Tumi Morake Gets Real On Her Role In ‘Mr Bones 3: Son of Bones’

It remains one of the most successful film franchises in South African history and fans flocked to cinemas around the country this weekend to watch the third instalment of the Mr Bones series.

Dubbed ‘Son of Bones’, the new film begins at the turn of the last century, when we witness (flashback) the burying of the Kruger millions by two Boer soldiers, who then kill each other through idiotic greed, leaving the Kruger millions hidden in a graveyard in Kuvukiland. Now, in the present, a scrawny businessman named Alvin (Sans Moonsamy) and his Texan engineer partner named Jack (Daniel Janks), together with their beautiful guide, Gabrielle (Jay Anstey) are plotting to mine for oil in the pristine land which would leave it an oily mess. Bones and Mathambo must devise a way to outsmart the opinionated Westerners. Of course, as their plan unfolds, so do many other unexpected twists and turns, with hilarious effect.

Comedian Tumi Morake stars in this exciting new chapter in the series. She stars as the hilarious Mamba – one of the few Kuvukis who travels outside of Kuvukiland. We chat to the star about her new role and being part of such an exciting franchise.

How did your role in Mr Bones 3: Son of Bones come about?

My agent asked me if I was interested in auditioning for the new Mr Bones and I was like “ are you kidding me? A chance to work with the legendary Leon Schuster and “Shorty” on a legendary franchise? Yes! What appealed to you about the role? Playing a bad guy and also working in slapstick comedy was the sugar in the deal. Knowing I would get to play opposite Leon and cause a little chaos sounded like fun.

What was it like working with Leon Schuster?

Working with Leon was such a hoot! He is like a kid in a candy store on set, there’s always a joke or a prank coming. Watching how meticulous he is with the comedy – from choices in words and sounds to how the comedy works physically in a scene – was like being in a comedy masterclass.

Tell us more about your character.

Mamba is one of the few Kuvukis who travels outside of Kuvukiland. She is also an entrepreneur, cynic, crook and utterly charming. She and Bones have a past with each other, which is hinted at, but never disclosed. It is Mamba who sells out her people to the illegal oil drillers. She can also handle herself in a physical brawl. Is there anything you have in common with her? Yeah, I am also not afraid to take men on – hahaha!

Why should South Africans watch Mr Bones 3: Son of Bones?

We need a laugh. A good one. A laugh we can share with the kiddies even. Let’s revive SA cinema by filling those theatres.

Mr Bones 3: Son of Bones is now showing in cinemas nationwide.
