Thuso Mbedu hasn't been home in a minute and when she finally touched down she surprised family and friends with a visit.

The actress, who has not been home in more than a year, has been doing the most in America to etch her star power on to the Hollywood wall of fame. 

Thuso pulled out all the stops for the big surprise. She took to Instagram to share her family and friends' priceless reactions. She said the most exciting part about being home was the surprise she pulled off, because it’s really hard to keep something like that under wraps.

In the video Thuso is seen moving from one place to the next as she sees people close to her heart whom she has not seen in a while.

The 30-year-old took to Instagram to share her highlights and joy.

“My favourite part about last week, I was able to successfully surprise my family,” she wrote, before she got into the nitty gritty of planning and executing her ideas thanks to her friend.

“This is love. I wish I could’ve been able to surprise more of my friends but there are so many it would’ve been a whole weekend affair. But you know I love you and I will see you soon.”

The International Emmy Award-nominated actress has been doing exceptionally well for herself considering she has been abroad less than two years. She has won her first international award, at the inaugural Hollywood Critic’s Association awards, in the category of TV Breakout Star. Thuso is now set to star alongside Academy Award-winning actress Viola Davis in The Woman King movie.
