“I always doubted auditioning because of my weight.
I’ve always acted and pursued theater – it was something I had always wanted to do when I was young. But I felt I would be rejected because of my physical appearance. Orange is the New Black has given me the opportunity to show that I have curves and I have talent too. It’s been a battle, you know, because I’ve never been skinny. But I’ve embraced it. Now I have the opportunity to show everyone that this is sexy. I can dress in the same attire as someone else and carry myself in a sexy manner, a beautiful manner and a prideful manner. What matters is how I play the role – not my size.”

reasons why james baldwin is my favorite writer and one of my favorite humans.
This is evolution. This is progress.
Co writer of My Last Day Without, Chris Silber and wife. The movie MLDWY was inspired by their love story. Unfortunately this past November his wife died. God Bless him and his children.
The movie was cute, I loved it. Hopefully it will be on DVD soon and that soundtrack too, it was great. I will post when both are available. And Stefan Schaefer, who is the co writer of the movie and soundtrack is also married to a black woman. He and Chris are talking about making another swirl movie. I will keep you all posted on that as well.
