Of 4 to 4 Dear white people The final season. How was your filming experience at this time?
Number one, gratitude. I am so grateful that we were able to make the film. I am grateful that our crew got the job in FY 2020, which we did not know if we were going to work. Also, I am grateful that we had our fourth season. Many shows don’t do that. And I’m grateful that somehow we made it through safe filming. I was excited because it was a music. I’ve auditioned for a few musicals in the past, and I’ve never booked them. I’ve gotten around, but I’ve never made a booking before. And it seemed so amazing that, “Oh, I’m already a part of this project. I don’t have to audition.” [Laughs]
I like Justin [Simien] Did. I love that it’s based on 90s R&B. I love the opportunity to say goodbye to the character I grew up with in the last four or five years. Also, this last rush with my customers really feels like a collegiate experience because you all play these college characters, but we also feel life together. We went through two insane presidential elections together. It’s crazy.
In 2020, a light was shining worldwide in the Black Lives Matter movement. Dear white people Uncomfortable but still necessary issues related to the black community are known to be discussed. Will the new season open up to racial events and discussions in 2020?
To answer your question, yes, it must be present. Shows are always topical. I think what will be interesting this season is that our show is a bit ahead of the curve. Somehow writers are always writing about things that people aren’t talking about yet. And then you can watch the show because we created this content. It’s kind of like a magical, weird thing that happens. There are some issues this season that we discussed earlier. But I think we are one step ahead of what we have experienced in 2020.
How was Sam’s role preparation this season different from the previous season?
In this season, you will see Sam’s senior year and his 10 years in the future. I had to do my own thing to find out what Sam’s fate would be in the future, who and how he was. I look at people in our society who I think are similar to Sam’s future. I think it’s interesting that Justin’s young black, type-oververchivers are entering society.
When I look at season tu, it ends in a light note, but not all roses. There must necessarily be a happy ending, to be honest. Blacks always think that we have to work really hard to achieve things. As we all have this goal; Achieve, achieve, achieve. You never get it done – you get it. But in my opinion, season 2 discovers something different.
Can fans expect a major dance or song number from Sam this season?
I want to dance more. Honestly, I miss dancing a lot. With my favorite number is John Patrick Amedori [who plays Gabe Mitchell]. I like our songs. It doesn’t necessarily qualify as an R&B song of the ’90s, but it’s a really good song, as everyone knows. I am very excited to see it.
Which one do you initially want to start your meditation journey?
It started when I was shooting Hit the floor. Katherine Bayles, Taylor Payez and I will go hot. We were trying to make sure we were flexible and got our cardio. At the end of the yoga, we lay down in a breathing position. I have learned that it is one of the eight organs of yoga. I became curious about meditation. I started going to DEN meditation in LA
Then for my th 30th birthday, I challenged myself to meditate for 30 hours in three days. Isn’t that crazy? My first acquaintance with meditation after that. I realized that I grew up in a suburb of Georgia where meditation and yoga were not accessible and were advertised as something beneficial for your mental health as well as therapy. I wanted to be a tube to be able to bring the work back to the country. That’s why I started training to teach meditation.

What’s next for you?
I’m really spending time with myself because I’ve been working since I was 14 years old. I’ve gone from project to project, playing different characters I always have to be mine and explore myself and I don’t get much time for how I’m doing. I can do that with the characters I play, which is always very fruitful and helpful, but I am taking the time to be with myself and make sure I am healthy, emotionally and mentally ready to take the next one. Steps in my journey. Whatever he is. I hope it will do a lot more with production and management in the near future, but I am open to many possibilities.
