‘Sleepy Hollow’ star Nicole Beharie: Kerry Washington ripped open ‘hole’ for black actresses

A wonderful interview with one of the stars of Sleepy Hollow, Nicole Beharie.
I especially enjoyed the comment she made about Kerry Washington and Shonda Rhimes.

 

She believes Washington’s accomplishments enabled the prospect for her in this new role.

“Absolutely, without a doubt,” says Beharie. “She just literally, her and Shonda Rhimes with Scandal, just ripped open that hole…They made it known to the industry that this is possible. I’m really glad and I’m totally rooting for her. I love, love, love her work.”

 

I’m sure many of us agree with Nicole on that. 🙂
