Netflix's first African original series, Queen Sono, is now available for streaming in 190 countries.
The series is shot in 37 different locations, packed with a variety of languages and features a lot of local talent.
Pearl Thusi plays the lead role in the six-episode action series as a highly trained top spy in a South African agency whose purpose is to better the lives of African citizens.
Speaking to Azania Mosaka, Thusi says she really worked hard on this project and hopes for season two.
Part of the legacy I want to leave as Pearl is for South Africans to see other actors and personalities from other continents struggle like them, suffer like them, hustle like them and win. People are afraid of what they don't know.— Pearl Thusi, Actress
What is really powerful for me about the show is that the entire ark is driven by women.— Pearl Thusi, Actress
The fact that we are in charge of the narrative is very important and there is a lot of skills transfer happening.— Pearl Thusi, Actress
