1 She’d never watched Black Mirror before filming ‘I just fell in love with the characters [in San Junipero]. It was very vibrant. The concept was mind-blowing.’ 2 Gugu’s no social media fan ‘The more people know about you, the harder it is for them to believe you as different characters. I’m interested in transformation, but I think you’re vulnerable as a character if you do that.’ 3 She’s got a busy year ahead Gugu will next appear in Miss Sloane alongside Jessica Chastain (Feb 2017), as Plumette in Beauty And The Beast with Emma Watson (March2017) and A Wrinkle In Time with Reese Witherspoon (2018). ‘It’s a very exciting time,’ she says.
