A behind-the-scenes film for Black Panther: Wakanda Forever has a breathtaking underwater scene with Mabel Cadena as Namora.

Online, you can watch a video of Lupita Nyong’o practising her lines for “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever.” On Saturday, the actress posted a TikTok video of herself swimming with weights. The director said Nyong’o would need to learn to swim for the film, therefore a training video of the actor was made available online.

N’yongo highlighted that acting underwater is on a “whole other level” compared to her former work during an early November interview on “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.” She wasn’t the best swimmer to begin with, so that didn’t help.

Before I painted that painting,” she remarked. “Ryan asked me, ‘How fantastic can you swim?’ on a scale of one to ten,” I texted back. Her reply was, “At most, I might get four.” Since I’d panic and swim like a dog in water.

She said she went to extraordinary measures to prepare for her movie role. She wanted to improve her lung capacity, so she looked for XPT Life, an underwater weight training programme. “You have to learn to push through your fear”

Not only did Nyong’o have to learn how to swim before production began, but so did the rest of the cast and crew.

Before filming “Wakanda Forever,” neither she nor her co-star Tenoch Huerto (Namor) nor director Ryan Coogler (Black Panther) could swim.
