Guyanese-British actress, Letitia Wright, best known for her role in the popular films, ‘Black Panther’ and Black Panther: Wakanda Forever,’ on Monday visited EdYou FM and received a hearty welcome.

The international star migrated to London, United Kingdom, when she was just eight years old, but has always acknowledged her Guyanese roots.

Wright was greeted with loud cheers and bright smiles from EdYou FM’s team. The Black Panther star participated in an interview on EdYou FM’s Women Empowerment programme and interacted with the station’s staff. Wright says her main focus is on the youths and children.

The young actress captivated the hearts of thousands around the world after playing the role of ‘Princess Shuri’, a young scientist and then the new ‘Black Panther’ in the blockbuster films Black Panther and Black Panther: Wakanda Forever respectively.

Shortly after part two of the movie was released, Guyana’s President, Dr. Irfaan Ali, wrote the actress and congratulated her on her success and role in the movie. He also invited Wright to visit her homeland.

The star, who arrived in Guyana on Friday, has already visited many sites across the country, including the majestic Kaieteur Falls. She has also been interacting with young people, including students from across the country including her old school Patentia Primary.
