Terry Pheto

The South African flag continues to fly high with leading lady Terry Pheto. 

The star took home the Best Actress actress award at the fifth annual British Urban Film Festival (BUFF) Awards which took place at the weekend in London.

FACES, the movie for which she took home an award, also won Best Feature Film. 

In absentia due to her obligations as a jury member for the 92nd Annual Academy Awards (Oscars) for Best Foreign Film, Pheto said it was a surreal feeling to win the nod. 

“I’m elated that my talent not only continues to cross borders but is recognised amongst the best on international platforms.”

The actress also thanked the Faces team for an amazing experience. 

“It’s an honour to be part of such an important and celebrated project.”

Pheto’s latest Best Actress win forms part of her already impressive catalogue of international awards.

The star has shifted gears in her career, participating in more behind the scenes work.
