“Claws” Season 2 Red Carpet Premiere in Atlanta Ga

Published

on

Several fans and various media outlets had an opportunity to meet with the cast of Claws for their season 2 red carpet premiere. The Claws cast consist of Niecy Nash, Jimmie Jean Louis, Karrueche and more. The event took place on May19, 2018 at the Regal’s movie theater at Atlantic Station at 6p.m

I had  the pleasure of speaking with both Jimmie Jean Louis who is a Haitian actor and model best known for his role as “the Haitian” on the NBC television series Heroes; and  received  the Africa Movie Academy Award for Best Actor In Leading Role, and is now apart of one of the new and hottest tv shows, Claws. During the Claws red carpet, Mr. Louis gave a bit of insight on the obstacles he had to come over come due to being a black man from another country entering into the entertainment industry, he said he believed this industry was his way out of poverty so he took it.

I also had the pleasure speaking with the gorgeous, Emmy Award winning actress, Niecy Nash. She too expressed her opinion on overcoming obstacles in such a competitive industry. “You have obstacles in any industry as a black woman but you have to have intuitiveness, believe what God told you to do in your life and push forward with that thing no matter what,” Niecy responded. The actress further explained that’s what she did, and then ended with a word of advice by simply stating, “Make sure you know the difference between the call over your life and a hobby.”

In conclusion, both actors were filled with energy and not only gave insight about some of their personal life views but expressed their thrill for the second season of Claws; which, will air on Sunday, June 10 at 9/8c, the network announced on Thursday. Neither actors spoke solely on the new season of Claws to save from spilling the tea. So be on the lookout. It’s a show you don’t want to miss.
