    There is minor confusion online as to how her family name is pronounced.
    Her parents (a black South African doctor and white English nurse) separated when she was about a year old.
    She is a fan of Marvel Comics.
    Of the seven awards she won in a six-year span, only one was not for ‘Belle (as in, Dido Elizabeth Belle)’ (the Capri Hollywood International Film Festival Rising Star for ‘Beyond the Lights’).
    She has a mole on her upper lip.
    She has a simple straightforward middle name: Sophia.
    She regards Jane Austen as a historical inspiration.
    Bitten early on by the performing bug, she was involved in school bands, the choir, and several styles and types of dance.
    She credits Lisa Simpson for learning… the saxophone.
    ‘I don’t really have one dish. I’m a very improvisational cook. I sort of like to make things up as I go along. I’m very creative in the kitchen.’
