Exclusive interview: Cynthia Erivo – watch our great chat with the Brit actress/singer & songwriter

She is utterly lovely to chat to! Watch Claudia Peifer’s exclusive interview with Cynthia Erivo, when she caught up with her during London Fashion Week ay Bao Ta’s catwalk show. That was just before she went State-side to perform on Broadway in New York in Oprah Winfrey’s production of the smash hit ‘The Colour Purple’. Starring alongside Jennifer Hudson is no easy task, yet Cynthia won over America (literally) with her powerful voice and her gorgeous personality in no time.

By now, she is a Daytime Emmy winner, bagged a Grammy & Tony Award on the way, and has been nominated for two Golden Globe Awards, two Academy Awards, a Prime Time Emmy Awards and a Screen Actor’s Guild Award. Yet, she is still so humble, with both feet on the ground. Her recent endeavours include playing her absolute idol Aretha Franklin in ‘Genius: Aretha’ for the National Geographic channel. Her next project is a starring role in the big-screen adaption of the Tony-winning musical ‘Wicked’ for Universal, defying gravity alongside Ariana Grande. She is set to play Glinda and Elphaba in this massively popular Broadway musical. So, superstardom beckons and nearing EGOT-status, Cynthia, as a multi-hyphenate, is the one to watch! All that’s missing is an Oscar, so fingers crossed for the girl from Stockwell, London
