Happenings…

After closing American Son on Broadway, we packed everything up and took it to Brooklyn to shoot for Netflix.  Watching our show be tailored to fit a new medium was equally informative and fascinating.  I was chest deep in a robust pilot season at the time so it felt especially fortunate to be able to work with such an incredible team in the mornings and then go straight to read for the networks in the afternoons.

Also: Screening Alert! I’m one of the leads in a short titled Remedial Love that just made it into the Manhattan Film Festival!  It’s world premiere will be here in NYC at Cinema Village on Friday April 26th at 9pm.  Watch a clip here and get tickets here.

2019!

My contract with American Son is ending just as pilot season is beginning to take off.  It’s been a thrilling ride on my first Broadway show (to say the least). While I never went on for Kerry, I learned an immense amount from her and this experience. I’m so grateful for all the Black Girl Magic (see above!) and to be able to take everything I’ve learned into the next chapter of my journey.  What’s more, Netflix has decided to adapt American Son!  It feels good to have played a small role in such a culture shifting story and am excited that more people will get to experience its heart and weight.

In other good news, After The Wedding is set to premiere in the Opening Night Film slot at Sundance this week!  I had a wonderful time working on the film and can’t wait to see how it’s received.  I’m also more than eager to find out if my scene with the stunning and gracious Michelle Williams made the final edit!
