Cynthia Erivo Is Going to Star in a Movie About Princess 'Gifted' to Queen Victoria

Cynthia Erivo is taking on a big new role.

The 33-year-old Harriet actress is set to star in and produce a film based on the life of Sarah Forbes Bonetta, a 19th century African princes who was “gifted” to Queen Victoria after she being orphaned and enslaved by a West African king, Deadline reported.

Here are more details: “Born Omoba Aina, an Egbado princess of the Yoruba people, she was ‘gifted’ to Queen Victoria in 1850, taken to England and renamed Sarah Forbes Bonetta. The Queen’s patronship was a thorny rose that put Sarah at the centre of British aristocracy but did not shield her from public scrutiny, personal suffering or the dangers of a capricious court that was fundamentally suspicious of her as a strong, educated Black woman.”

According to the report, the biopic is meant to be a celebration of Sarah Forbes Bonetta as a “strategic, determined heroine who found a way to embrace her Black-ness, her African-ness and to ultimately find love, forging a path for herself that honoured both her heritage and her upbringing.”

“I am excited to embark on this journey. It has taken a long time to get to a point where we can even begin to realize this dream. As a Nigerian British woman, to get the opportunity to tell the story of another Nigerian British woman who until now has been erased from the history books, is an honor. Miss Sarah Forbes Bonetta, Omoba Aina, is truly a passion of mine and I’m so pleased to have been able to find partners in the incredible women, Leah Clarke and Rienkje Attoh, to tell the story and finally give her a voice. I cannot wait to dive into her story. She is indeed the forgotten princess, forgotten no more,” Cynthia said in a statement.

She also stars in this highly anticipated movie, which just debuted a trailer!

“So we need to f—king bombard that s—t with Jelena and how Selena is better. Go after her, please, let’s all go after her,” the woman added.

Justin released a statement on his Instagram Stories, along with the video. He said, “This sad excuse of a human just encouraged people on video to literally go after my wife, telling people to say that my previous relationship was better so on and so fourth. I just wanted to share this so that people get an idea of what we face on a day to day.”

'The Flight Attendant' Season Finale Will Be Here Sooner Than You Probably Realized!

There are now five episodes of Kaley Cuoco‘s show The Flight Attendant streaming on HBO Max and the season finale will be here very soon!

Daniel Radcliffe Explains Why He Won't Join Social Media, And It Might Not Be What You Think

Daniel Radcliffe Explains Why He Won't Join Social Media, And It Might Not Be What You Think

Daniel Radcliffe is opening up about his lack of social media accounts and why he hasn’t joined any of the apps.

The 31-year-old actor, who shot to fame with his role as Harry Potter, is on the latest episode of Hot Ones, in which he ate 10 spicy wings while being interviewed.

Daniel didn’t say that he’s off of social media to maintain his privacy. He’s not on social media to make sure he doesn’t get into any fights!

“I would love to say there’s some sort of intellectual, well throughout reason for this,” Daniel said. “‘Cause I considered getting a Twitter and I 100 percent know that if I did, you all would be waking up to stories like ‘Dan Radcliffe gets into fight with random person on Twitter.”

He added, “When I was younger, not anymore thanks god, I would like to look up comments about myself on the internet and read s–t like that. That is an insane and bad thing to do. And to me, like Twitter and everything just feels like an extension of that. Unless I want to go just read all nice things about myself, which also feels like another healthy thing to do.”

There was a Harry Potter reunion last month that you have to watch!
