The attraction to this role was the powerfulness of the character. She was an inspiration to read about and Kimberly's Love for her was so great. She shared photos of Margie and spoke of all the things Margie had done for her, her family and others. I felt honored she wanted me for the job. I was so excited after the first table read, once I had met everyone, we all had great chemistry together and we're ready to jump in.
The Margie character was a great challenge And I looked forward to every work day. It was my first time working with the director, Paul Hannah and I didn't know what to expect but it all flowed so well. We all worked hard and gave our all. I loved Coco Jones energy and work ethic, she was a perfect Kimberly. The entire cast was exceptional.
Portraying Margie was a great opportunity to look into the life of another family and realize how similar we all are when we love our family. Margie opened her home, gave of her time and taught everyone how to live better lives by example. If these qualities came across in my work then I did a great job. Grandma's House brought many viewers to tears and everyone said it made them think of their grandmothers.
I looked forward to the emotional scenes on set. Everyone put their all into every scene and Kimberly's script kept the action coming and tears flowing.
I have no information on Waiting to Exhale, sorry.
-Sorry guys, Loretta has no update on a Waiting to Exhale sequel, but you still watch her in Grandma's House when it hits theaters April 29th.
