Lupita Nyong’o Drops By “The Ellen Show” To Talk About “Us”2 months ago by Amber Le in Movie News, TV News
Every great actor and actress in Hollywood adapt their character in more ways than just on screen. There’s a lot of off screen work that goes with it. During an appearance on The Ellen Show, Lupita Nyong’o dug a little deeper to explain to Ellen Degeneres what it was like bringing her character, Adelaide Wilson to life along with her experience working with Jordan Peele.
“It’s a nightmare from Jordan Peele’s mind and it is about a woman who is riddled with this trauma from her childhood that she can not explain. She’s on vacation with her family in the summer home in Santa Cruz and she’s convinced that something bad is going to happen, and she’s proven right when these four shadowy figures show up at the top of their driveway and their worst nightmare ensues.”
Her character is actually equivalent to two people, the sane Adelaide and the insane Adelaide. She continues speaking on her experience regarding the filming of Us.
“It was incredible. I mean, it was hard work. They’re very different and they’re diametrically opposed to each other but they are also connected, so I had to go to some dark places within myself to find the doppelganger Red, do a crazy voice. That was a lot of fun to create. I enjoyed the experience.”
