Oyelowo on his Interracial Marriage and Connection he Feels to Film 'A United Kingdom'

Posted by Ria, 29 Nov

Being in an interracial marriage in real life, star of the film 'A United Kingdom', David Oyelowo, can't imagine how he would have survived had he been married 70 years ago. The British actor feels very fortunate to be living in this era.

Much as he acknowledges the presence of people who are not ok with interracial relationships yet, he is glad that he may never have to endure the kind of opposition that Sir Seretse Khama (played by Oyelowo) and his wife Ruth Williams had to endure. And for that, Oyelowo really admires them.

Actress Rosamund Pike plays Williams. Their marriage history because it stirred a diplomatic crisis between Britain and Botswana’s neighbor South Africa. Sir Seretse was from Botswana and Williams from Britain.
