Gugu Mbatha-Raw: Everything you need to know about the Bafta Rising Star nominee
January 9, 2015
What will you recognise her from?
Horror and supernatural fans will most likely recognise Gugu from the criminally underrated Odd Thomas, a movie based on the novel of the same name by Dean Koontz, which also starred Star Trek’s Anton Yelchin and the always-brilliant Willem Dafoe.
The movie wasn’t widely released in the UK, but was shown at London-based film festival FrightFest and can be found on Netflix for your streaming pleasure.
Outside of that, you may recognise her from period drama Belle, where she plays a mixed-race daughter of a Navy Admiral, raised by her aristocratic uncle in the 18th Century, and romantic drama Beyond the Lights where she portrayed a pop star called Noni who falls for young cop Kaz.
She will be featuring in The Wachowskis’ Jupiter Ascending later this year.
