Letitia Wright Reflects on the Success of 'Black Panther'

Letitia Wright is on the cover of Harper Bazaar UK‘s December issue, which is out now.

Here’s what the 26-year-old Black Panther star had to say…

On the roles she chooses to portray: “Early on, I would just say no if the roles weren’t progressive for myself or my community. You are told there’s not much for you. I just ignored it and I’m still ignoring it. I want to work with anyone who has something to say. If it’s meaningful and serves a purpose, I’m up for it.”

On the success of Black Panther: “After the premiere, it was overwhelming. I didn’t expect that response to the film. It was doing something that wasn’t done before and it represented the African diaspora. It also took the idea that an all-black cast cannot make this amount of money and slapped it in the face.”

On the all female battle sequence on Avengers: Endgame and an all female Marvel film: “It was a beautiful moment. We spent most of the time trying to convince the producers that we should get an all-female Marvel film. After every take we’d be like, “Did you see that? We don’t need the guys!”’

John Boyega & Letitia Wright Set to Star in 'Small Axe'

John Boyega and Letitia Wright have joined the cast of upcoming anthology series Small Axe!

The two actors will lead the all British cast in the show directed by Oscar-winning Steve McQueen, according to Variety.

The series, which has been years in the making, will be set in London’s West Indian community, running from the late 1960s and to the early ’80s. It will be comprised of six parts and tell five different stories.

“I felt these stories needed to be shared. I wanted to relive, reevaluate and investigate the journeys that my parents and the first generation of West Indians went on to deliver me here today calling myself a black British person. What’s important about our stories is that they are local but at the same time global,” Steve said in a statement.

Production is currently underway on location in London.
