It is a Luo tradition to name a child after the events of the day, so her parents named her Lupita, because of her Mexican birth. She is the second of six children.

Sarah Paulson, Michael Fassbender, and Lupita Nyong'o in 12 Years a Slave (2013)

Attributes her career choice to British actor Ralph Fiennes. While she was a production assistant on The Constant Gardener (2005) during the Nairobi/Kenya leg of the shoot, she asked Ralph for advice on becoming an actress and he told her that it was tough, but that if acting was what she really wanted to pursue, she simply had to persevere. Eight years later, after attending a screening of 12 Years a Slave (2013) at the Telluride Film Festival in August 2013, Lupita approached Ralph afterwards wondering if he'd remember her. He did, instantly, but he had no idea that she was the character Patsey whose performance had blown him away minutes earlier.

Her father was a political enemy of Daniel arap Moi, the President of Kenya from 1978 to 2002. Her uncle Charles, her father's brother, died in a fall from a boat, possibly as a murder to intimidate Lupita's family.
