On the most challenging aspect of being an actress: The most challenging aspect of being an actress is being a single mother while navigating my career. I am a mother first.
On the most rewarding part about being an actress: The most rewarding part of being an actress is having my performance touch or inspire my audience.
On why working with Idris Elba is so terrible: Working with Idris Elba is so terrible because he’s so hard to look at !!! Idris is a wonderful human being. We have great chemistry and have become the closest of pals. He flew from London to see my play in Los Angeles. We truly support each other and I’m so excited about our movie coming out in September No Good Deed.
On her beauty regime: It’s important to keep my hair healthy and strong so I wrap it every night. I give my face a rest from make-up when I can. I make sure I wash my face every night before bed and moisturize, moisturize, moisturize.
