Ciku Mbithi


I began my acting career in primary school aged 6. By the time I finished high school, I was a seasoned National School Drama Festival actress veteran. After training at the then Nairobi Theatre Academy with Keith Pearson and Mumbi Kaigwa, I did a stint with the travelling theatre, performing Romeo and Juliet before joining Mbalamwezi Players and starring in many of their theatrical and musical shows. I bowed out temporarily, to raise my family and have recently re-entered the scene with the hit movie “Shattered – the Movie”, directed by Gilbert Lukhalia, produced by Dreamhouse Productions, quickly followed by the new MNET Changes Season III, Episode 5 and Festival of Creative Arts stage shows Nuts, Wakawaka and Over My Dead Body, directed by veteran Mbeki Mwalimu


- I am quick and great at following my directors requests.
- I am able to express emotion and what I am feeling, with ease - I have a good confident posture can make a big difference.
- I am able to monitor my speed and volume with the uncanny ability to project my voice without yelling
- I am great at conceptualizing emphasis to give a different meaning to the same set of words
- I morph into my character thereby having an ability to ad-lib
- I swim, drive and am physically fit for shoots requiring one to be physically fit

Finally, I can confidently say, I am ageless, fearfully and wonderfully made, have a fantastic imagination and have extremely photogenic skin with a great smile to boot.
