Lupita Nyong’o: Actress wants to play romantic comedies

Lupita Nyong’o has previously acted in superhero films, thrillers and horror films. Now she wants to devote herself to lighter stories.

Lupita Nyong’o (41) is ready for a genre change. The actress has played numerous dramatic roles in the course of her career. She won an Oscar for her portrayal of a slave in “12 Years a Slave” and has also played in thrillers, superhero and horror films. But things don’t always have to be so tragic for Nyong’o. “Please tell everyone that I’m looking for a romantic comedy. I’m here. I’m taking calls,” she announced.

On June 14, the American actress was honored in Los Angeles by Paramount Pictures and Hollywood Confidential for her many years of work in the film and television industry. She used the opportunity to put herself in the spotlight with producers of romantic comedies. “If I have to audition, I will do it. I’m dying to do a comedy,” Nyong’o said.

Cat videos as proof of suitability

To highlight her relaxed side, she has even started posting silly videos of herself and her cat. “I try to tell executives that I’m funny and that I can be lighthearted and easygoing. But I have more dramatic roles in my repertoire than light ones, so you just have to give me a chance,” explained Lupita Nyong’o.

First, however, Nyong’o will be back in her usual role. “A Quiet Place: Day One” will be released in theaters on June 27. In Michael Sarnoski’s horror film, a spin-off of 2018’s “A Quiet Place,” she plays Sam. She has to survive an alien invasion in New York City against murderous creatures with extremely keen hearing.
