British actress Naomie Harris covers the February issue of Red Magazine and opens up about taking on the role of Winnie Mandela in the new biopic Mandela: Long Walk To Freedom co-starring Idris Elba.

“It was only when I did my research that I thought, ‘Oh my gosh, what the hell have I signed up to?’ She is the most complex woman I have ever played. To many, she is a saint, she’s Mother Africa, you know? To others, she is completely vilified. The pressure of all those expectation, especially filming in South Africa, was a lot. I definitely understand why she became the woman she did. In the same situation, I don’t know how I would react.”

On receiving her standing ovation at the Toronto Film Festival following the film’s presentation Harris said “It was so overwhelming that I was embarrassed. I sat down, but Harvey Weinstein was in the seat behind me and he was like, ‘Stand up, Naomie!’”

Though Ms. Harris has been in various films, she catapulted to stardom after being cast as Eve Moneypenny in the latest installment of the James Bond franchise Skyfall, also starring Daniel Craig, Dame Judy Dench, Ralph Fiennes and Javier Bardem.  She’s also quickly becoming a favorite on the red carpet, showing off the latest in British fashion and giving shoutouts on her Instagram page.
