Kuli is enjoying playing Mildred. “I love her. She has a carefree attitude.”
The 41-year-old character – with impeccable taste and a love for the finer things in life – loves looking good and never lets a fashion fad pass her by.
“Mildred has an Instagram account which she updates regularly showing off her collection of handbags, stilettos and cars. When she enters a room, she doesn't go unnoticed,” Kuli says.
Kuli, who’s mom to India (25) and Leaun (23), says she enjoys acting “because I get to be someone else”.
The lockdown hasn’t had a big impact on her life, the actress tells us, other than taking extra health measures like wearing a mask and sanitising.
“Lockdown is like my life, I’m always home when not working,” she says.
Kuli recently had a health scare when she felt something like a lump in her breast, but she was quickly cleared by a health professional.
“I had a boob scare. I thought it was a lump and so I dragged my friend Doreen Morris to an oncologist,” she says.
But all is well, and she can't wait for more acting roles.
