British actress Susan Wokoma is set to star in the supernatural thriller The Ghost and the House of Truth. She was named one of BAFTA’s Breakthrough Brits in 2017, and has been pretty busy these past couple of years. You might recognize her from Netflix’s Chewing Gum, where she played Cynthia, Tracey’s (Michaela Coel) sister.
She starred opposite Martin Freeman in political comedy Labour of Love, at London’s Noel Coward Theater, and had a leading role on the U.K. hospital comedy Porters. Wokoma has also appeared in Burn, Burn, Burn, alongside Thandie Newton and Chiwetel Ejiofor, and starred in the comedic-horror series Crazyhead as a demon hunter.
In The Ghost and the House of Truth, Wokoma will play Bola Ogun–a counselor whose 8-year-old daughter goes missing, and frustrated with the police investigation, she decides to take it upon herself to catch the predator. The movie will be directed by Nigerian filmmaker Akin Omotoso and produced by Ego Boyo’s Temple Productions. Fabian Adeoye and Kate Henshaw are also set to star.
