Actress and businesswoman Pearl Thusi is currently living out her dreams.
The stunner has been bagging international acting deals and she seems to be enjoying her current success immensely.
The star sat down for a special interview with Netflix during which she revealed how her dream of Queen Sono became a reality.
Pearl said the movie Scorpion King made her realise her passion for acting in movies with lots of action and stunts.
"I'd just come back from New York from shooting a movie I was in called Scorpion King, I realised how good I was at doing action and stunts and stuff like that and I was excited and I wanted to do more stuff like that."
Pearl reiterated that she needed to believe in herself in order to become successful in her career path.
She explained that she had reached a stage in her career when she started planning her own destiny and creating work.
"It's also important to have the right people around you."

The lead of the first ever Netflix African original then took the initiative by showing the creator of the series, Kagiso Lediga, a video of her doing stunt training.
Pearl said Kagiso was excited enough to turn her ideas into reality.
"This is right after I told him that I want to start producing and directing my own shows and what he did is basically took the seed and nurtured it and watered it and found a place for it. Luckily Netflix was in town and I did a vision bored and I wrote there that I want to be a lead of an international series."
Briefly.co.za has reported that Pearl will once again grace Mzansi's screens with her talent in the second season of the thriller.
This series is Netflix's first African original series and is expected to start filming later this year when lockdown restrictions have been lifted.
