Ruth Negga is an actress from Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. The 35-year-old was born to an Irish mother and an Ethiopian father, and she graduated from Trinity College, Dublin with a BA in Acting Studies. Ruth made her acting debut in 2004, playing Wanda Harrison in “The Replacement” episode of the British soap opera Doctors. She would make her first film appearance later that same year, taking on the lead role of Taiwo in the Irish movie Capital Letters.
After getting her start in the business, Ruth had no trouble booking parts. Some of her most famous roles up to his point in her career have been as Charlie in Breakfast on Pluto (2005), Rosie in Love/Hate (2010-2011), a WHO doctor in World War Z (2013), Raina in Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. (2013-2015), Lady Taria in Warcraft (2016), and Tulip O’Hare in Preacher (2016-present).
Even though my favorite role from Ruth is without question Tulip in Preacher, this post was written in honor of her 2017 Oscars nomination for Loving. For her performance as Mildred Loving in the historical drama about interracial marriage, Ruth was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Actress. There’s no better way to wish her good luck than by taking a looking at her hottest photos.
