Briefly News recently reported that South African born actress Thuso Mbedu is currently starring in The Underground Railroad in the US and now the game is seriously changing for her.
Thuso is set to star in a new feature film titled The Woman King, alongside Viola Davis. Viola feels honoured to be getting the chance to work with Thuso and said that she's mesmerising. Speaking to Deadline, Viola confirmed the news that she was going to be starring in The Woman King with Thuso.
“The depth and complexity of emotional life, her authentic beauty, and regalness is potent. We were mesmerised by Thuso Mbedu. We wanted Woman King / Nawi to be the vehicle to introduce her on the big screen," she said.
It was also reported that Thuso Mbedu bagged a role in The Underground Railroad, an international production which is due for release next month. As part of promoting the limited series, Thuso has been posting snippets from the production.
The latest video she posted showed her putting her full talent on display. Not only did Mbedu look the part, but she also nailed the accent.
