Black Panther actress Letitia Wright just cemented her status as one of the biggest breakout stars of 2018. Fandango crowned her as the highest box office earning actor of the year.
The role of brilliant princess Shuri put her on the map, and she played it in both Black Panther and Avengers: Infinity War. Wright also starred in Steven Spielberg’s hit film Ready Player One, and all of these projects earned a total of $1.55 billion on domestic box office.
The young star channeled her inner Shuri after hearing the amazing news, and simply wrote: “just deposit that amount into my bank account.”
Despite her enormous success, Wright is still pretty down the Earth, and she’s not letting sudden fame go to her head. “You can easily get lost in what’s happening, because everybody’s like, ‘This is amazing.’ And then you can think in a way that your ego gets really big, but you shouldn’t. I should remain humble, ‘cause that’s the important thing,” said Letitia Wright shortly after Black Panther hit the theaters.
