Lupita Nyong'o found it difficult working on '12 Years A Slave'.

The newcomer, who is up for a Best Supporting Actress award at the BAFTAs on Sunday (16.02.14), admits she found it daunting when she first started filming because she was working with actors who had a lot more experience than her.

According to The Sun newspaper, she said: ''It was terrifying to be thrown into the middle with such amazing and seasoned artists.''

The 30-year-old actress still can't believe she won the part of Patsey in Steve McQueen's critically-acclaimed film and she is nominated for a gong along with co-stars Michael Fassbender and Chiwetel Ejiofor, who will also attend the ceremony at London's Royal Opera House at the weekend.

She added: ''It was incredible to be able to work with actors that I respect and trust.

''Acting is always about playing off other people.

''So to have such incredible actors to work with was ... well I'm still getting goosebumps.''

Meanwhile, the star said she cried when she was also nominated for an Oscar for Best Supporting Actress and watched the nominations broadcast on TV with her friends.

She said: ''I raised my hand up and I just closed my eyes and cried and said thank you, thank you, thank you. It was so surreal to hear my name in that context.''
