Name: Lupita Nyong’o
Hometown: Mexico City
Our last #WCW for this Star Wars Month is none other than the incomparable Lupita Nyong’o. Lupita plays the alien Maz Kanata in Star Wars: The Force Awakens. For months there was nothing but speculation on how her character would appear in the final movie cut, and now that it’s out, she’s easily become one of the most intriguing characters of this new Star Wars series. Miss Nyong’o is a stunning beauty and excellent model (just check out her Vogue Cover), among her acting talents. Lupita Nyong’o already an Academy Award winner is definitely a role model and one to look out for.
