!!Tropes related to her work:

* DoingItForTheArt: "What's lovely is that I'll get sent a small movie, and by virtue of me being involved they get their money, and that's fantastic."
* FakeAmerican: She plays more Americans than her actual nationality, and many are surprised to find out she's actually British. But she gets to keep her accent on ''{{Series/Westworld}}'' in a prominent role, so that might change.
* StageName / MeaningfulRename: "Thandie" is the stage name, due to a typo in the credits of her first film. As of 2021, she has [[https://www.bbc.com/news/entertainment-arts-56638260 reclaimed]] the original spelling of her name, ''Thandiwe''.
* StarMakingRole: ''Film/MissionImpossibleII'' got the ball rolling, but winning a BAFTA Award for ''{{Film/Crash}}'' got her a lot of attention.
* WhatCouldHaveBeen: She was nearly cast in ''Film/CharliesAngels2000'' but had to turn it down when ''Film/MissionImpossibleII'' ran over schedule, and Creator/LucyLiu ended up with the part.
