Guyanese-British rising star Letitia Wright shines forth as the leading character in Ryan Coogler’s second Black Panther movie. Born in Georgetown Guayana but raised in the streets of North London, Letitia has swiftly emerged as a forerunning actress and recent producer with her latest project The Silent Twins.
She radiates a self-assured, restful and playful poise in conversation with GUAP about her favourite memories when creating the sequel and the importance of vocalizing your love for those you cherish. From our conversations, she unpacks the development of her character Shuri, with whom she shares similarities when discussing Shuri’s growth into womanhood.
Letitia also mentions energy preservation and meditation as key lessons she has learned from her ‘brother’ Chadwick Bossman when on set. She emphasizes knowing where to place and preserve your energy to ensure the longevity of your creative practice – a key lesson all creatives should take away from this conversation.
