Tasha Smith did an Interview with That Grape Juice and we have that Exclusive Interview! Check It Out
TGJ: Hey Tasha! How are you today?
Tasha: I’m great, thanks for asking!
TGJ: No problem. So, let’s get right to it!
Tasha: Let’s do it.
TGJ: We’re loving the second season of ‘For Better Or Worse’, tell us how has it been for you being able to bring Angela back to life on the small screen?
Tasha: It’s awesome because we get a chance to show different dimensions of Angela and Marcus’s marriage and relationship. You get to see Angela ”the mom”, “the woman”, and “the friend”. In the movie, she was always on level 10. Then, the first 10 episodes of the show, she was on level 20. Now, this season, I feel there’s a good balance. She’s funnier, using a lot of humor, and a supportive friend. To me, she’s that chick everyone loves.
I have so much fun playing her. Every week, it feels like a new journey and experience.
TGJ: We know people probably assume that when portraying Angela, you’re really playing yourself. So tell us, do you relate more to the old Angela or the new Angela?
Tasha: I relate to the new Angela more. But, I feel like we all got a little “Angela” in us ok? We all want to say things that may not be the appropriate thing to say at the time and we all need love. That includes you too (laughs)!
TGJ: We’ve heard much about Bobbi Kristina guesting this season, but, tell us who else we should be expecting as guest stars?
Tasha: I’m not telling, you gotta stay tuned in (laughs).
TGJ: Well, can you tell us of any plans for a third season?
Tasha: We are finishing up this season now, so we don’t have our official pickup yet. But, the show and ratings are good. We definitely need people to continue watching and supporting the show. Hopefully, we will be coming back next season.
TGJ: With television on lock, we’ve heard of some new projects coming to the big screen. Tell us about them?
Tasha: I am going to be in ‘Addicted’ (Zane)- which is a tastefully done script that Billie Woodruff is directing and I get to play the role of Marcella Spencer. I’m so excited! She’s the therapist of the Zoe character and helping her through the sex addiction. I’m so excited to start filming in October.
TGJ: How much will the movie be like the Showtime show?
Tasha: Well, it won’t be anything like the Showtime series. I don’t want people to assume that’s what they’re going to get. It’s going to be a powerful story and I think it will be a wonderful thing to talk about within our community.
TGJ: Also, you’ve mentioned wanting to play Donna Summer in a biopic? Why her specifically?
Tasha: I’ve just always been a fan. I just love her story. That’s my dream. Every actor has that icon that they would love to tell the life story of. I think she’s interesting and her legacy is powerful. A lot of people may have not had insight into her journey.
TGJ: Have you ever met her?
Tasha: Nope, never met her.
