Mzansi’s leading lady and award-winning actress Terry Pheto is well-travelled, extremely intelligent and has a wicked sense of humour. We love her honesty, warmth and humility. We recently caught up with the local beauty who’s making huge international waves in a light-hearted chat, where we got to know her a little better. Allow Terry to welcome you into her world.
I love locally produced content! South Africans have a unique sense of humour.
I’ve realised that I’m a woman in my 30s and you’ve got to love the body that you’re in, otherwise you’ll be frustrated and nobody’s got time for that! To love yourself is a never-ending journey: Terry Pheto.
One of our finest actresses ever to come out of Mzansi and one of our jewels when it comes to entertainment. Terry has had such a wonderful and prosperous journey in her life. She keeps a low and cool life and she is so private that if you don’t really follow her you won’t know much about her.
Terry Pheto keeps her private life out of the spotlight, so we were surprised when she tweeted about her late father. Over the years, the beauty has managed to keep her personal life, especially her love life, from the prying eyes of many fans. Although there have been rumours about who she is dating, none of them has been confirmed.
Born and raised in Sebokeng, the award-winning actress gained much success after her leading role as Miriam in 2005’s Oscar-winning feature film Tsotsi.
And over the years Terry has starred and produced several films and drama series including the Bold and Beautiful, Isibaya, Zone 14 and Madiba as Winnie Madikizela Mandela.
