Bio

Zola Nombona is a South African actress best known for her role as Shado, a streetwise teenager, in the second season of the SABC1 drama series Intersexions, in 2013. It was her first major acting role.

For Eastern Cape-born Zola the acting bug bit by chance, when she acted as Sarafina at a family friend's graduation ceremony in junior school.

She went on to study drama and acting at Victoria Girls High School before pursuing the trade at Wits University where she studied for an honours degree in Dramatic Arts.

Intersexions was her first television acting part and she played a featured role in Episode 5 as Shado, Rosie's quirky and fun cousin.

Later in 2013 she landed a starring role in an episode of the e.tv anthology series Mzansi Love: Kasi Style ("Sexy.com", Season 2, Episode 3). Her character, Sindi, is a writer, blogger and (single) "it girl" who is idealistic about the internet and communicates through her blog "Sassy, Single in SA". Her co-stars in the episode were Litha Booi and Sthembiso Khoza.

Also in 2013, she had a recurring role as vain, narcissistic and utterly controlling Lerato, who uses her extraordinary beauty to lure and control adoring men, in the SABC1 sitcom Single Guys.

In 2014 she revived her role as Lerato from Single Guys in the spin-off sitcom Single Galz, in which she moves in with her girlfriends.

In 2015 she had a starring role in the e.tv drama series Z'bondiwe as Mafungwashe 'Roxanne' Nozulu, an intelligent, beautiful woman who made a mistake as a teenager that has come back to haunt her.

In the same year she also starred as Kat in the second season of SABC1's Shakespeare inspired series Forced Love.

In 2021 she had a recurring role on the BET telenovela Isono as Zoleka Sigcawu, a high powered modern woman at the top of her field as Head of Production at a sports channel, UltraSport. She dates Makwande (Anga Makubalo) and falls in love with him. Her first appearance was in Season 1, Episode 109, which aired on 5 April, 2021.

On 4 June 2021 she debuts on Generations: The Legacy in the role of Pamela Khoza, Siyanda's (Kay Sibiya) witty, sharp-tongued estranged wife, who is also an investigative journalist.
