Lupita N’yongo Wants to Be on Game of Thrones

2 minute read

Lupita N’yongo has serious experience staying tight-lipped on the upcoming new Star Wars, so she’d clearly be a good candidate for another show that requires its stars to keep mum on plots and spoilers.

The Oscar winner appears on Vogue’s cover for a second time in October and filmed a video answering 73 questions about her life growing up, her secret talents and her ideal show to make a cameo. Game of Thrones is the answer, to which the interviewer replies that that’s what everyone says.

There may yet be a part suitable for her on a show that has come under fire in the past for a lack of racial diversity. Author George R.R. Martin told a fan who was upset about the lack of diversity that “I do have some ‘characters of color’ who will have somewhat larger roles in [forthcoming book] WINDS OF WINTER. Admittedly, these are secondary and tertiary characters, though not without importance.”

The star speaks Swahili and Spanish in the video and also recites her favorite rap line: “I want a lady in the street but a freak in the bed.”
