The rising star got her start on TV in the British series “Doctor Who,” “Cucumber,” and “Chasing Shadows.” She recently landed a key role in Steven Spielberg’s upcoming big-budget tentpole “Ready Player One,” beating out dozens of young actresses to costar opposite Tye Sheridan and Olivia Cooke.

Creed helmer Ryan Coogler will direct.

Boseman will play T’Challa, the prince of the African nation of Wakanda, who must take over the throne after his father’s murder. Marvel unveiled the character in “Captain America: Civil War” in May and his standalone film hits theatres on February 16, 2018.

  • This is excellent news …great job …. thats why I love this news site. Always have unique different news.

  • Good for her, but why does this make the news ?

    Is it because she was born in Guyana ? Guyanese need to stop claiming these individuals like they are responsible for their success.

    She achieved her dreams because she migrated to another country that offered her the opportunity to succeed.

    When Guyana makes an attempt to help the young people achieve their dreams instead of holding them under the heels of a political and racial divide then i will gladly help share such articles.
