Lupita Nyong’o is a red hot actress who shines on the silver screen. This Academy Award winning star is featured in the box office smash Black Panther which is playing in theaters worldwide. In the film, she plays the role of Nakia; an undercover spy for Wakanda, and a complete badass who knows judo, jujitsu, silat and Filipino martial arts.

Nyong’o first garnered mainstream appeal in the 2013 film 12 Years A Slave, which earned her an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress. Her breakthrough role also resulted in Nyong’o taking home two SAG Awards, a Golden Globe, and a BAFTA Award for Best Supporting Actress.

The 33-year-old actress also holds a prominent role in the new Star Wars films. She was cast as Maz Kanata in the 2015 epic space opera Star Wars: The Force Awakens. She reprised her role in the 2017 film Star Wars: The Last Jedi. In a November 2015 issue of Entertainment Weekly, JJ Abrams said that Kanata is “lived over a thousand years. She’s had this watering hole … and it’s like another bar that you’d find in a corner of the Star Wars universe.”

Her next film project is Abe Forsythe’s horror-romance Little Monsters, which will hit theaters sometime in 2018. In the film, she will star as a teacher named Miss Caroline. Later this year, Nyong’o is set to make her professional writing debut with a children’s book entitled Sulwe, a story of a 5-year-old Kenyan girl who has the darkest skin in her family. This actress turned author used her own childhood experiences as inspiration for the book.

Lupita Nyong’o is also apart of the #MeToo Movement. The actress wrote an op-ed for The New York Times, alleging that Harvey Weinstein sexually harassed her twice in 2011 while she was still a student at Yale University.
