Craig was recently seen as ‘James Bond’ for the fifth and final time in No Time To Die, after previously starring as ‘Bond’ in Spectre, Quantum of Solace, Casino Royale (for which he was BAFTA nominated) and the critically acclaimed box office smash Skyfall.

is an exceptionally talented and versatile actress with a body of work that spans award- winning theatre productions, big screen historical dramas, independent films and innovative television series. Ruth can currently be seen in Rebecca Hall’s Passing, opposite Tessa Thompson. The film is based on an adaptation of Nella Larsen’s 1920’s Harlem Renaissance novel of the same name that tells the story of two Black women, Irene Redfield (Thompson) and Clare Kendry (Negga), who can “pass” as white but choose to live on opposite sides of the color line during the height of the Harlem Renaissance in late 1920s New York. After a chance encounter reunites the former childhood friends one summer afternoon, Irene reluctantly allows Clare into her home, where she ingratiates herself to Irene’s husband (played by André Holland) and family, and soon her larger social circle as well. As their lives become more deeply intertwined, Irene finds her once-steady existence upended by Clare, where the film unfolds as an examination of obsession, repression and the lies people tell themselves and others to protect their carefully constructed realities. For this performance, Ruth has garnered nominations for a Gotham Award, Golden Globe® and SAG Award® in the category of Best Supporting Actress.
Ruth will next lens the titular role of the drama series Josephine, which follows the remarkable story of Josephine Baker, one of the most legendary Jazz performers and civil rights activists of the twentieth century. Ruth will also executive produce the project, alongside showrunner Dee Harris-Lawrence and director Millicent Shelton.
Most notably, Ruth was seen starring as ‘Mildred Loving’ opposite Joel Edgerton in Jeff Nichols’ Loving, inspired by the documentary The Loving Story. The film follows Mildred and Richard Loving, the couple behind the pivotal 1967 civil rights case, Loving vs. Virginia. The interracial couple married in June 1958 and as a result were arrested and sentenced to year in the state penitentiary— a sentence that was suspended on the condition that they be exiled from the state of Virginia. The couple spent the next nine years fighting, determined to be together in their home state. Loving Vs. Virginia became a landmark victory in the Supreme Court, as well as an important step forward in the Civil Rights battle. For her performance, Ruth’s accolades include Academy Award®, Golden Globe® and Critics Choice Award® nominations. She also won an IFTA Award for Best Actress in a Leading Role, Film.

On television, Ruth was last seen as her reoccurring role starring as ‘Tulip O’Hare’ in the fourth and final season of the AMC series “Preacher” opposite Dominic Cooper. Produced by Seth Rogen, the series is based on the hit graphic novel of the same name. This supernatural, twisted and darkly comedic drama follows preacher ‘Jesse Custer’ (Cooper), who is inhabited by a mysterious entity that causes him to develop an unusual power. Jesse along with his badass ex-girlfriend ‘Tulip’ (Negga) and an Irish vagabond named ‘Cassidy’ (Joseph Gilgun) are thrust into a crazy world populated by a cast of characters from Heaven, Hell and everywhere in between. Tulip is a volatile and hell-raising force of nature, and a gifted criminal who is not afraid to steal, cheat or kill to get what she wants.
Previously, Ruth lent her voice as ‘Mother’ in the animated program “Angela’s Christmas,” for which she was nominated for a Daytime Emmy Award within the category of Outstanding Performer in an Animated Program.

In the early part of 2015 Bobbi's voice and presence caught the attention of the legendary Andrew Lloyd Webber who later went on to personally offer her the principal role of Tomika in School of Rock at the Winter Garden Theatre and welcomed her to Broadway. At the age of 10 years old Andrew Lloyd Webber's vision for Bobbi MacKenzie continued to reveal itself as he requested that Bobbi represent School of Rock at the "Broadway at the White House" event hosted by Michelle Obama. Bobbi has since been on Good Morning America, The Today Show, The View, The Wendy Williams Show, TEDxPortland, The Tony Awards and numerous local Portland, Oregon TV programs.

During his 2016 performance in the title role of Richard III (The Gift at Steppenwolf) Thornton became the first actor to ever act onstage while wearing a robotic exoskeleton, pairing not only an actor with a disability with a character with a disability but furthermore using cutting edge technology in order to theatrically complicate the character of Richard III and its discussion around disability, ableism, and representation. The production has since been the subject of podcasts, published essays, and academic papers. Michael won the 2006 Jeff Award for Solo Performance for The Good Thief (The Gift) an hour-long monologue that marked Thornton’s return to the stage after two spinal strokes nearly killed him in 2003. Years of physical and speech therapy thanks to The Shirley Ryan Ability Lab (then R.I.C.) put —in Thornton’s words— “Humpty Dumpty back together again.” On camera, Thornton has acted opposite Oscar Winners Hilary Swank and J.K. Simmons. For two seasons, he played the love interest of six-time Tony Award-winning Audra McDonald on “Private Practice.” As a writer, Thornton recently scribed The Gift’s radio series Mud City.

In addition, his acclaimed improv show, You & Me premiered at Steppenwolf Theatre and has since played on stages throughout Chicago, in Louisville, and in Dublin, Ireland. The Chicago Reader called the show and Thornton’s improvisation “masterful.” Thornton is one of many co-authors of the cultural plan for the city of Chicago. Michael has taught at Second City, Acting Studio Chicago, Black Box, Green Shirt Studio, Columbia College, DePaul, Roosevelt, and Northwestern University. He was the Improvisation instructor (with mentor Sheldon Patinkin and comedy-partner-for-life Susan Messing) at The School at Steppenwolf for a decade.
