EXCLUSIVE: Coming off Apple’s The Morning Show, Gugu Mbatha-Raw is heading to another streaming drama. The British actress has been cast in Loki, the Disney+ series starring Tom Hiddleston as the trickster demi-god and brother to Thor, I have learned.

As is the case with every Marvel project, details about Mbatha-Raw’s role are under wraps, but I hear it is a prominent character, described as the female lead. In addition to Hiddleston, the only actor who has been confirmed by Marvel/Disney, Mbatha-Raw joins fellow cast members Owen Wilson and Sophia Di Martino in the series. Marvel had no comment.

In the new Marvel Studios series, Hiddleston returns as the mercurial Loki, the Asgardian god of mischief and everyone’s favorite Marvel villain, in stories that take place after the events of Avengers: Endgame. with There likely will be a tie-in to the May 2021 supernatural sequel Doctor Strange and the Multiverse of Madness.

Mbatha-Raw was a series regular on the first season of Apple TV+ drama series The Morning Show, starring opposite Jennifer Aniston, Reese Witherspoon and Steve Carell. On the big screen, she most recently starred in Motherless Brooklyn, alongside Edward Norton and Willem Dafoe. She will next be seen in the British comedy-drama Misbehaviour, starring alongside Keira Knightley and Jessie Buckley, and in Come Away, starring opposite Angelina Jolie and David Oyelowo. Additionally, she has completed production on World War II drama Summerland. [Source]

I was able to track down another one of Gugu’s old project but sadly it isn’t in the best quality. Bad Girls (2006) was set in the fictional women’s prison of Larkhall, and features a mixture of serious and light storylines focusing on the prisoners and staff of G Wing. Gugu guest starred in 2 episodes as Fidelity, the bride to be of one of the main character’s son.

I’ve updated the gallery with promotional photos and screencaptures of Gugu’s 2008 mini series Bonekickers.

Set against the backdrop of Bath, a city steeped in 3,000 years of history, Gillian and her team – Dr Ben Ergha (forensic, objective), Professor Gregory Parton (encyclopaedic but terminally louche) and eager young post-grad intern Viv Davis – are brought in under a variety of imperatives to extract bodies, books, weapons and all manner of artefacts which lead them into an investigation of the past that will unlock dangers and mysteries in the present.

I’ve been able to locate, what I think is Gugu’s first project, at least according to her IMDB. Gugu guest starred on Holby City’s 7th season as a pregnant lady called Colette Hill. You can watch the episode (Thanks tumblr)and check out the screencaptures below.

I’ve updated the gallery with what a lot consider Gugu’s first big break when she guest starred in Doctor Who in 2007 as Tish Jones, the sister of The Doctor’s companion then; Martha Jones. I’ve updated the gallery with stills, screencaptures and the promotional picture of her appearance, enjoy!

News: Honorable Mention to Gugu’s Performance in Black Mirror

05 November 2016
Posted by Mouza with 0 Comments

HONORABLE MENTION | While some Black Mirror episodes can be haunting, even terrifying, Season 2’s trip to “San Junipero” was alternately heartbreaking and then reaffirming, thanks in great part to the work of Gugu Mbatha-Raw. Her Kelly, at first, was just a party girl looking to have the best time possible in the titular place. But then came Yorkie, an awkward sweetheart who slowly but surely showed Kelly how to love — and commit to — someone again, having already suffered great loss. Mbatha-Raw’s performance was most compelling during the last couple of San Junipero sequences, as Kelly convinced Yorkie, and us, that their undying (so to speak) love was not meant to be — until, as their and our hearts swelled, it was.
