Sophie Okonedo Set To Star In The Third Instalment Of 'Hellboy'
The third installment of the movie franchise, Hellboy – which is based on the Dark Horse comics of the same name– has just added Tony-winner and Oscar-nominee Sophie Okonedo to its cast.
The British-Nigerian actress will be playing Lady Hatton, a resident seer at an ancient English organisation which is dedicated to uncovering supernatural mysteries.
Okonedo has starred in successful British and American productions throughout her career. She made her acting debut in the critically acclaimed coming-of-age drama, Young Soul Rebels. In 2004, she earned praise and an Oscar nomination for her role as Tatiana Rusesabagina in the genocide drama Hotel Rwanda.
She is no stranger to the sci-fi genre either, and following her role in Doctor Who, there is no doubt about her ability to smash this role! We are definitely looking forward to seeing her performance in this movie!
The trailer is yet to be released, however you can watch this preview while we wait:
