Actress Gugu Mbatha-Raw talked with Roland Martin, host of “NewsOne Now” on the “Beyond The Lights” movie premiere red carpet.
Martin asked Mbatha-Raw about how the music in the film creates a separate dialog of its own in the movie.Mbatha-Raw told Martin the music in the film shows “us how she (Noni, the main character in the movie) is evolving away from that packaged sort of sexualized princess into a more authentic singer songwriter.”
When talking about the relationship between her and Nate Parker on screen, Mbatha-Raw said, “I think it’s the meeting of souls.” She added, “Noni is very much suffocating in this very plastic shinny Hip Hop world and Nate’s character, Kaz really brings the sense of reality and integrity and they both kind of complement each other in many ways.”
Mbatha-Raw told Martin that while their characters find each other in the movie, they also “find themselves.”
