When did you decide that storytelling and acting was something you wanted to do?
AL: Everything means something to me. I’m an appreciator of all walks of life and subjects, so acting became increasingly interesting to me over the years. I started in music, and after a long journey there I found my way into the film world and it all clicked for me. I had found my passion.
What was your first acting role?
AL: My first role was on a show called Reed Between the Lines on BET. I was not prepared and I had no idea what I was doing but I took full advantage of every opportunity to learn.
What do you enjoy the most about acting?
AL: I love becoming a new person. When someone sees me for the first time on screen without knowing me personally, they may have no idea of what traits and mannerisms I actually possess. That’s the fun part.
What can we expect this season from Power Book II: Ghost?
AL: This season is going to be a rollercoaster. So many moments that will have you on the edge of your seat and a whole lot of DRUGS AND MONEY.
What can you tell us about your character Effie, and what’s it like playing this character?
AL: She’s stone cold man. Super dominant but mysterious. Always in control. A very calculated chaos. She’s so much fun to play. She’s always in charge and I love that.
What is the best thing about being a storyteller in your opinion?
AL: Being able to entertain people is the most rewarding part. If someone is having a hard time in life whether it be their health, job, or relationship, it’s easy to get lost in a television show. And when you do, even if it’s just for a split second, their problems disappear.
