OK, but for what?
Or you could give Google Image a night off every once in awhile, too.
For quoting racist trolls in order to mock them. More for you mods to clean up.
@Bail B. Baobab : Oh, OK... got it. It's cool, I know it could be hard to resist.

Congratulations. Somebody had to.
Personally, I think the rumor that her character was a descendant of Obi Wan was misstated. I think it could be interesting and not necessarily destroy my image of Obi Wan as a solitary hermit if she was raised by Obi Wan, if only temporarily. Imagine a scenario where she is a Jedi, or at least a Force-sensitive. This could be set up in Rebels, where he is forced to adopt her because he recognizes her powers. So Obi Wan would probably stick his neck out and help someone that he recognizes as having Jedi powers. He could raise her for a while, and teach her the ways of the Force, before sending her to train somewhere else and not disrupt the story of ANH.
Here we go. Reduced? Wow. Just as I mentioned before, people getting swept up in the Nyong'o hysteria and all of a sudden she is too good for the material unless the story has her more front and center. When it comes to movie message boards this is the typical talk that creeps up eventually whenever there is a discussion about her. Along with stuff like her being our queen and her making the universe a better place to live....when she's not too busy rescuing kittens from trees (reportedly the trees bow down in her presence allowing for a safe landing for the helpless, little critters). I like to refer to it as the Cult of Lupita, destined soon to crack the top ten religions of Earth. Well, at least unlike on other sites this message board hasn't descended to the point of people posting endless glamorous shots of Nyong'o that has nothing to do with the movie itself. Oh, wait.....
Beach Picture is irrelevant. I figure she play a larger role as the movie goes on but if she is a Sith, she is hardly going to get that much focus. Not to mention Ep 7 is crowded.
But, she is a great actress... clearly they will respect that and give her a role at least comparable in size to someone like Terence Stamp.

Here's to taking a leap of faith! SWVII
^ She needs to redo that photo with someone Vader-ing her.
There seems to be a tide of talk that she will indeed play a villian but what about the Obi-Offspring rumors?
What if somebody else played "Obi-Wan's offspring"?
What if nobody plays Obi-Wan's offspring?
what if Ewan Mcgregor plays Obi Wan's offspring?
I'm playing Obi-Wan's offspring.
do you have a beard?
haha, same here.
I think she is Ventress she looks a lot like her and Ventress is an alien. We don't know how night-sisters age so there is no reason why she can't be.
...And now supposedly a rumor (saw on the Yahoo main page-of all places) that the main villain is a female.....
??? Goes against other previous villain rumors. But if the previously remaining female role they were looking to fill was to be a "major" one as they said...
... Lots of
