Letitia Wright plays Shuri, the genius tech scientist little sister of Wakanda's protector T'Challa, in Black Panther: Wakanda Forever.

Wright's upcoming film Aisha explores themes of loss, and she feels her joy comes from finding projects that will provoke emotion, that will provoke you to think, and to feel.

In Aisha, the human character is facing a bureaucracy that dehumanises her. I managed to hold onto her humanity by listening internally to the voices that were planted in my system

The way that they navigate through this obstacle comes first. For me, it's about telling the truth and balancing that difficulty with people's stories.

Letitia's character Aisha lives with her, and her stories stay with her. It's hard to step away from Aisha and go back to being Letitia.

For me, it was hard to step away from this film because I cared so much about it.

But I tried to find ways to help others and this is one of those opportunities.
