You may not know British Actress Ruth Negga, but she is about to become a household name.
Negga is a part of one of the most buzzed about films at the Cannes Film Festival Loving, which chronicles the trials and tribulations of Richard and Mildred Loving who were jailed in 1958 because of their interracial marriage.
The movie is already getting early Oscar hype and Negga could be in line for a Lupita Nyong’o-esque run towards the film worlds biggest prize. HBO released an amazing documentary about the Lovings in 2012 that really should be required viewing.
I’m sure you remember the TV movie made about the couple, starring Lela Rochon and Timothy Hutton.
Now the landmark case is getting the big screen treatment with Negga and Joel Edgerton in the lead roles.
If you’re looking for a quick fix of Ruth, then check out AMC’s upcoming series Preacher. The beauty stars as a tough-as-nails character named Tulip. The show follows a gun-toting man of God who is out to change the world, meanwhile, Negga may be the one shaking things up.
Remember, we told you about her first.
