 25 year old actor and AFDA alumnus Noxolo Mathula was born and raised in Durban Kwa-Mashu. She graduated from AFDA Durban with her degree in Live Performance in 2015. Born a natural performer, Noxolo is currently basking in the limelight after landing the lead role of “Lilly” on the SABC show Uzalo - the most viewed television show in South Africa with over 9 million daily viewers.

"I'm honoured to be able to play “Lilly” more and more. It is a challenge that is really exciting, but also a little nerve-racking. I think that they saw the kind of person I am, a bubbly and confident person, and saw that I could do a good job." says Noxolo

Noxolo has since been cast in another role on the ground breaking Mzanzi Magic show, eHostela, in which she portrays the character of “Fikephethwe”.

She has also starred in a few of Mzansi Bioskop shows, namely Abasebenzi 1&2 and Abo Chommee, produced and directed by David Kau and Ibutho, produced by Mthakathi Entertainment.

Aside from acting, Noxolo is also an upcoming musician. She was part of Clash of the Choir, where she represented team KZN with her choir master Busiswa from Kalawa Jazmee.
