Thuso Mbedu has owned the year 2021 through and through. The actress has landed major gigs and in between her big acting jobs has started an impressive collection of awards. Her trophy cabinet is about to be full after she won herself a prestigious Gotham Award.
Just a few months ago, EWN reported that Thuso Mbedu landed herself her second major US role in Viola Davis's production, The Woman King. The show will tell the story of an ancient African civilisation that had female warriors. After starring in a role as powerful as Cora, it only made sense that she continued on a high note.

ZAlebs reports that Thuso won the Gotham Award for outstanding performance in a new series. The star was tied with Hollywood A-lister Ethan Hawke.
