Veronica Chambers interviews Lupita about her new horror movie ‘Us’. Lupita’s ‘Rolling Stone’ interview does a better job of setting up the plot line.

“I was fairly terrified just reading the script,” says Lupita Nyong’o, who stars in two roles in Jordan Peele’s ‘Get Out follow-up, ‘Us’, due March 22nd. Playing both a loving mom and a creepy, scissor-toting, probably murderous doppelgänger of said mom (her fellow ‘Black Panther’ actor Winston Duke plays the dad and his double) posed numerous acting and technical challenges, particularly when she shares the screen with herself. Still, she says, she “thoroughly enjoyed” the experience. Here’s what Nyong’o had to say about ‘Us’ and Peele in an interview for our latest cover story.
