Tanit Phoenix Biography
Tanit Phoenix, who is of Irish and Dutch descent, was born on the 24th of September 1980 in Durban, KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa. This stunning woman was interested in extra-curricular stuff from an early age. That is why she began training in ballet when she was just 5 years old. As someone who persists in what she does, the woman danced for fifteen years before saying goodbye to the art. By the time she had done that, she was already modelling. Tanit doesn’t talk about her parents or her siblings in public, and we respect that.

That’s when she made the switch to becoming other things.
Tanit Phoenix – The Actor, The Artist!
We’ve got to give it to this lady because she knows a good exit and takes it when she sees one. Upon deciding to become an actor, she began seeking out roles.
