If you’re like us, you can’t wait to cast your eyes on the big screen to watch Marvel’s “Black Panther.” The marvelous, mostly brown cast has a whole heck of a lot to do with that, especially actress Lupita Nyong’o, who captured our hearts with her performance in “12 Years a Slave.” In “Black Panther,” Nyong’o plays warrior goddess Nakia, and we understand she endured 6 weeks of rigorous, butt-kicking boot camp workouts to prepare. No doubt she’ll wow us again. Vogue.com┬árecently featured the 34-year-old star, and we learned an endless list of cool things about her — from her favorite breakfast to spirit animal to her favorite fashion trend to her first pet. With her Kenyan-Mexican heritage, she even dazzles us with commentary in Swahili and Spanish.

Check this behind-the-scenes video where she shares all of this and more:
