With strong performances in both film and television, Gugu Mbatha-Raw has established herself as a rising star, appearing in tv shows such as Doctor Who, Undercovers, and Touch, as well as movies such as Larry Crowne and Odd Thomas. Her growing number of fans were thus pleased when Mbatha-Raw landed her first feature film leading role in Belle. The film, which made its premiere at the 2013 Toronto International Film Festival, sees Mbatha-Raw appear alongside Matthew Goode, Emily Watson, Tom Felton, Sarah Gadon, Tom Wilkinson, and Miranda Richardson. The first trailer for the film, director Amma Asante’s second feature, has now been released, and can be seen below.
