Bio

Greteli Fincham is a South African actress and model best known to international audiences for her starring role as Reece van Rensburg in the Netflix drama series Blood & Water.

She studied for her matric at Stellenbosch High School, where she had an extensive resumé in theatre, winning numerous awards.

She did acting workshops with Ian van der Westhuizen and Lise-Marié Richardson; and accent training with Stephen Jennings.

Greteli made her professional screen acting debut in the recurring role of a teenage version of Annabel (series lead Tinarie van Wyk-Loots) in the kykNET drama series Dwaalster (Wanderer).

She first appeared in the role in Episode 2 of the series, which aired on 15 January, 2019.

Later that year she landed her first starring role in television when she was cast in the kykNET drama series Alles Malan (Everything Malan), a drama set in the Western Cape town of Paarl, which revolves around four generations of the Malan family.

In the series she plays teenage daughter Elani, who discovers she is pregnant. Alles Malan debuted on 9 July, 2019.

Just a month later she had a guest starring role as Jessica on the kykNET sitcom Lui Maar Op, Belinda (Give it a Rest, Belinda), appearing in Season 1, Episode 6 (which aired on 12 August, 2019).

Greteli's international profile was raised in late 2019, when she was announced as one of the starring cast of the Netflix coming-of-age drama series Blood & Water, in which a Cape Town teen sets out to prove whether a private-school swimming star is her sister who was abducted at birth.

The series debuted in 190 countries on 20 May, 2020.

Also in 2020, Greteli plays the teenage version of Sophia (played by Cintaine Schutte) in the comedy-drama series Ekstra Medium (Extra Medium). The working title of the show, directed by Beer Adriaanse, was Bertie se Plek (Bertie's Place).
