Trivia Twelve Years a Slave

The tree where Solomon sees several men being lynched was actually used for lynching and is surrounded by the graves of murdered slaves. Steve McQueen's daughter told him to hire Sarah Paulson after viewing her audition tape because she found her scary. Twelve Years a Slave was the debut as an actress for Lupita Nyong'o, and she won the Best Supporting Actress Oscar.
