Ruth Negga on Being an Actress: 'I Just Knew I Wanted to Do It'

Ruth Negga dons a Louis Vuitton dress on the cover of Town & Country magazine‘s August 2017 issue, on newsstands July 4.

Here’s what the 35-year-old Preacher actress had to share with the mag:

On growing up in Ireland: “In Ireland there weren’t very many black people. I was sort of exotic.”

On the tragic loss of her father at age 7 and dealing with death: “It’s not a taboo subject. My mom talks about my dad a lot. It’s awful to not know someone who you look like. It’s tragic, but that’s life, isn’t it? … You don’t have any concept when you’re a kid. This earthquake has happened, and you don’t know how to process it, and a lot of people it, and a lot of people around you don’t know how to process it.”

On her lifelong dream of being an actress: “I didn’t act as a child, I just knew I wanted to do it… I just watched movies. I don’t know how to explain it.”
