Home International London Big win By Actress Terry Pheto London Big win By Actress Terry Pheto Advertisement Internationally acclaimed actress Terry Pheto has once again, made South Africa proud in the world entertainment sphere. Terry was the big winner at the 4th annual International Achievement Recognition Awards (IARA) which took place in London on Saturday night. Her much-acclaimed roles as Winnie Mandela & Naledi Khama won her not just one but two awards. Her portrayal of Naledi Khama in the film A United Kingdom got her the Best Actress award while she also scooped Best Actress (TV/Drama) for her role as Winnie Madikizela-Mandela in the BET Nelson Mandela mini-series Madiba. In the Best Actress category, she went up against international stars like Amber Riley, Lucy St Louis, Stefanie Martini and Kiran Sonia Sawar. For the Best Actress (TV/ Drama) she beat Amanda Redman, Wunmi Mosaku, Stefanie Martini and Niamh Walsh to clinch the award. While she won two awards at the event, internationally acclaimed actress Terry Pheto was actually nominated in three categories. She also got a nod in the category of Best International Actress. Her three nods made her the most nominated actor this year. “It still feels a bit surreal. I was hoping to win one award. Winning two awards was a big surprise,” Pheto told Sowetan after her big win. “Both A United Kingdom and Madiba are very important stories to be told and it has been an absolute honour to be in a position to have played very important roles and to see these stories travel globally has been a beautiful journey.” Terry looked stunning at the event in a strapless Marianne Fassler gown. She said the designer always got her back. The two awards have added to the growing list of international accolades won by South African internationally acclaimed actress Terry Pheto. In March, she won Best Supporting Actress at the prestigious UK National Film Awards for her work in A United Kingdom. Also, the actress has scored several international nominations for the outstanding work she’s doing in the industry. Terry got her very first Black Reel Award nomination in July and what made it so special is the fact that she was up against American big shots in the industry including Sanaa Lathan, Loretta Devine, Oprah Winfrey and Nia Long in the Outstanding Actress, TV Movie/Limited series category.
