Acclaimed for her role as Maeve Millay in HBO series Westworld, for which she earned a Golden Globe nomination, and her role in BBC One drama Line of Duty, for which she received a TV BAFTA nomination, Thandie now narrates the audiobook of Jessie Burton’s short story 'The Restless Girls'.

What a beautiful soul!

This was a very enlightening interview with a woman I've always wanted to know more about. She chooses her roles carefully and is not led by the money. I love how she views the world then teaches her children how to live consciously. People like her are becoming a rarity these days. Thank you for sharing, Thandie.

Jeez, what was that?!

I just love Thandie Newton, but I am not sure I understood why Robin Morgan-Bentley has to constantly cut her off and speak over her speaking. It was getting a bit ridiculous towards the end: asking her a question, but then not letting her answer. So much for "oh, it's soooooo important that women have a voice" - duh!!!

Terrible This woman not very bright and it shows

She has zero to say and void of any charism — best stick to a script
