Black Panther star Letitia Wright has received an Emmy Award nomination for her performance in the Black Mirror episode "Black Museum." However, the Guyanese-born British actress has yet to have watched it.
"By the Emmys, I will have seen the episode," she told Entertainment Tonight. "It’s so bad. I want to see the whole season together, so finding that time is annoying."
But that doesn't mean she isn't grateful for the nomination.
"To know that the hard work and care that went into this character and what she was representing—that people vibe to it and it got a nomination—is just a feeling of total gratitude," she continued.
The 24-year-old actress also gave a bit of insight on how she landed the role with the help of her Black Panther co-star, Daniel Kaluuya, who starred in the Black Mirror first season episode "Fifteen Million Merits."
"They asked me to read the script and, if I liked it, put myself on tape. I called up Daniel and was like, 'Bro, I need that source.' Come to my apartment and help me," she explained. "He played Rolo for me. I said, 'I can’t do two takes, we need to nail this in one.' We did it and the week after that, I booked it."
And as we mentioned, she didn't just book it—she's up for an Emmy Award for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Limited Series for the role. The Emmy Awards are set to air on September 17.
