Thuso Mbedu joined Trevor Noah for The Daily Show

South African actress Thuso Mbedu joined Trevor Noah for Wednesday's “The Daily Show” interview. Noah previously interviewed Mbedu on the show virtually last year.

The two South African stars discussed Mbedu’s recent role in “The Woman King” and her rise in the film industry.

Noah admired the Emmy-nominated actress throughout the interview and applauded her for “crushing it” in everything she does.

During the interview, after Noah asked her why she had trained so hard for the film when she could have just used a stunt double, Mbedu explained how director Gina Prince-Bythewood doesn’t believe in using stunt doubles.

She added: “Part of my audition for the movie was going through a physical and fitness test to determine whether I’d be able to do my own stunts or not.”

The star recently headed to her Instagram page to share snaps of a breathtaking Gucci gown she rocked. Thuso Mbedu looked like an absolute dream in the maxi silky dress with pleats. The South African-born star rocked colourful short hair.
