Define beauty in three words…
Kindness, heart and selflessness.
Which beauty products can you not live without?
Moisturiser, tinted sunblock and mascara. That’s pretty much what I wear every day.
A slice of pecan pie or a traditional malva pudding?
Malva Pudding – nonalcoholic though, as it tastes way better!
