Lupita Nyong’o

Academy award winner Lupita Nyong’o is set to star as Trevor Noah’s mother in a new biopic about his early life in apartheid South Africa.

Lupita has had nothing but good things to say about Trevor, and the feeling is mutual it seems.

Lupita is a big fan of the book and could not stop singing his praises. “When I read @Trevornoah’s Born A Crime, I could not put the book down. Excited to announce that I will be starring in and producing its feature film adaptation!” she wrote on social media in February last year.
