The actress has hitherto been known as Thandie, an anglicised version of her name with the "w" absent.
All of Newton's films will be credited with the name Thandiwe (pronounced "tan-DEE-way") Newton in future.
"That's my name. It's always been my name. I'm taking back what's mine," Newton told British Vogue."

The BBC of today calls this "news".  Not in my book. (News On-line Home page). Is there really nothing of more importance?
