Anyone who has seen Lupita Nyong’o on Broadway in “Eclipsed” would understand her passion for Mother Health Intl.
The organization is dedicated to providing relief to women and children in Uganda and other impoverished or war-torn regions, in large part by creating locally engaged birthing centers. Meanwhile, “Eclipsed,” written by “Walking Dead” star Danai Gurira, centers on the captive “wives” of a Liberian warlord during that nation’s second civil war. During the course of the play, a character delivers a baby.
“There are many parallels with the play I’m doing,” Nyong’o says of MHI. “What these women are going through in northern Uganda is very much what we witness happening in the story I’m telling right now in ‘Eclipsed.’ It’s a tragedy that women’s bodies are used as tools of war. When that happens, the trauma of war affects birthing. Mortality rates of children are so high and mothers die at such a high rate in these areas. It’s so important to change that.”
Nyong’o says she’d never thought much about birthing practices before her sister introduced her to MHI executive director Rachel Zaslow (who, like Nyong’o, graduated from Hampshire College in Amherst, Mass.). Calling attention to such important but overlooked issues is a mandate for her as an artist, Nyong’o says.
Lupita Nyong’o has given fans a behind-the-scenes look at how she brought alien Maz Kanata to life in Star Wars.
The star shared a Twitter video glimpse as she worked with special effects experts to create the CGI character in The Force Awakens.
‘Happy #MazMonday!’ she captioned the clip.
