Julia is the mastermind behind Suzelle DIY and Tali. Two characters on opposite ends of the spectrum yet uniquely South African and both absolutely hilarious. Check out Tali’s official Instagram account @tali_babes for regular updates from Tali herself!

The ultimate Bishop’s boy boet shot to fame through his YouTube channel where he did stuff like fill a briefcase with KFC burgers, plus by co-creating and starring in Jozi Shore. Anton plays Tali’s soulmate Darren who runs his own real-estate company called Goldprop. He’s a proper oke who loves drones!

Glen Biderman-Pam (Rael)

Everybody loves Rael! He’s Darren’s right-hand man and has been a massive hit with fans. There have even been calls for his own spin-off show! Glen is a Cape-based comedian so be sure to catch some of his live shows.

Stephanie Anastasopoulos (Mikaela)

Steph is Tali’s sister in the show and in real life. So it was really the perfect gig for her.
