And all those zombie-like creatures became like family to me, especially after spending so much time together in a small town. We had an incredible special effects team, and I admit that it was a bit difficult eating and looking at everyone’s open wounds, with guts and eyeballs and such hanging out. If you do one thing well, all the time, well, that’s great.
Plus it was 104 degrees in a rather stuffy warehouse, so with the film blood, we all smelled like sweaty corn syrup. Lots of positive energy into the wee hours of the morning. But as an actor, in TODAY’S market, it would be really difficult to ride that wave with much longevity. I LOVE getting into the head, mind, heart, and body of a new character.
I’d traveled up from Baltimore on a bus at 4AM that morning to audition for an Eddie Murphy film.
They sparked up a conversation, said they were working on a project, and Richie asked for my headshot.
I loved that she was so brave and fearless and willing to take one for the team.
I also loved that she was an Army Medic, not your typical role for an African-American female.
The Rickey Smiley Show is an American television sitcom that airs on TV One and premiered September 18, 2012. Anthony Brown, Noree Victoria, Demetria Mc Kinney, Lil' JJ, Ajiona Alexus, Gabriel Burgess, Roz Ryan, and Ray J.
The Rickey Smiley Show was renewed for a 26 episode second season in March 2013, that premiered on July 26, 2013.All of these artists have INCREDIBLE character range, something that I believe every actor strives for.And a “watchability” factor that soars – once you start watching them, it’s hard (for me, at least) to tear my eyes away from these people. I shot this with Kadeem Hardison back in 2008 and it’s currently having the journey that a lot of independent films experience in “post”. So until it’s officially released, I suppose it will forever stay at the top of my IMDB page.But the way I got involved with the project was absolutely amazing.I randomly ran into R&B singer, Jon B, and producer “Richie Rich” in a pizza parlor in New York.So, to make a long story short, a series of fortunate and unfortunate events led me to a casting call, and I booked the lead role for an independent film that I shot with the cast of HBO’s “The Wire”.
