Michelle, 29, spent the majority of the year in South Africa filming BBC1 drama Our Girl and it seems like all the hard work has paid off – as some huge Hollywood directors are keen to snap her up!

Impressed by her acting abilities, determination and desire to learn, Michelle has been branded a “belter” after making a hugely positive impact on the set of the gritty war drama as army medic Georgie Lane.

Her stunt coordinator has even admitted that she's better than the likes of huge Hollywood actress Charlize Theron.

Stunt coordinator Paul Pieterse told The Sunday People: “Cape Town is a hub of new movies and people come here from the US to scour for new talent. There’s a lot of big money being spent here.

“Michelle has now shown her diversity in Our Girl 2. Can her looks and body match up to Hollywood’s women? Absolutely yes. Michelle is a belter, no two ways about that, and pictures don’t do her credit.

Continuing his love for Michelle, Paul added: “I can tell you she’s a really big talent and a lot of people in this town are talking about her. We have 15 big foreign movies being made here over the past few months - big stars like Sean Penn, Helen Mirren and Charlize Theron have all been here. Michelle’s going to make it big time, I am certain of it."
