“Excellence is a habit,” one Twitter user wrote, while TV host Maps Maponyane dubbed Terry a national treasure.
Congrats to our national treasure of the silver screen @TerryPheto for her BIFA nomination for best supporting actress! #AUnitedKingdom — Maps Maponyane (@MapsMaponyane) November 2, 2016
Overwhelmed by her nomination, the actress, who has been globetrotting after her first movie Ayanda opened the second edition of the RomAfrica Film Festival (RAFF) in Rome earlier this year, took to Instagram to thank the film's director Amma Asante for trusting and believing in her with the role.
