When the two ladies from Marvel's Black Panther sat down with E! News' Justin Sylvester, they couldn't help but gush about each other's acting skills.
Nyong'o praised Gurira for her talents, explaining, "Danai is fierce, but Danai is also a very skilled actor and she is able to put her fierceness into the work she does." Nyongo then went on to describe Gurira's character as "iconic" and "memorable."
"Danai breathes fire into her character," Nyong'o added. "Really, straight up like a dragon."

This elicited laughs from Gurira, who said, "I always wanted to be a dragon."
It was then The Walking Dead actress turned to gush about her co-star, applauding Nyong'o for her "smoothness to how she delivers a character."
The leading ladies also joked about the "girl crush" they have on each other.
"Unfortunately, we're straight," Gurira quipped.
