Lupita Nyong’o RUMORED To Star In Lead Role In ‘Star Wars: Episode VII’
Academy Award winning actress Lupita Nyong’o may possibly have landed a new lead role.
Sources tell The Hollywood Reporter that the “12 Years a Slave” star met with director J.J. Abrams a few weeks before the Oscars. She’s supposedly in talks for the female lead role in the highly anticipated sci-fi film "Star Wars: Episode VII."
There aren’t any details on the actual role but one possibility is that of a descendent of Obi-Wan Kenobi, described as a role for someone of color.
Lupita and her stylist Macaela Erlanger graced the cover of The Hollywood Reporter for their 25 Most Powerful Stylists list. Macaela found herself at the top of the list and she dished on working with Lupita during Awards season, which was nothing short of amazing.
