Rising star Gugu Mbatha-Raw is in the running for an Evening Standard Theatre Award for her performance as one of the West End’s most infamous actresses.

Her portrayal of Nell Gwynn, who rose from the 17th-century London stage to become the mistress of Charles II, sees her shortlisted for the Natasha Richardson Award for Best Actress.

Mbatha-Raw, 32, is recognised alongside Oscar-winner Nicole Kidman, who played pioneering scientist Rosalind Franklin in Photograph 51, Denise Gough for People, Places And Things and Lia Williams for Oresteia. [more at source]

The film opens on Christmas Day and has already emerged as a potential awards season contender. Albert Brooks, Alec Baldwin, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Paul Reiser and Luke Wilson also star.

“AFI Fest is the perfect stage to unveil ‘Concussion’ and we are privileged to have been chosen as the Centerpiece Gala,” Ridley Scott and Giannina Scott said. “‘Concussion’ is a powerful and uncompromising film about an issue that was ignored for far too long and continues to play out today.” [more at source]

It was such “an extraordinary adventure” that offers since have seemed underwhelming, she confesses. “I’ve been doing films and TV, but theatre-wise, nothing else had come along that felt like it could top that … except for this!” [more at source]
