I was fortunate to have incredible teachers and mentors at Howard and I wouldn’t trade those experiences for anything. That training prepared me well for the journey ahead.
How was it working with Idris Elba?
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.

In the last 10 years I have seen more opportunities for actresses of color but there is still a long way to go.

I would like to see films that mimic my everyday life and those of my friends. I would like casting to reflect all of the nationalities and all of the colors that make up our lives.
What does your beauty regime look like?
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.

My style icons are Diana Ross, Cher and Cate Blanchett.
