She made her Hollywood debut in 2009, starring alongside Morgan Freeman as Nelson Mandela’s Chief of Staff, Brenda Mazibuko, in Clint Eastwood’s biographical sports film Invictus.
The undisputed queen of audio and radio drama, she has been a BBC radio actor for more than 30 years and is an award-winning narrator of more than 150 audiobooks.
