International award-winning South African actress, Terry Pheto, adds another two international accolades to her already impressive resume, after winning big on Saturday night at the 4th annual International Achievement Recognition Awards (London Awards) (IARA Awards) in London.
Terry Pheto entered the IARA Awards as the most nominated actor this year and walked away the biggest winner having won the most awards of the night as well as having won in the biggest categories of the night.
On Terry Pheto’s wins, the IARA Awards founder, Helen Imuaphe, shares: “Her passion, talent and enthusiasm is inspiring. I wish her many more giant strides. Enormous congratulations to Terry Pheto. I’m so proud of her.”
Taking home the Best Actress 2017 award for her role in A United Kingdom, and the Best Actress TV / Drama 2017 for her role in the BET Nelson Mandela series; Terry Pheto shares:
“Both A United Kingdom and Madiba portray very important stories. Seeing these stories travel globally has been a beautiful journey. It has been an absolute honour to be in a position to have played strong characters in both roles. Mama Winnie Madikizela-Mandela for example is one of the strongest women I know. I’m in awe of her strength and resilience after all she’s been through. She inspires me to believe that I can overcome any obstacles or challenges in life and still remain human, kind and unshaken.”
Terry Pheto’s IARA Award wins come off the back of winning Best Supporting Actress at the National Film Awards UK earlier this year for her role in A United Kingdom.
As usual Terry Pheto stunned on the red carpet in a Leopard Frock creation by Marianne Fassler. The two have had a long standing relationship where over the past 12 years, Terry Pheto has grabbed headlines and won best dressed at many awards and global events dressed in Leopard Frock.
