THE SOUTH AFRICAN PEARL SHINES ABROAD

ACTOR SPACES | THE SOUTH AFRICAN PEARL SHINES ABROAD

From Kalushi to Blue Mauritius and now Quantico.

Born Sithembile Xola Pearl Thusi in Kwandengezi , KZN.

Thusi’s stars are definitely well aligned. The Artistic Gods are on her side.

After scoring a leading role in the movie ‘Kalushi: The story of Solomon Mahlangu’ portraying Brenda Riviera – Solomo’s girlfriend, Thusi recently shot the international heist film ‘Blue Mauritius’ playing Makeda.

The mother of one is currently on set in new York shooting season two of the American series ‘Quantico’ where she plays the role of Dayana Mampasi, an A-grade lawyer who graduated top of her class at Harvard. She joins the series stars Priyanka Chopra, Jake McLaughlin, Aunjanue Ellis, Yasmine Al Massri, Johanna Braddy, Blair Underwood, and Russell Tovey.

Beyond being a model, television and radio personality, Pearl is also a businesswoman. She launched her hair care range ‘Black Pearl’ in 2015 and is putting her WITS Business School Start-Up Venture Course to good use.

There definitely is no stopping her!

We look forward to seeing more South African artists break international ground one actor at a time.
