If you don’t know the name Ruth Negga, you will now! The actress of Irish and Ethiopian descent is as breathtakingly beautiful as she is talented, and audiences will soon be falling in love with her powerful performance in the new biopic Loving.

The film, directed by Jeff Nichols, tells the true story of Mildred (played by Negga) and Richard Loving (played by Joel Edgerton), a Virginia couple whose interracial marriage in 1958 led to a landmark Supreme Court case and the abolition of anti-marriage laws based on race.

HipHollywood sat down with Negga, who is currently starring on Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., and Edgerton, to talk about their performances that are already generating Oscar buzz. “I knew this film was special,” said Edgerton, who had previously worked with Nichols on the film Midnight Special. “I was like unless someone forget to turn on the camera, there’s no way people won’t fall in love with this film.”

Loving hits theaters November 4th.
