She’s been a teacher, a hostage, to a girl next door. Who is the real Mentari?

Confidence and poise are essential to a young woman, as Mentari De Marelle confirms. “Wearing your favourite pieces makes you confident,” says the 21-year-old actress “Also, strangers respect you more when you look well put-together and poised.

“I love beautiful earrings and purses. Earrings make you look sweet, as if you have put some extra effort into getting ready. A great handbag can instantly uplift your look as well.”

Mentari came to the set looking very bright in a simple white tee and jeans. She started her career as a model, so the shoot held no fears for her. She gave us a big smile and spread some happy vibes.

In spite of her youth, Mentari has taken on some challenging film roles, starting with her appearance in Yasmine (2014). She was a girl next door in the romantic comedy Where is My Romeo (2015), before taking on a dramatic role as a teacher of slum kids in Blusukan Jakarta a year later. Then came the hostage role in Merah Putih Memanggil that made her famous last year.

Is Mentari a risk taker? “Yes I think I am,” she replies. “Most of the time I will say, ‘Why not’ to myself, and jump! I am my own woman with my own talents and nobody can tell me what to do. I am my own boss.”
