The Talented Thandie Newton

21 December 2020
Get to know the Westworld star.

She's charming, gorgeous, undeniably elegant, and brings such charisma and mystery to her character Maeve Millay on the award-winning dystopic Westworld. Thandie Newton has graced our screens for years and has excelled in many dynamic roles. We take a peek inside her life. 

Thandie Newton was born in London. Her mother is a  Zimbabwean princess of the Shona people and her dad is an Englishman.

She is married to writer and director Ol Parker. His screenplays include The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, and Mamma Mia Here We Go Again!

She and her husband have three beautiful children

The oldest is Ripley, and as you can see good looks run in the family. Ripley seems to be following in her dad's footsteps, as she's also a writer. 

You may recognise their middle child, Nico. This super talented young actress starred in Disney's live-action film Dumbo. Nico is certainly taking after her mum in the acting field. 

Booker is the youngest child. Thandie and her husband home school Booker and you can tell he's got his mum's crazy sense of humour!

Thandie is a vegan and was voted PETA's sexiest vegan in 2014. Here she is enjoying a healthy lunch before the Westworld premiere.

Watch Thandie Newton in action in Westworld seasons 1 - 3 from 11 January. The Binge Comes Out at Night on M-Net City.
