Casting for the Loving v. Virginia Civil Rights Case Film!
Ruth Negga as Mildred Loving
My only main concern are the accents. They have very thick Virginia accents. Neither Negga nor Joel Edgerton (who is going to be playing Richard Loving) are from Virginia. I've watched a lot of footage of the Loving family and one thing that always stood out to me was the warm of their accents. I hope we can get that in the film.
But other than that I am excited to see how they go about telling their historic story.
