Lara Lipschitz Chin Up

Former YoTV star, Lara Lipschitz has made South Africa proud when she won the Best Actress award for her web series Chin Up at the 4th New York Web Fest. Lara and co-producer Devin Toselli were the first ever South African finalists at the web festival.

The series started almost exactly 4 years ago Lipschitz tells the Argus.

“The first episode was published on YouTube on the 19th of November 2013. It started as a once off video just to be creative and proactive. I love comedy and I wanted to make something that would showcase that side of me,” she explained.

Lara has featured in a number of South African soapies including Isidingo and has also acted alongside headline Hollywood stars such as Idris Elba and Daniel Radcliffe.

I’m so excited and honoured. The standard of all the nominees was so high. It’s incredible and so validating to know that South Africa can compete internationally. It’s a real dream come true.” – Lara Lipschitz said.

“Make your own work and put it out there. The future for TV is online. Netflix and showmax are proof of that. The internet makes the world a lot smaller and more accessible. Stop waiting for something to happen” – Lara told People Magazine in an interview.
