Meet Sope Aluko, the Nigerian in “Black Panther”

Sope Aluko is the Hollywood actress that you need to know. After landing a coveted role in highly anticipated movie “Black Panther“, the Nigerian/British/American actress popped up on our radar.

Sope Aluko was born in Nigeria but primarily raised in the UK. She has dual-citizenship in both the US and the UK, and speaks four different languages, including her native language, Yoruba.

In the past couple of years, Sope has had roles on Netflix’s “Bloodline”, NBC’s “Law & Order SVU” and “Parks & Recreation”, and guest appearances on USA Network’s “Burn Notice”, “Graceland” and Lifetime’s “Army Wives”. Her film credits include supporting roles in feature films like “Identity Thief”, “Pitch Perfect 2”, “96 Minutes”, “Grass Stains”, “The Good Lie” and more.

Sope is a mother to two teenage boys, and currently splits her time between Miami and Los Angeles.

Last night Sope looked gorgeous as she attended the world premiere of “Black Panther”.

She stayed true to her roots as she rocked a green laser cut outfit from leading fashion brand Deola Sagoe. She accessorized with a bracelet by HStern, earring from Neil Lane, a pair of Stuart Weitzman shoes and a Tyler Ellis clutch.

She also posed with other stars of the movie.
