You’ll Never Guess Which ‘Black Panther’ Star Was Crowned the Highest Box-Office Earning Actor of 2018

By now we all know that Black Panther completely dominated the movie landscape in 2018. But thanks to one breakout stars’s appearance in a handful of the year’s biggest blockbusters, she was just named the highest box-office earning actor of 2018.

According to Fandango, Letitia Wright, who played Shuri in the hit Marvel film and also appeared in Avengers: Infinity War, Ready Player One and The Commuter, hit it big with $1.55 billion in box-office revenue last year. But the 25-year-old actress hasn’t exactly enjoyed the fruits of her lucrative labor. So she poked fun at the accolade in ten totally relatable words.

She wrote, “Dope, dope. Just deposit that amount into my bank account.”

Wakanda forever? More like Letitia Wright forever.
