“I choose to believe that if certain aspects of my life had been different, I would not be this Thuso Mbedu. The hardships and the good things have crafted me into who I am,” she says.
Last year, the Pietermaritzburg born-actress received the highest form of international recognition when she was nominated for an Emmy Award, but she eventually lost out to English actress Anna Friel in the best actress category.
Now the 27-year-old has yet another shot at winning the prestigious award after she bagged an Emmy nomination again for her role as Winnie in local drama Is’thunzi.
Mbedu is humbled.
