Zola Nombona was born and raised in Mthatha, Eastern Cape province of South Africa. 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.
In 2013 Intersexions was her first television acting part and she played a featured role in Episode 5 as Shado, Rosie’s quirky and fun cousin.
