Gabrielle Union gushes about ‘Being Mary Jane’
Gabrielle Union can’t wait for the world to see more of what she and her co-stars can do when “Being Mary Jane” returns in January. The Think Like A Man star knows there is some serious talent on her show, and she recalled the moment “Being Mary Jane” creator Mara Brock Akil told her who would be rounding out her family.
“We were hiking and she told me Suge [Margaret Avery] and Shaft [Richard Roundtree] were going to be my parents,” Gabrielle told BET, “We have so many amazing veterans and so many amazing up-and-comers. It’s a beautiful mix.”
Admittedly a little star struck, Gabrielle also credits much of the show’s quality and level of professionalism to the new faces on set. “Everybody has something to prove and we bring it every take, every day,” she explained. “They are prepared and amazing and they discover new stuff on every take. I couldn’t have asked for more.”
