2017 is going to be a good year for Ruth Negga; we can feel it.
The actress has been on our radar for quite some time. A very long time, in fact. Remember Love is the Drug? She was in that. And of course, there was Love/Hate and Breakfast on Pluto.
But because she's suddenly appeared on American shows Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D and Preacher (in which she is so good) it may seem to US audiences that she's come from practically nowhere. No matter, she's broken America and she absolutely deserves it.
It's her most recent role, in the Oscar-buzzed Loving, that has really put her on the map. Her performance has received critical praise from pretty much everyone who has seen the film, and we're thinking she will soon be as recognisable as Colin Farrell, Michael Fassbender and Saoirse Ronan.
Now, she graces the cover of Vogue (Vogue, like) and doesn't she look like she belongs?
