Lupita Nyong'o is a Kenyan actress who stars in British Director (not the American actor) Steve McQueen's 2013 epic 12 Years A Slave film (the one that Brad Pitt turned down the role of a slaver in because he didn't want his kids to see him portraying such a role so he became a producer instead).  She was born in Mexico (hence the Spanish first name), raised in Kenya and educated at the Yale School of Drama.  She is gorgeous and talented and worthy of a toast.  I think 2014 is going to be her year. These images are from an editorial in DuJour Magazine.

She is a talented and driven beauty. I met Lupita in Zanzibar in 2006 we were both volunteers at the Zanzibar International Film Festival. Two years later I saw her on CNN being interviewed as producer of the documentary "In My Genes". And now - THIS!!!

You are so right - we will definitely be seeing a lot more of her.
