John Boyega Is Excited About How ‘The Woman King’ With Viola Davis ‘Shines A Light On Black Women’s Talent’

Starring in “The Woman King” was a joy for Jon Boyega.

In an interview on SiriusXM’s “Bevelations” with Bevy Smith, the actor talked about working with Viola Davis on the epic, and getting to speak his father’s native African tongue in the film.

Boyega recalled another actor on set, “He came up to me and was just like, ‘Is that your dad’s voice?’ He’s from South Africa. He said, ‘Is that your dad’s voice?’ I go, ‘Yeah, yeah, yeah. It is.’ He goes, ‘How the hell?’ I’m like, ‘How did you know?’

It’s just the authority kind of ages me in a way when I use that. But it was the comfort of it. But also it was great sitting back and watching talent, you know, do its thing. Lashana Lynch, Thuso Mbedu, Viola Davis, all these women just killing it.”

He continued, “I was there doing my thing, cameras on me, serious. Then give them the support that they need. The camera switches, I’m just there looking at talent.”
