SENDS GUGU MBATA RAW AND SAM WORTHIN GTON TO CRIMEAN WAR
She already played a daring real life woman of colour in Belle, a role which made her name known around the globe, and now Gugu Mbata Raw will join Sam Worthington in SEACOLE historical drama, a true life story of Mary Seacole. She will take the lead role of the pioneering Jamaican nurse who became known during the Crimean War for her care of wounded British soldiers. Seacole’s self-sacrifice on the front lines and fierce, adversarial relationship with Florence Nightingale during the war made her famous in her time. Spiderman's Numan Acar will play The Pasha, a high ranking officer in the Turkish army, a lover not a fighter, who helps Mary build her hotel. Sylvia Hoeks and Sean
Delaney will also star in the film to be directed by Charlie Stratton film later this year in UK and Romania.
