South Africa’s got talent… and our newest international recruit, Pearl Thusi has finally made her debut on hit US drama series Quantico!


Thusi set social media alight as the loved series was aired in the early hours of Monday morning in the United States.

The talented actress received nothing but love and appreciation from internationally and local fans, throughout the premiere in America and South Africa,

Thusi made headlines earlier this year when it was discovered that she would be taking up the role.

She plays “Dayana Mampasi”… a driven lawyer from Zimbabwe who graduated Harvard at the top of her class and went to to work for NGOs.

“She has a Type A personality, she’s a bit sassy, and she’s still trying to place herself at the beginning of the series,” Thusi teases. “As it goes on, she develops in different ways.”

Picking up six months after the events of season 1, Alex (Priyanka Chopra) is no longer in the FBI, but still wants to achieve what she set out to do and protect her country. When she gets tapped to train at “The Farm,” the CIA facility whittling down potential recruits to the best and brightest before hiring them to become agents, she embarks on a new, much darker path than before…
