Judita DaSilva

Biography

Before venturing into modelling or presenting Judita attended a private all girls boarding school, Sylvia Young Theatre School, Pineapple Dance and the London Music School, all where she trained in dance, music and singing from the age of 10. However, her desire for something more steered her away from that end of the entertainment industry. The experience nonetheless is something she always considers as invaluable because she believes that “when it comes to the arts, more is more! Try as much of everything as possible. Excess is Experience and there is no substitute for that!”

Judita has now been a professional model since the end of 2011. Originally spotted by Vogue magazine a few years ago, she chose rather to spend time working in radio, theatre and as a dancer before deciding to pursue a career in modelling. In a very short time she has managed to feature in an impressive array of fashion campaigns, shows and creative collaborations, acquiring a vast amount of experience along the way.

She is always keen to try new and innovative things and always has an un-dampened enthusiasm for her work. It is largely down to this attitude of hers that she can boast such an impressive portfolio of work in such a short space of time.

In the past year Judita has also taken a fearless dive into the world of TV presenting, splitting her time equally between this and modelling. With the 7 years she spent, when she was younger, training with LAMDA Speech & Drama as an actress and speaker and the year as a part-time student at the famous Sylvia young Theatre School, in time she secured voice-over work in radio commercials as well as acting roles in theatrical productions.

Having decided to commit to working as a presenter, she focused her energy first on her professional training and then on a relentless schedule of freelance projects to hone her ability and individual style as a presenter, one she attributes to having an unabashedly opinionated family and spending many an after-dinner conversation waxing lyrical about anything and everything to do with film and music, where her particular forté lies.

Now in addition to her drama training she also has working knowledge of various television presenting formats for both live and pre-recorded shows. She has also developed somewhat of a reputation for her verbose, off-the-cuff style and enjoys writing her own material to showcase this ability.

To put her presenting style into words, it can be described as energetic, dry-witted and comically cutting … metaphorically speaking, she has the energy of an 80s music video (in her words “the best decade EVER!”) and the wit of 50s film noir.
