The 28-year-old’s fashion isn’t the only thing worth noting. According to the Nope director, Keke was, in the best way, a scene-stealer in the film.
“Very early in the movie, when we meet Emerald, she comes in as this real breath of fresh air, in that she saves the day and injects this energy into this safety meeting that she is giving to this crew of a commercial,” Jordan told IndieWire. “Keke came in and did, I don’t know, probably about 14 takes. Each one of them really very wildly different, uncuttably so. But just a tour [de] force, one of these things where you see somebody like, ‘I’m going to make this choice this time and go for it.’ There’s improv in there.”
