Lupita Nyong’o has very recently become one of the most wanted actresses in Hollywood, and also the most wanted for glamorous designers. She has a total Net Worth of $500 thousand, but her account has not stopped growing.

Her role as “Patsey”, a slave subject to her master’s obsession (Michael Fassbender) in “12 Years a Slave” has earned her up to 27 awards (including the Actors’ Union, although she did not win the Golden Globe) and she has been nominated in 38 occasions to different awards.

Who is Lupita Nyong’o?

This young woman with perfect beauty, and with an innate elegance was born 30 years ago in Mexico City, but her origins are in Kenya. She is the daughter of Kenyan political refugees, her father, Peter, was Minister of Medical Services in Kenya and her cousin, Isis Nyong’o, was named one of Kenya’s most powerful women by Forbes magazine in 2012.

When she was only one, Lupita went to live in Kenya, and at the age of 16, she decided to return to Mexico to study Spanish. The University of Nairobi was her first school, although she finished her theatrical studies at the Hampshire College, in the United States, where she currently lives. (specifically in New York with her brother).

Her career.

She has gone step by step in her career as an actress, and few titles have so far contained her résumé. she participated in ‘The Constant Gardener’ by Fernando Meirelles, alongside Ralph Fiennes and in 2008, she collaborated on the short film ‘East River’ by Marc Gray. That same year, she starred in the series “Shuga” in Kenya, a fiction film to raise awareness about the HIV virus, and she collaborated on some theatrical productions at Yale Drama School.

While she was studying at Yale, the director Steve McQueen contacted Lupita to offer her a role in “12 Years a Slave”. She accepted without thinking because, as she revealed a while ago in an interview, “my heart broke with the story, I felt very sorry for her.”

She wanted to prepare herself thoroughly for this role with great hardness and content pain. She recognized that she had to do a great job to be able to personify her, she was a simple woman and she tried to survive, she was not sentimental with her own pain, she had to have the same attitude to embody it. she explained. In a few months, Nyong’o would also participate in another film with Liam Neeson and Julianne Moore called “Non-Stop”

After giving her voice to Raksha in The Jungle Book (Jon Favreau, 2016), and also the voice and facial expressions to Maz Kanata in ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens (JJ Abrams, 2015), Lupita Nyong’ finally will give to the face in her next film, ‘Queen of Katwe’. This is a biopic that tells the story of the Ugandan Phiona Mutesi, a chess prodigy who at the age of 22 has already participated in three Olympics representing her country. In 2012, she also became the first woman to win the Uganda Junior National Championship.
