Amita Suman, a Nepal-born British actress, recently gave a critically acclaimed performance in the hit Netflix series ‘Shadow and Bone’. Suman, born in Bedhihari, Parsa, had moved to England at the age of seven. Since graduating from the Academy of Live and Recorded Arts in 2018, she’s starred in popular shows such as ‘The Outpost’ and ‘Doctor Who’.
