According to NEWS SOURCE GUYANA Guyana-born actress Letitia Wright, widely known for her role in the Black Panther movie franchise, will be arriving in Guyana tomorrow.
You know her as Princess Shuri in Marvel’s Black Panther 1 and 2, and have seen her in other box office success films, including Steven Spielberg’s sci-fi adventure Ready Player One. Letitia Wright is undeniably a Black actress on the rise.
At age seven, Letitia Wright experienced culture shock when her family migrated to Tottenham, London, from Guyana. Coming from a place with a strong sense of community, she shared in an interview with Caribbean Beat that living in England was a stark contrast to what she was accustomed to in Guyana.
Minister of Tourism, Industry and Commerce, Oneidge Walrond will meet the star on arrival at the Cheddi Jagan International Airport (CJIA).
In November last year, President Dr Irfaan Ali wrote a letter to Wright, congratulating her on her successful career and more so, her acclaimed role in the Black Panther movie and its sequel.
The Guyanese Head of State also invited the young actress to visit Guyana. “The Government of Guyana would be honored to host you,” he said in a letter dated November 15.
She repeated the role in Avengers: Infinity War (2018), Avengers: Endgame (2019), and the blockbuster Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, which is now showing in cinemas across the globe.
