Actress Thandie Newton is currently in the news because of her recent disclosure that she had never been in a hospital and thus did not want her first trip to be for her third child as she had given birth to her two daughters, 13 year old Ripley and 9 year old Nico at home. As a result she gave birth to her son Booker who is now 11 weeks old on a bathroom floor in her home with the same midwife that was present for the birth of her other two children.
The beautiful actress admitted to associating hospitals with being ill and when she was pregnant she felt beautiful, healthy and wonderful and this was the main reason she did not want to enter a hospital to give birth to her son. Her admission during the interview has brought attention to those who prefer home births to having their children in hospitals but the attention on Thandie Newton has not been completely focused on where she chose to have her children.
The talented actress is earning sensational reviews from entertainment critics for her leading lady performance in season 1 of the popular television show "Rogue". Critics were very impressed with her performance as undercover detective Grace Travis who in the first season avenged the murder of her 7-year old son while exposing a corrupt cop, ending a counterfeit drug ring and having an affair with a crime boss.
She showed her extensive dramatic range brilliantly in playing the strong but flawed character Grace Travis as she expressed the complete range of emotions in a manner that gave the audience a true understanding of her character. Critics talked about how she showed something in every episode whether it was grief, anger, devotion, physicality or competence that connected with viewers but this is no surprise for anyone who has followed her career.
Thandie Newton is a topic of conversation with some in the media for her recent child birth but she is also a topic of conversation with entertainment insiders for her spectacular acting which can be seen on television in season 2 of "Rogue" on Direct TV and has filmmakers looking at her as a potential leading lady for their future projects.
