Bonnie Soper


Self-described "Southern girl" Bonnie Soper found success early in her screen career. She was named Best Supporting Actress at the 2009 Qantas Film and Television Awards after playing a young blind woman in indie film The Map Reader. The same year, Soper appeared on Shortland Street as geeky surrogate mother Morgan Tippett. In 2016 she landed a regular role on high gloss drama Filthy Rich, playing the rich, wild "and kind of crazy" Annabelle. After moving to Los Angeles, Soper was cast as Princess Diana in a pay television film based on the romance of Prince Harry and actor Meghan Markle. Image: photo by Paul Smith

...Bonnie Soper, as Michael's beautiful and blind neighbour is [director Harold] Brodie's hand grenade. And she blows the roof off this film in every scene she gets. Graeme Tuckett in a Dominion Post review of The Map Reader, 21 August 2009
