I've always wanted to work with Blair Underwood, and finally the timing was right. I have a tremendous amount of respect for him. I think he's a hugely underrated actor in Hollywood.
What is important to me about my movies is that the stories and messages are for anyone. Anyone who needs to learn about forgiveness will enjoy it no matter who they are.
There's a huge demand for my entertainment, and I can't meet the need. So I decided to try a TV show to reach as many of my fans as possible.
It's schizophrenic, that's how I describe it. It's all over the place, man. It's joy, it's happy, it's sad, it's everything. It's just an emotional roller coaster, you know? Even the plays themselves, you come to see them and it's like a stand-up comedic routine. I'm breaking the wall. I'm talking to the audience. It's theater. It's some of everything. It's concert.
I know my audience, and they're not people that the studios know anything about.
Hollywood is finally waking up to the fact that people who go to church also go to the movies. I'm not sure what took them so long to see that, or how long they'll keep it up.
I feel so honored and blessed to be in a position where I can give. Had it not been for the perseverance and vision of the thousands who came before me in the 100 years of this legendary organization, I would not be in the position I am in today.
Lionsgate is my family, the home for all my movies and videos...and they've given me exactly what you want in a home: a supportive environment and the room to grow.
I was unhappy and miserable during the first 28 years of my life...The things that I went through as a kid were horrendous. And I carried that into my adult life. I didn't have a catharsis for my childhood pain, most of us don't, and until I learned how to forgive those people and let it go, I was unhappy.
I wanted this house to be vast. I wanted to make a statement, not in any grand or boastful way, but to let people know what God can do when you believe...I don't care how low you go, there's an opposite of low, and as low as I went I wanted to go that much higher. And if there was an opposite of homelessness, I wanted to find it.
I was watching the Oprah show one day and she said that it's cathartic to write things down, so I started writing down the stuff that was happening to me. I started using different characters' names, because if someone had found my journal, I didn't want them to know I had been through that kind of stuff. That's how my first play 'I Know I've Been Changed' started, which features a character who confronts an abuser, forgives him and moves on.
There's nothing like real forgiveness, a deep-down forgiveness where you don't hold any grudges against people. I forgave everybody for the things they didn't know and for the things they didn't know to do.
My theater productions were designed to be a bridge between the traditional urban theater circuit, pejoratively referred to as the 'chitlin' circuit' and a more traditional theater format.
Don't stop. Narrow your focus to one idea, and make it work. That will give birth to all of the others. All you can do is plant the seed and water it.
Anything you want is possible.
When a seed is planted in the ground, all you can do is water it and believe. That is what allowed me to be in this position right now, I would not stop believing.
The question that a lot of people ask me all the time is how did you make it? The truth be told, it was nothing but the grace of God.
You know what? That's a high-brow comment. It comes from a certain culture or certain kind of Black person. But, what is clear and obvious to me is that there's a disconnect between those type of people and African-American Black folks, because I can take you to my neighborhood right now and you will see 20 of those women. They're not stereotypes. They exist. They're real. And people think that they don't exist.
