New Delhi:

The dedication that Lupita Nyong’o has shown towards her craft is well known. So, it should come as no surprise that the Kenyan-Mexican actress gave her heart and soul to her latest film, Black Panther: Wakanda Forever. In fact, the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) film required Lupita to undergo severe training sessions, which included a particularly challenging underwater training routine, for her role as Wakandan spy Nakia. Now, the Oscar-winning actress has opened up about her experience in a social media post. Lupita Nyong’o documents the training process which includes weight training and breathing sessions under water. The video begins with Lupita swimming in a pool holding a dumbbell in her hand. After that swimming is replaced by crawling and walking under water as he holds dumbbells in his hands.

The video features the text bubble, “How I Tend to Swim in Wakanda Forever,” and features the song Con la Brisa by Foudekush and Ludwig Göransson in the background. The track was also featured in the film.

In the caption Lupita Nyong’o said, “Swimming to Talokan was not as easy as it looks! Safely supervised by XPT Life and #MarkRobertsFitness #wakandaforever #blackpanther #talokan #underwater #fittok #behindthescenes. Responding to the post, creator Will Packer said, “I definitely would have died 3x.” Actress Aja Naomi King said, “Ok..but why am I holding my breath watching this.”

Following this video, Lupita Nyong’o shared another clip of her working out and practicing with disc-like equipment in her hands. In the caption she wrote: “It’s like learning to fight in Wakanda…”

The underwater training sessions were especially important as many of Wakanda Forever’s key scenes take place underwater. This is because the primary antagonist of the film Namor rules and lives in the deep sea land of Talokan. Sharing a bunch of images from the sets of this mythical land, Lupita Nyong’o said, “Greetings from Talokan.”

Recently, Lupita Nyong’o also shared a video with co-star Winston Duke on the last day of the shoot. In the clip, Winston states that even though this may be his last day, his heart is forever in Wakanda. “We were in Wakanda forever, and now #WakandaForever is yours,” he said in the caption.

Lupita Nyong’o is best known for her roles in films such as 12 Years a Slave, Star Wars: The Last Jedi and Black Panther. She won the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress for her role in 12 Years a Slave.
