The Days of Our Lives: Carla Bonner, Actor and Author

Carla Bonner

In The Days of Our Lives we meet some fascinating and creative folk and take a look at what their typical day holds. Far from being about the mundane, it is a celebration of what it takes to juggle the day-to-day with big ideas, a successful business and a full home life. It’s about keeping all the balls in the air – what is important and what isn’t. It’s about (extra)ordinary moments that fill our every day.

This week we get a glimpse into a day in the life of Carla Bonner. While you probably already know her as Steph Scully from Neighbours, there are many more strings to Carla’s bow.  She is the author of Hook, Line and Sink Her, has a blog and is a passionate anti-bullying advocate. Carla is also a mother of two (Harley and Jyhe) and involved in several charities including the Women’s Cancer Foundation.

This is a day in Carla’s life.

A juice a day consisting of kale, ginger, carrots, cucumber and beetroot – a good contribution to optimum health.
