Thandiwe’s eye-catching dress fell just over her knees and featured a coordinating belt which cinched in her waist. 

The Westworld star’s raven tresses were scraped back into a sleek high ponytail and she accessorised with heart drop-earrings and a statement ring. 

Completing her look, Thandiwe strolled along in a pair of black Chanel slides boasting the designer label’s emblem. 

The Line Of Duty actress was also seen after the show wearing her fancy footwear with a long-sleeved Breton top from the same designer, and a pair of mom jeans.

In April, the actress reverted to her real name – Thandiwe – three decades after it was misspelt as Thandie in her first film. 

The star, whose full name is Melanie Thandiwe Newton, appeared on the cover of the May issue of British Vogue with her name spelt correctly in a major publication for the first time. 

She revealed that Thandie was a careless misspelling in the credits of her first movie – the 1991 Australian film Flirting, co-starring Nicole Kidman and Noah Taylor – and it has stuck ever since.

In the film, she actually plays a character called Thandiwe and while her character’s name is spelled correctly in the end credits, hers is not. 

It is unclear whether this was coincidental or a deliberate decision, but in all her future projects she will be credited as Thandiwe Newton.

‘That’s my name. It’s always been my name. I’m taking back what’s mine,’ she told the magazine.

The name is pronounced ‘tan-DEE-way’ and means ‘beloved’. It’s not known why the actress, who is known for being outspoken, has waited this long to officially use her real name.
