Terry Pheto took home the Best Actress award for her role in the movie FACES at the fifth annual British Urban Film Festival Awards.
The flick also won two other awards at the festival in the categories of best actor (won by British actor Aki Omoshaybi) and best feature film.
Pheto took to her Instagram page to express how much of an honour it is to win the award.
Woke up to the amazing news that I won Best Actress Award at the British Urban Film Festival Awards last night in London. What an honour . . . thank you @buffenterprises.
It is not the first time Terry has won big for her acting. In 2006 the star won the prestigious Golden Horn award for best-supporting actress on the movie Tsotsi and she also won the best-supporting actress gong at the UK National Film Awards in 2017 for her role in the film ‘A United Kingdom’.
The Evaton raised actress was not at the ceremony to receive her award due to her obligations as a jury member for the 92nd Annual Academy Awards (Oscars) for Best Foreign Film.
I’m elated that my talent not only continues to cross borders but is recognised amongst the best on international platforms. It’s an honour to be part of such an important and celebrated project.
