Lupita Nyong'o

Never too late. #Repost @time with @repostapp ・・・ Meet the Cast of "Star Wars: The Force Awakens." Image 5 of 6 Swiss photographer Marco Grob (@marcogrob) captures Star Wars cast member Lupita Nyong'o Ridley for @TIME's latest cover story. TIME photographer Marco Grob takes us behind the scenes with Lupita Nyong’o, who plays alien Maz Kanata in the upcoming Star Wars sequel. Fresh off an Oscar win for her role in 12 Years a Slave, Nyong’o is taking on an entirely new challenge: She plays alien Maz Kanata via motion capture. Nyong’o recently spoke with TIME about why the storied fantasy franchise has thrived. “I think you can tell from the cast that it is a lot more multicultural," she says. "One of the things I remember as a child connecting with Star Wars is one of the characters spoke Kikuyu, which is a Kenyan language. And I remember feeling like that made Star Wars mine, it made Star Wars Kenyan for all I was concerned." Go behind the scenes of Nyong'o's photo shoot at Photo taken at Time studios Nov. 10, 2015.
