2018 has been an amazing year for Letitia Wright and she’s ending it on a high note. The young actress recently earned the title of the highest box office earning actor of 2018, according to Fandango.
Letitia Wright got her big break by playing the brilliant princess Shuri in Marvel’s smash hit Black Panther. Many have seen her as the highlight of this film as she provided the comic relief that no Marvel film can go without.
Wright didn’t top Fandango’s list thanks to this film alone. She reprised her role as Shuri in Avengers: Infinity War, and made a brief appearance in another box office hit – Steven Spielberg’s Ready Player One. According to Fandango’s analysis, her films earned a total of $1.55 billion on domestic box office.
Wright had the most perfect reaction to the news. She shared the post with her followers on Twitter and wrote, “just deposit that amount into my bank account”.
Letitia Wright isn’t the only Black Panther actor to appear on this list. She was followed by her co-stars Chadwick Boseman, Danai Gurira, Winston Duke, Florence Kasumba and Sebastian Stan, who makes a brief cameo in this film.
