Actress Bonnie Mbuli is breaking boundaries and taking the SA talent across the world as she just scored a role in the highly anticipated UK drama series Noughts and Crosses. The series focuses on the first book in the award-winning Malorie Blackman series. The story follows childhood friends Sephy Hadley (a Cross) and Callum McGregor (a Nought), who end up falling for each other but, divided by race and mounting social unrest, are forced to keep their forbidden relationship a secret. It takes place in an alternate history, where black “Cross” people rule over white “Noughts”.
Noughts & Crosses will air on BBC One on Thursday 5 March. All six episodes will drop on BBC iPlayer just after. Much excitement arouses as the fans pour their congratulatory messages on twitter as well as on Instagram.
The cast was revealed this week, with Bonnie among the main character as she will be acting as JASMINE. She will star alongside Peaky Blinders actor Jack Rowan, Masali Baduza, The End of the F**king World star Josh Dylan, Kiki Brimah and Peep Show‘s Paterson Joseph.
The official trailer was released last week, shows Bonnie as part of a group hugging another character, bringing more anticipation and excitement to all fans.
