Award-winning actress, Terry Pheto, has officially signed to a leading US talent management agency, Paradigm, and will join the likes of Laurence Fishburne, Jada Pinkett Smith, Janelle Monae, Ed Sheeran and numerous other A-List Hollywood actors and musicians under Paradigm’s management.
This comes just as she is about to finish filming for BET’s upcoming limited series Madiba, where she plays Winnie Mandela and stars opposite Laurence Fishburne who plays Nelson Mandela.
Since its founding in 1992, Paradigm has established itself as a leading entertainment talent agency, guiding the careers of an elite roster of actors, musical artists, directors, writers and producers.
“Winnie Mandela is a very special role that we identified as having breakout potential when we first read the Madiba scripts several months ago. We are excited to work with Terry to help make her career as important and successful in the United States and globally as she already is in South Africa” said Paradigm Talent Agent, Nick LoPiccolo in a statement.
“It’s a huge honour to have my talent recognised by a leading talent management agency such as Paradigm. I have two international projects coming out back to back and I believe this new relationship will enable me to explore further opportunities international” expressed Pheto.
In addition to the Madiba mini-series, Pheto will also feature in Amma Asante’s A United Kingdom which will have its first international release in September this year.
