What would you say has been the greatest challenge you’ve had to face since joining the movie industry?
This is the industry of rejections. It’s like we get rejected daily and once you understand this and know your purpose and your journey and that not everything is for you, then you approach the rejections like you’d do your successes. You learn not to take things personal. I’ve always had that belief that what is meant for me would never pass me if I stay ready and hungry. The industry is somewhat unpredictable- sometimes there are dry seasons where there isn’t anything available to do and at such times, it is easy for people to get discouraged and even contemplate quitting to get a day job.
I care about longevity and as an actor you must reach a certain stage where you make sure that you oversee your career. If you’re a writer you write, or you commission a writer because there aren’t a lot of characters that are written for women in the leading roles especially black women. Som you’re always getting supporting roles or smaller roles. You’re always either someone’s wife or girlfriend. So, when there’s a big role, you all want it and not everyone will get it, so you must be prepared for all of that and those are some of the challenges. For me, it’s like dealing with the rejections and the rest is business. If you can just control your heart and protect it and focus on the why you started, then you know you’ll never have to stop.
