Lupita Nyong'o tears up while reliving Oscar-winning role

On Inside the Actors Studio, Lupita Nyong’o got emotional when speaking about her first ever movie role in 2013’s 12 Years a Slave. Nyong’o won an Academy Award for Best Actress in a Supporting Role for her depiction of Patsey, a slave who is raped and brutalized by her master. And it was all too clear that the role of Patsey has stuck with Nyong’o years after filming.
