Letitia Wright, one of the stars in the hit Marvel movie Black Panther surprised journalists with her recent tweet.
Letitia rose to fame after appearing as ‘Shuri’ in the high grossing films “Black Panther” and “Avengers: Infinity War”. But even with all the success, she is never ashamed of her faith. She has always been vocal about her faith in God. That’s why it disappointed her when journalists removed her faith from interviews.
In a report from Fox News, it said she wrote in a tweet, “It’s super cute when journalists/interviewers for magazines leave out the massive part where I give God the glory for the success/achievements in my life.”
Then she ended the tweet with “Haha I still love you and God will still be praised.”
The Harper’s Bazaar identified Letitia as one of the “Women of the Year”. However, the article never mentioned her faith and the role God has in her life.
During her speech in the BAFTA (British Academy of Film and Television Arts) “Rising Star” Award, she boldly said, “A few years ago, I saw myself in a deep state of depression, and I literally wanted to quit acting. The only thing that pretty much pulled me out of that was God, my belief, my faith, my family, and an email from BAFTA saying they wanted me to be a part of the BAFTA Breakthrough Brits, and I was like, ‘Let me try again.’”
She never hesitated to credit God publicly for all the success she has achieved.
Letitia Wright and Depression
Also, in an interview with Hollywood Reporter, Letitia revealed she was suffered from depression.
According to the article, her faith was sparked by a Bible Study. The article wrote, “it was faith that rescued her from this ‘very dark place,’… Immersing herself in Christianity, she found her equilibrium. Acting, she could take or leave; she turned down a film with Nicole Kidman to focus on her rehabilitative journey. ‘I wrapped it up and was done with it, happy to do anything that was more chilled. But that’s not the way God had it with me,”” she said.
Letitia then continued saying how God guides her in making decisions especially with her career.
“I pride myself on keeping it the same as when I came into acting. To not just change the lane and take everything, just because it may have a big name or a big budget. Am I right for this part? Is this what I should be playing? If something feels off in my spirit, I know that’s God’s way of saying, ‘You shouldn’t do that.'”
It is very evident how much Letitia values her faith. She isn’t afraid to be a Christian in Hollywood and she won’t let others dismiss her faith for anything.
