Lunathi plays the character of Benni on the show, a feisty tomboy who has gone under Diamond's wing all in the name of revenge.

It's always great to see new faces on the show as that is a sign of Ferguson Films playing their role in opening up the industry

But Lunathi isn't exactly new to the industry as she's acted on local shows such as iSikizi and Ingozi but it's clear that the public is starting to take a keen interest in her now that she acts on The Queen

But Lunathi is more than just a pretty face on television but a seasoned actress who does more than just act.


According to a Daily Sun interview, Lunathi also lived in New York and worked as an assistant casting director in a number of American Films.

Besides acting, she also has a soft spot for animals and has lent her voice in ensuring that our furry friends also receive the care they need.

What is also interesting about the 31-year-old actress is that she is the older sister to the Mampofu twins - Oros & Prince.

She also has a beautiful family of her own with her partner.


Lunathi is very much into the arts and we have a great feeling that we'll be seeing more of her work on our TV screens in the near future.

Catch Lunathi on The Queen as she plays the character of Benni on Mzansi Magic weekdays at  9pm.
