Best known for essaying the titular role in the acclaimed period drama Belle (2013), Gugu Mbatha-Raw is a British film, stage and television actress.

The romantic comedy Larry Crowne (2011) and the supernatural mystery thriller Odd Thomas (2013) preceded her breakout role in Belle (2013), which won Mbatha-Raw the British Independent Film Award for Best Actress that year.

Subsequent appearances in the acclaimed romantic drama Beyond the Lights (2014) and the biographical sports drama Concussion (2015) brought Mbatha-Raw further recognition, with the former earning her the Emerging Artist Award at the Chicago International Film Festival.
