Tiffany Rose interviews British actor Gugu Mbatha-Raw for her movie Free State of Jones.

During the interview they discuss how much Gugu knew about Newton Knight (on whom the movie is based), the American Civil War in general and how it was working with Matthew McConaughey and Director Gary Ross.

They also talk about how the movie will appeal to British audiences and finally discuss working on the live action Beauty and the Beast which is coming to cinemas later this year.

Free State of Jones is out on the 30th of September.
