Thando ‘Thabooty’ Thabethe had fans excited when she seemed to be hinting at a Hollywood career coming soon. Is that what it was? A hint at things to come? 

The actress recently took to Twitter to ask fans to call her Lady Thabooty.
On its own, the tweet seemed fairly meaningless. But she also changed her display (profile) picture on the same platform, raising even more questions. 

It was one fan who set off the alarm bells when she suggested that the full title should be ‘Lady Thabooty of ShondaLand’.

For context, ShondaLand is an American TV production company, founded by Shonda Rhimes. The multiple award winning writer and producer is the brain behind many iconic Hollywood shows, including Scandal, How To Get Away With Murder, and Bridgerton

Additionally, she went on Instagram, and shared a story implying that there is some huge change about to happen in her life.

I mean, Hollywood has done amazing things, and it is kinda the mark of a non-American actor or actress to find their way into the Hollywood scene. It is also rather tough to break into, especially for those who do not already have some contacts within the industry. 
This would be an amazing win for the star, to be honest. She is such a talented actress, and what she has been doing with How To Ruin Christmas is absolutely amazing, regardless of the fact that it is a short series and only drops once a year on Netflix. Can you imagine the amazing things she would do in Hollywood? 

Thando has a few people leading the way as far as going international and even global goes. 

Our daughter of the land, Thuso Mbedu, just won yet another amazing award. She was named the Best Female Performance in a New Scripted Series at the recent Spirit Awards. The win was huge, and even we back home felt like we won too, including other actresses like Pearl Thusi
Pearl, too, recently scored big. She starred in the recent instalment of Netflix’s Wu Assassins, titled Fistful of Vengeance. The role was one of her biggest in her career, and she couldn’t have been more grateful. 

The icing on the cake? She received the most heartwarming rave reviews from all the fans that watched it. This was not surprising, though – she completely bodied the role. But what was surprising was that she got the attention of Hollywood icon Queen Latifah, who sent her a video gushing over her, making Pearl weep in a club in Dubai. 
Mzansi’s daughters keep making us proud and we cannot keep calm. We cannot wait to see what the big announcement is that Thabooty is being cagey with. We are sure we will be completely blown away.
