Blonde bombshell Bonnie Somerville is known for more than just her looks. Somerville has made a name for herself as a model, singer and actress in Hollywood. Appearing in various big-name films along with some well-seasoned actors, she is definitely not to be underestimated.
On the 24 February 1974 in Brooklyn, New York City USA, Bonnie Somerville was born. She was raised by her catholic mother; her relationship with her father has never been reported, but it is known that Bonnie comes from a very large family, as her mother is one of nine children.
Her mother has said that Bonnie was always drawn to singing and acting, constantly putting on little performances for her at home. Later in life when Somerville was asked what inspired her to be a performer, she said ‘My mom took me to see Annie on Broadway when I was little, and I just wanted to be doing what those other girls were doing.’
Somerville was sent to the Poly Preps Country Day School in Bay Ridge, Brooklyn, where she was a cheerleader, as well as taking part in as many community theatre productions and school plays as she possibly could.
After matriculating, Bonnie went on to major in Musical Theatre at The Boston College in Massachusetts, USA.
At the age of 22 Bonnie was discovered by a modelling scout while at her job as a waitress. She pursued modelling for a short while, before quitting and moving to Los Angeles, California, to try her hand in music. It wasn’t long before Somerville formed a band and found an agent to represent her. Her first claim to fame was appearing on Joshua Radins’s first album as a back-up singer.
“Winding Road” one of Somerville’s song was part of the soundtrack for the movie “The Garden State”, which was a film directed and written by Zach Braff who Bonnie would later date.
Her first acting job was in 1996 as an extra in the movie “City Hall”. The first big role she was cast for was as the lead actress in the miniseries “Shake, Rattle and Roll: An American Love Story” which began in 1999 – she also sang for the soundtrack. The next year Bonnie starred in “Grosse Pointe” before going on to play as Rachel Hoffman, a colleague of Sandy Cohen in the first season of ‘The O.C’.
Bonnie scored a recurring role in the eighth season of the hit series “FRIENDS” as the girlfriend of main character Ross Geller, appearing in seven episodes. For the final season of “NYPD Blue”, Somerville played a supporting role for fifteen episodes as Detective Laura Murphy. In 2005 Somerville starred alongside Hollywood actor Bradley Cooper in “Kitchen Confidential” – unfortunately the series was cancelled after just one season, but that wasn’t the end for Bonnie. In 2008 she starred in “Cashmere Mafia” with Frances O’Connor, Lucy Liu, and Miranda Otto as well as being a guest star in “Gary Unmarried”.
Sommerville went on appear in some big Hollywood movies, such as “Without a Paddle”, “The Ugly Truth”, “Spiderman 2” and “Labour Pains”. In 2010 Somerville started alongside Neil Patrick Harris in “The Best and the Brightest”, an independent comedy in which she played Sam, a character who moved to The Big Apple with her partner and child, where she tries to get her daughter into a very prestigious preschool.
Bonnie started dating actor/director Zach Braff in 2003.
Braff is possibly best known from appearing in the television series “Scrubs” in the lead role, and was nominated for Outstanding Lead Actor in a comedy series by Primetime Emmy Awards, and was also nominated for three Golden Globe Awards between 2005 and 2007. Zach and Bonnie’s courtship was brief, lasting not even a year. Somerville wasn’t reported with anyone else untill 2009 when she came out as dating Dave Salmoni, an entertainer, television producer and animal trainer based in South Africa, specializing in wildlife films.
On the 13th of August 2016 Bonnie posted a picture on Instagram with Irishman Nick Lee.
She is rumoured to be dating Lee since the August of 2015, and since the post Bonnie hasn’t been shy to put her relationship with Nick on Social Media, on holiday together in Venice Beach as well as many posts of the two of them sharing some great times together. For her birthday in Febuary Bonnie posted a picture with a caption saying she had an amazing birthday weekend and she hints at how madly in love they are with each other. However amoungst all the pictures on Instagram there is no hint as to if or when they will tie the knot.
