If you don’t know the name Gugu Mbatha-Raw, you will soon. The 30-year-old British beauty is about to make a splash with starring roles in the musical drama Blackbird and the 18th century period piece Belle.
HipHollywood sat down with her during the junket for Belle to talk about her rising star status, but she said she wasn’t feeling any pressure. “It’s inspiring and I’m really really happy promoting a story that I’m passionate about,” said Gugu.
Directed by Amma Asante, Belle follows Gugu as Dido Elizabeth Belle, the mixed race daughter of a Royal Navy Admiral on a mission to find her true love and end slavery in England. The film is based on a true story, and Gugu let us in on how she finally landed the role. Check it out.
