BET.com: You Play Dawn in the Showtime Series Black monday, As we enter the third season of the show, what changes are coming to your character this season that will surprise fans?
Regina Hall: When we start the show, Don is still in prison and I think people will be surprised to see how she has survived, how she is able to use so many skills that she had outside of the pen, How is he able to use them inside. She inadvertently ends up in the music industry with Moe, which may or may not be a good thing. [Laughs]
BET.com: Don is a very wild character. Especially how have fans reacted on social media?
Regina Hall: The feedback I have received, which I have heard, has been positive. People like that he is ambitious, and not apologetic about his ambition — being like him means A black woman In the 80s. It seems to me that he gets and gets a lot of love.
BET.com: How did you approach an 80s character to do such a good job for the present?
Regina Hall: Things don’t really change that much and that’s the whole fun of the show. Many of the things that we are referring to sometimes seem ridiculous, but some of them are actually happening today. In the same way, the fight with the progress of women continues. We just try to have a lot of fun and if there is a comment, it is because 2020 is. All of this really goes to our writers who do such a good job and can allow us to improve. When we have a lot of fun going into this setting and time period and get bizarre and crazy, it is great.
BET.com: What is your connection, if any, to Don? Can you relate to him in any way?
Regina Hall: I don’t know if I can relate to Don, but I like that he is no filter Don. You know what, I have a connection. He is in the male dominated world and I have only brothers. I grew up as a single girl. I know it is to fight for space and to feel that you have been heard. Also, all my brothers are older. I definitely understand how comfortable she is and the way she ties into a boy’s world and how normal it is for her.
BET.com: What advice do you have for an aspiring actor or actress trying to fulfill her dreams in Hollywood?
Regina Hall: Study and be great in what you do. It is not the size of the role, it is just to get better at their craft. If you are able to actually take the time to do visuals, study, get great technique and practice – and patience.
I know, we are in an era where things happen a little faster, but patience will allow you to grow and learn and study so that you have a technique and practice that you can learn from. So, when you are working with amazing people, you can connect with them and still learn and work with them. I feel like I still learn when I work with people every day. It never ends but that is the fun of it.
Watch season three Black monday Which will premiere on Sunday 23 May at 10 pm ET / PT on Showtime.
