About Thandiwe Newton
You’ll know Thandiwe as the star of dozens of blockbusters from Hollywood action movies to films that will have you thinking for months. She’s an award-winning actor with a degree in social anthropology from Downing College, Cambridge.
But, haven’t you spelt her name wrong?
The answer is that we all have been for spelling Thandiwe’s name wrong for 30 years. It was never Thandie.
‘The actress, whose full name is Melanie Thandiwe Newton, said her name was misspelled in the credits to her first film in 1991, Flirting.
"That's my name. It's always been my name. I'm taking back what's mine," Newton told British Vogue.’ (source)
Is Thandiwe Newton vegan?
Yes, it appears that the star is (or at least was) vegan. In an interview in 2018 she ‘credits co-star Woody Harrelson for inspiring her to switch to a vegan diet.’ (source)
We’ve no idea if she still is plant-based, but we sure like the idea of it.
