Nelly Beatriz Bonnet (11 December 1930 - 19 February 2020) was an Argentine film and television actress and comedian.
Beatriz Bonnet was born on 11 December 1930 to a single mother. At 15, Bonnet married a man named López Verde, but the couple split a year later. She moved to Buenos Aires, where she studied dance, singing, and acting. While working at a candy shop, Bonnet was recruited by Pedro R. Bravo to act in Mansedumbre, the first film to be shot in Tucumán Province. In mid-1951, she joined the staff of the Cinematographic Institute of the National University of Tucumán, at that time being funded by the Argentine government.
Bonnet entered the Institute of Modern Art in Buenos Aires and was hired by theatre director Francisco Gallo to perform in comedies in the Astral Theater. She took classes with Hedy Crilla .
On television, Bonnet made her debut performing in operettas on Televisión Pública Argentina's Channel 7. She was the replacement actress for Rosita Quintana in a production My Fair Lady, performing so well in one day that the audience cheered for her and indefinitely replaced Quintana. Bonnet would also play in TV musical comedies such as La dama del Maxim's, Descalzos en el parque, and Mame.
