Actress Thuso Mbedu

South African actress Thuso Mbedu was born to be a teenager. She could pass for a 17 year old but really she's 25. No wonder she's been playing teenage roles since 2014 when she landed her first major role in Mzansi's hit drama Saints and Sinners.

In her latest screen persona, she is Ipeleng, a 17-year-old fighter and a hustler on MTV Shuga: Down South.
