Letitia Wright Is on Her Way to an Oscar, if She Gets Her Way (VIDEO)

EBONY caught up with Black Panther star Letitia Wright on the Avengers: Infinity War premiere red carpet, where she opened up about the role that changed her career and where she hopes to be in the next 10 years.

“It pushed me in a way that I have to be calculated in my decisions,” Wright said of her role, Shuri, when asked how it has affected her moves in Hollywood. “I still have a lot to prove within the industry as a young person in the Marvel Universe. … I’m just a normal person as well so I’m not going to let that change me.”

As for the where she hopes to land in a decade, the talented beauty plans to make major moves both behind and in front of the camera.

“I would love to be producing movies, acting in more movies and doing projects that are Oscar-worthy … have kids, be married, all that, being a normal human being as well, balancing it all out.
