There’s something special about a beautiful woman starring opposite one of Hollywood’s most talented acts, which makes one forget the A-list star and ask who's that girl?
Well, the beautiful girl is Gugu Mbatha-Raw, and she stars opposite Kiefer Sutherland in the much anticipated new drama Touch, which starts on M-Net tonight at 21:30.
The British actress may not yet be a household name, but her star is rising, and we’re sure you may have seen her in quite a few productions on DStv.
She may be British, but Gugu has strong African roots. Her real name is Gugulethu. Her mom Anna is a British nurse and her father, Patrick a South African doctor.
Gugu was the envy of many women, when she was seen in the M-Net Series drama Undercovers as Boris Kodjoe’s wife.
She was cast opposite fabulous Oscar-winning pair Tom Hanks and Julia Roberts in Larry Crowne, as the free-spirited student, Talia Francesco.
Gugu became a household name in her country, for her roles in the TV series Doctor Who and Spooks (renamed MI-5), both these shows are currently being screened on BBC Entertainment, channel 120.
Watch Gugu in action and see her star power rise as she takes on the role of Clea Hopkins in Touch, starting tonight on M-Net at 21:30.
