Bollywood/ American actress Priyanka Chopra heaped praise on Mzansi's own Pearl Thusi ahead of her Netflix show Queen Sono

The former Quantico co-stars are great friends and have often hung out together at high-profile events

And just because they live on the other side of the world from each other, doesn't mean they can't keep in touch and hype one another up on social media.

Responding to the trailer of Pearl's new acting gig, Priyanka wrote; "So proud of u @PearlThusi, this looks amazing! Can't wait!"


Pearl took the celebrity shout-out from the Hollywood A-lister -who is also friends with the likes of Meghan Markle and Kim Kardashian - in her stride like the classy lady she is.

"Thank you sis! I learn from the best", replied Pearl.


Meanwhile, Pearl is the first person on the entire continent to star in Netflix's first original African series, which also boasts an All-African cast too!

TV critics from Indiewire hail Pearl's Queen Sono role as a "Jason Bourne-like heroine", Essence labels her a "powerful headliner" and The Hollywood Reporter has crowned her 'Netflix's new queen'.

Pearl deserves all the praise she can get - and then some!
