Gugulethu "Gugu" Sophia Mbatha-Raw MBE (; born 21 April 1983) is an English actress. After studying at the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art, she began acting in British television and stage productions, appearing in the role Tish Jones, sister of Martha Jones, in the science-fiction series Doctor Who (2007), and went on to appear in American productions such as the Tom Hanks comedy Larry Crowne (2011), and the short-lived television series Undercovers (2010) and Touch (2012). Her breakthrough came with her critically acclaimed performance in the British period drama Belle (2013), for which she won the BIFA Award for Best Actress, and the romantic drama Beyond the Lights (2014). Her leading performance as the titular character in Jessica Swale's 2015 play Nell Gwynn earned her a nomination for the Evening Standard Theatre Award for Best Actress. Her performance as Kelly in the critically acclaimed "San Junipero", an episode in season three of the anthology series Black Mirror, was highly praised. She achieved further recognition for her appearances in mainstream films Miss Sloane (2016), the live-action adaptation of Disney's Beauty and the Beast (2017), A Wrinkle in Time (2018), and Misbehaviour (2020), and appeared in the role of Hannah Shoenfeld on Apple TV+ drama series The Morning Show (2019).
