Ruth Negga

Born in Ethiopia, she moved to Dublin with her Irish mother after the death of her father in car crash. After auditioning for a role in Neil Jordan's Breakfast on Pluto, Jordan was so impressed that he changed the part especially so she could play it. Only had 8 days to prepare for the title role of Shirley Bassey in BBC drama biopic, Shirley.
