Ruth Negga loves work­ing with Do­minic

Hindustan Times (Gurgaon) - City - - ENTERTAINMENT - IANS

Ac­tor Ruth Negga loves work­ing with her part­ner, ac­tor Do­minic Cooper, be­cause she thinks the en­ter­tain­ment busi­ness can be “lonely” with­out some­one’s sup­port.

“It can be so lonely film­ing, so it’s like your buddy and your back up. He’s got my back and I’ve got his. Very much so,” Negga told Harper’s Bazaar mag­a­zine.

The cou­ple ap­peared to­gether in War­craft (2016). 39year-old Do­minic has also worked on movies such as Cap­tain Amer­ica: The First Avenger (2011) and Mamma Mia! (2008).

Ear­lier this year, Negga was nom­i­nated for an Os­car in Lov­ing (2016), in which she played Mil­dred Lov­ing, one half of a mixed-race cou­ple who chal­lenged the US le­gal sys­tem for the right to marry and live to­gether in Vir­ginia in the 1960s.

She misses the char­ac­ter so much that she of­ten re­watches a doc­u­men­tary about the late ac­tivist and her hus­band Richard. The 35-year-old says that even if she never works again, she’ll al­ways be thank­ful for that movie. “Hon­estly, if I never do any­thing again, I got to be in the or­bit of re­ally spe­cial peo­ple,” she said.

Asked if she wor­ries noth­ing else could com­pare with Lov­ing, she said, “Oh! of course. And some­times, I don’t think I’ve got any­thing else in me. But I think that’s a nat­u­ral place to be.”
