One of the most talked-about actresses in Hollywood today is the South African actress Thuso Mbedu.
The actress’s work in Barry Jenkins’ ten-part epic “The Underground Railroad,” for which she received several accolades, launched her to renown. Her most recent performance in “The Woman King” also helped her succeed.
The wildly successful movie, which is now playing in theaters, is based on the actual tale of an all-female band of African warriors, led by Viola Davis.
Mbedu is now concentrating on anime after realizing her ambition of playing in an action movie with Davis.
Mbedu said that she has connected with a comic book artist who is working with her to develop her own graphic novel in a conversation with Jeremy O Harris of Interview Magazine.
The actress told Harris, “I’m allowing myself to go back to anime again because it’s kind of homework for me.
“I’m working with a comic book artist and I’ll be producing my own graphic novel,” she said.
Mbedu admits to being an anime addict and that “Kenichi: The Mightiest Disciple” is her all-time favorite.
The honorable actress said that when she first began her preparation for “The Woman King,” she drew inspiration from this series.
“I had just begun my preparation for ‘The Woman King,’ in which we performed all of our own stunts. In Kenichi’s tale, he is a high school student who enrolls in martial arts to learn how to protect himself from bullies.
“While preparing for the film, I was fighting for my life and sometimes wondered, ‘What am I doing here?'” Bring me home. I then got a thought like, “What would Kenichi do?” After that, I didn’t go back, she said in the interview.
She recently saw “Tekken: Bloodline,” however she wasn’t quite pleased.
Death Note, Demon Slayer, and Attack on Titan are the three animes she urged people to see.
