The pandemic has also helped us realise how one can take quality time with your favourite people for granted and you never know when it might be the last time you see someone.

Thuso Mbedu has been securing the bag in the US and has made South Africans proud with her incredible acting in the Emmy-nominated series, 'The Underground Railroad'. She has even secured a role in a new project where she will be starring alongside Viola Davis.

But after spending many months overseas, working hard and not being able to see the people she loves most, she was able to return to SA and have a long-awaited reunion.

Hopefully, Thuso will be able to spend some serious quality time with her friends and family before she sets off to another glamourous Hollywood set.

In the meantime, we'll be spending the day calling all our loved ones to tell them how much we miss them.
