Bonita Friedericy, a thirty-year veteran actress in television, film and theatre, is perhaps best known for her role as General Diane Beckman on Chuck, appearing throughout its five-season run. Bonita has appeared in nearly 70 television series including Preacher, Impastor, American Crime Story, How to Get Away With Murder, Veronica Mars, The West Wing, Star Trek: Enterprise, The Practice and Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Her film credits include Paranormal Activity 3, House of Sand and Fog, Christmas With the Kranks, Akeelah and the Bee and Madtown.
Bonita currently appears as Nana in the series Dwight in Shining Armor. She has been awarded multiple times for performances in LA based theatre and is a proud recipient of the (now defunct) Natalie Schafer Award for Best Emerging LA-Based Comedic Actress. Bonita has appeared in countless commercials, and she is one of the leads (she plays the legless anti-Nazi saboteur!) in the celebrated motion-capture video games Wolfenstein: The New Order and Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus. She is blissfully married to actor John Billingsley, with whom she travels to conventions around the world (also blissfully). They reside in Los Angeles, they read a lot, they cheer for the Dodgers, and they volunteer to help the hungry and the homeless in their community through their work with the Hollywood Food Coalition.
