Lupita Nyong’o, 33-year-old Oscar-winning actress says “I want to create opportunities for People of Colour” as she covers America’s Vogue’s October issue.
To celebrate her new movie ‘Queen of Katwe’, the Oscar-winng actress took Vogue, including Mario Testino, Tonne Goodman and her hairstylist Vernon Francois to her village in Kenya.
“To play a mother of four in Uganda, a formidable mother who has so much working against her, was so compelling to me. It wasn’t something I thought I’d be asked to do”—at least not by Hollywood. “The fact that it was based on a true story, an uplifting story out of Africa. . . .”
She inhales and shakes her head. “Oh, my goodness, all my dreams were coming true in that script.”
