Stupid lucky. I mean… I’m always continually humbled, even going into Season 3… It feels like yesterday I was a hungry, starving, actress living in LA, hoping for a job. And so, I always have kind of in the back of my head, knowing that this could be taken from me at any moment. So I’m really grateful. I’m grateful that I can come to conventions in Baltimore and people will come to listen to me talk. I’m terribly boring when I don’t have a script. So, I’m really, really blessed to be in this position. And, you know, I wanted to be a part of a job that would help change the future of television and just being in this role I feel like I’ve had that opportunity, just watching the climate change in television and seeing more Black women be leading ladies and ingenues. It’s really–I feel proud to even be a part of that.
Candice Patton. Q: How lucky do you feel to be on the show? Because it’s gotten such great reception. I mean, it’s an amazing show.
KXAN, a local Austin news channel, reported on Renee Boschert’s story as she traveled to New Hampshire to confront Ted Cruz directly on his climate change denial. Renee lost her home in the devastating floods last May in Wimberely, TX, which were fueled by the effects of climate change on extreme precipitation. However, Ted Cruz continues to deny climate change, claiming that the scientists, not the politicians, are the ones with a “political agenda.”
