Cape Town – Terry Pheto waved the South African flag high on Saturday night at the International Achievement Recognition Awards (IARA) held in London.

The actress – who was the top nominee of the night – took home the Best Actress 2017 award for her role as Naledi Khama in A United Kingdom.

Terry also won Best Actress - TV or Drama 2017 for her role as Winnie Mandela in the BET series Madiba.

The South African beauty was nominated in three categories, the third being Best International Actress 2017. Nigerian actress Nse Ikpe-Etim won the award for her role in Tess.

The IARA Awards recognises and celebrates the exceptional work of extraordinary positive role models who have excelled within their respective industries.

Ahead of the Awards, Terry said that she would be attending the ceremony to acknowledge her nominations.

She added: “I do what I do for the love of the craft, and not for the recognition. However being recognised for my talent whether locally or on an international platform is always humbling and appreciated. Thank you to the IARA Awards for recognising my talent and for extending the invitation.”
