I remember talking to my mother and seeing Snow White and wondering if there’d ever be Chocolate Brown or something like that. But my parents were very good at making sure I had dolls that looked like me, and books with brown children in them, and birthday cards with brown children on them. They were very aware. When you discount a child from fantasy, it’s a very strong statement. You think, Wow, somebody made an entire movie with elves, and trees that talk, and things that fly, and there was no room for me.

'I toss out a few more quick questions. Director you’d like to work with? "This Steve McQueen guy seems really interesting" Food guilty-pleasures? "All of them. I’m a foodie. I love it ALL" Binge-watched shows? “Downton Abbey, Orange is the New Black, American Horror Story, Homeland, Nurse Jackie. Yeah. I watch them all.” Favorite Holiday? "I have a six-year-old little girl and I try to keep as much magic in her life for as long as possible before the world intervenes. Christmas just allows so much of that."'— Gina Torres for Bello Mag

Loved that scene at Gordon’s garage, where everyone is at each other’s throat: Gordon points fingers at both Cameron and Joe, Joe, for once, is actually innocent, Cameron defends herself and then joins Gordon agaisnt Joe, whose several misdeeds come up, Cameron punches Joe right on his face (look, he had that coming), and storms out, while Gordon looks on half pissed half fascinated (you know he’s been wanting to punch Joe some more himself).
