Megan Bronwinne Alatini (born September 29, 1976) is a South African born New Zealand pop singer, actress and television personality. She rose to fame in New Zealand on the reality television series Popstars. She went on to become a member in the girl group TrueBliss. She is also known for portraying the part of Java in the popular sci-fi series The Tribe. Later she gained more exposure appearing as a judge on New Zealand Idol.
Her family encouraged her to audition for Popstars in early 1999, and, much to her astonishment, she made the cut and eventually became a member of TrueBliss, the first band ever to be formed out of Popstars. The five girls went on to cut a #1 single followed by a #1 album, before they (unofficially) parted in late 2000.
In February 2000 Megan married her long-time boyfriend Pita, who had proposed to her on her 24th birthday. She also formed a singing group with her sisters and made various singing appearances all over New Zealand throughout the years. In late 2001, she recorded several songs with her sisters, some of which have been released on the Abe Messiah: New Edition album.
Megan has also enjoyed a lively career as an actress. She started off with guest stints on Hercules and Young Hercules. Her actress sister Meryl Cassie helped her and her younger sister Monique land parts as core characters in The Tribe. In addition, she played Dr. Leggz in the wacky comedic drama series Atlantis High. Soon after filming ended, Megan gave birth to her second daughter named Tiara. In 2005, she delivered her first son, Trey.
On May 12, 2006, it was announced that Megan had accepted the offer of becoming a judge on the panel of the forthcoming third season of New Zealand Idol. In 2007, Megan appeared on the third season of Dancing with the Stars in New Zealand, where she placed runner-up.
In mid 2008, along with Pita and her 3 children, she moved back to Japan so he could play rugby union. They visit New Zealand often.
