2016 was without a doubt the year of Pearl, getting married to Robert Marawa in addition to snagging jobs as MTV Lip Sync Battle Africa’s host and a recurring role on Americas Quantico, and having her own hair product ‘Black Pearl’, 2017 is actually the year to be focusing intensively on Pearl Thusi.
During an interview with Anele Mdoda on the SABC show, The Real, Thusi revealed that she is not one talk about the work she is putting in behind the scenes for the fear of actually jinxing the whole project, which is why we hardly know the projects she works on, till the material is released.
Apart from her highly publicised role in the Solomon Mahlangu biopic, Kalushi, which was released in November last year, Thusi has filmed scenes for a Kagiso Lediga project titled “catching feelings” which could be released hopefully at beginning of February
To help you wrap your head around this, the film was at point on all news outlets, following discussions on how Pearl had made her film crew strip down to their undies so she wouldn’t be the only one in her skivvies for the sex scene.
According to the internet movie database catching feelings is a dark romantic comedy which follows an urban young academic and his beautiful wife, as their lives get turned around when a celebrate and hedonistic older writer move into their Johannesburg home with them.
She will further be reprising her role on Quantico as Dayana Mampisi, which we hope will lead to more international work for our local star. Pearl Thusi has had quite an interesting journey to her latest casting news, from playing an orphan on Zone 14 to being on Metro FM and not forgetting Isidingo.
