15 Women to Watch in 2015
Where She’s Located
Los Angeles, CA / London, England
If 2014 seemed to be the year of actress Lupita Nyong’o, get ready for 2015 to be the year of Gugu Mbatha-Raw. She’s been the buzz on everyone’s lips with not one but two stellar (if not breakout) performances in 2014 movies “Bell” and “Beyond the Lights.” While it may seem she’s “come out of no where,” she’s actually been floating in and out of American TV shows and movies since 2010 after successfully launching her career in her native England and becoming nominated for several British film awards. Look for Gugu in at least three projects in 2015, including Jupiter Ascending and an unnamed project starring Will Smith, and as a possible nominee for Best Actress in the Oscars.
