It was an honor as a black woman to stand with her in the story.”
Director and Producer Olatunde Osunsanmi told TV Line that “Everyone’s head exploded“When Abrams walked on set” because 90% of the crew didn’t know she was coming. You can just see necks breaking like, ‘What?! Stacy? What’s going on?’ I killed that.”
