Hot off her win for Best Actress in a Musical at last night’s Tony Awards, the 34-year-old actress has been cast opposite Viola Davis in the upcoming movie The Woman King.

The story follows Nanisca (Davis), general of an all-female military unit, and Nawi (The Underground Railroad‘s Thuso Mbedu), an ambitious recruit, who together fight enemies who violated their honor, enslaved their people and threatened to destroy everything they’ve lived for.”
