The Odeon cinema in Streatham welcomed a number of stars last night, as the cast of Half of a Yellow Sun came together for the film’s premiere.

Thandie Newton, who plays Olanna in the film, chose a classy LBD from Osman showing off her post baby body, and wore her hair in loose curls which fell down her shoulders.


The 41-year-old gave birth to her third child in March with her husband of 16 years , Ol Parker.


Rising star John Boyega was all smiles in a stylish blue suit
