Not one person recognised her...

Lupita Nyong'o

Lupita Nyong’o, we salute you.

Oscar-winning actress and Star Wars star Lupita Nyong’o was at Comic Con last weekend, not that any of her fans will have known it – she went disguised as a Power Ranger.

You’ve got to love this video, which manages to even give the classic ‘Bryan Cranston going disguised as Bryan Cranston’ ruse a run for its money.

Soundtracked by Kendrick Lamar’s ‘i’, this shows the 34-year-old Mexican actress bouncing around the world’s biggest entertainment event and generally having as much fun as possible with her unsuspecting co-stars – the general public.

One person who spoke to Nyong’o was shocked to discover the real identity of the mystery Power Ranger.

Nyong’o – who won an Oscar for her performance in 12 Years A Slave in 2013 – will next be seen in Ryan Coogler’s Black Panther, a superhero film based on the titular Marvel character.
