Despite all the hatred she receives online over her struggles with identity, Pearl Thusi never waivers in her acting career.

Pearl Thusi set to star in international Netflix show

The actress has been tipped for yet another Netflix Original series and this time, her role features in an international espionage tale that takes place in Thailand.

Renowned entertainment reporter Kgopolo Mphela confirmed the news on social media, stating that Thusi joins the cast of Wu Assassins for season 2 of the series.

What is Wu Assassins about?

Considering the synopsis of the show, it’s not unfamiliar territory for the Queen Sono star. Wu Assassins follows the story of Kai Jin, a young Chinatown chef in present day San Francisco, as he twists and turns in his nailbiting encounters with the Chinese underworld.

At the centre of this espionage action is the much sought after ‘Wu Xiang’, a set of deadly ancient powers which Jin encounters, turning him into a super martial arts ninja whose war with the Chinese Triad plays itself out in the show.

Details on when the show will premiere on the streaming platform have not been released as yet. All we know thus far, is that on its return, Wu Assassins will be reformatted into a two-part movie and Thusi plays an important role in bringing a South African connection into the storyline.

The news finally brings more perspective to videos the actress posted of herself training hard at Muay Thai gym in the Asian island.

For those who constantly look for faults to use as ammunition against Thusi, this is yet another hard pill to swallow. Here’s how social media reacted to the news:
