British-Nigerian actress, Wunmi Mosaku has been having a really great run recently. Since her BAFTA win for her great performance in BBC's Damilola, Our Loved Boy, she's scored acting gigs in Netflix's acclaimed dramedy, The End of the F***ing World and the upcoming season of Luther.
Now, the talented actress seems set to finally land her big Hollywood break in HBO's upcoming drama series, Lovecraft Country, alongside Jonathan Majors (When We Rise) and Jurnee Smollett-Bell (Underground).
Based on a 2016 novel, Lovecraft Country is set in the 1950s and follows the story of Atticus Black, who goes on a road trip with his friend, Leticia and his uncle, George to find his missing father. Their journey sees them struggling to survive and overcome both the racist terrors of white America and also terrifying monsters (one and the same really).
Deadline, who broke the news, says Wunmi will be playing the role of Rudy Dandridge, who is "a hustler just like her half-sister Leticia, whose family ties are tested when she’s presented with an offer she can’t refuse."
As if the storyline and casting aren't exciting enough, the series will be executive produced by Misha Green (Underground), J.J. Abrams (Lost) and Jordan Peele (Get Out), so we know that we're in for a treat. There's no word about when it comes out, but we'll definitely be keeping an eye out for more information about the series!
