“Thuso Mbedu is a South African actress with a reel of work that speaks of a reputable performer on the ascent. Since winning a Safta award for Best Actress in a TV Drama, Is’Thunzi, Mbedu is adamant about growing her global presence. Her starring role in The Underground Railroad made her the first South African leading woman in an American television series.
Mbedu has collected a number of accolades for this performance – three Emmy nominations and one Critics Choice Awards nomination. Currently, anticipation is rising around her leading role in The Woman King alongside Viola Davis and a notable cast.
In 2022 she signed a first-look deal with VIS at Paramount’s international studio. This aligns with the impact she wishes to make on job creation within the South African industry as she expands her experience and artistry by creating, developing, and producing exclusive programming.”
I would advise my younger self to believe in what people see in you.
