Hollywood's Ruth Negga is lensed by Tesh near the Hotel Du Cap-Eden-Roc in Antibes on the French Riviera. The newly-crowned Louis Vuitton ambassador is styled by Jayne Pickering for the September 2018 Marie Claire UK cover story.
Continuing with her role "as a ball-busting Tulip" in the third season of 'Preacher', available on Amazon Prime, Negga is poised to play 'Hamlet' at home-country Dublin's Gate Theatre from September 21-October 27. This is not Negga's first Shakespearean role, having played Lavinia in 'Titus Andronicus in 2006. She also played Ophelia in 'Hamlet' at London's National Theatre in 2010.
The play's director Yaël Farber said that Negga, 36, was assuming the role of Hamlet during a “ravaging time in our world”.
“It seems we are all in the court of Claudius now, collectively sliding towards the cliff over which facts, truth and integrity have tumbled,” she said.
