During her cover shoot interview with EBONY Magazine alongside much of the other main cast of “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever,” Dominique Thorne explained that acting alongside Angela Bassett left her a little starstruck. “My first scene I shot was with Miss Angela Bassett. I don’t know if it’s possible for you to set the caliber any higher,” she explained. Working with Bassett also made the stakes clear. “It was a very real commitment to telling this story in the best way and executing things as they exist in Wakanda,” she said.
Aside from being excited to work with Bassett, Thorne also highlighted the impact of “Black Panther” in Black storytelling and beyond. “The original already established a safe haven for Black brilliance and Black excellence, and an elevated telling of Black royalty,” she noted.
Thorne herself was awarded U.S. Presidential Scholar in the Arts in 2015 and has a short but impressive resume in the entertainment industry thus far. She first appeared as Sheila Hunt in “If Beale Street Could Talk” in 2018, went on to play Judy Harmon in “Judas and the Black Messiah,” and now has a future set for herself with the MCU as Ironheart (via IMDb). Needless to say, we can expect great things from Thorne in the future.
