Bonnie Mbuli

Bonnie Mbuli was born in Soweto, South Africa.

She was discovered by an actor’s agent when she was just thirteen years old.  Her first job - shortly thereafter -  was in a television series titled Viva Families.  This was followed by cameo roles in various international productions: Born Free 2 and Cave Girls. Bonnie went on to present several magazine programs for television including Teleschool, Zapmag, Technics Heart of the Beat and Limits Unlimited.

In 2001, Bonnie was cast as the lead role in the hit television soap opera, Backstage aimed at the South African youth market. She was later given the role of Portia in the series Gazlam and afterward as a detective in the series Zero Tolerance.

Bonnie hosted a talk show in South Africa on SABC 1 entitled True-Life, won a role in the mini-series Homecoming, and appeared in two Canadian television series: Charlie Jade (a sci-fi epic) and Scouts Safari (an adventure series set in the African wild). She had a starring role in Home Affairs for Penguin Films: a popular thirteen-part series about the lives of five very different women.

In 2015, Bonnie starred opposite Sir Kenneth Charles Branagh as police woman Grace Mthembu in the popular British series Wallander.

Bonnie came third on M-Net's popular television show, Survivor Maldives - "Celebs vs Plebs". On Survivor, this beloved star came across as a positive and nurturing soul and with a strong mental spiritual and physical backbone.

After a three year stint as host on the South African lifestyle show Afternoon Express which has one of the largest viewerships in South African television, Bonnie returned to the small screen with a bang starring in Season 1 and 2 of BBC One’s Noughts and Crosses where she plays the formidable Jasmine. On South African television, she currently stars in Season 2 of Mzansi Magic’s riveting political drama, The Republic.
