Alfre Woodard has long been one of the busiest working actors of her generation, and she’s got four Emmys, three SAG Awards, and an Oscar nomination to show for it. Jumping into the Marvel universe, however, didn’t seem like the most obvious choice for the stage and screen vet. But she says “Luke Cage” creator Cheo Hodari Coker’s scripts were enough to warm her to playing councilwoman-turned-Harlem crime queen Mariah Dillard in Seasons 1 and 2 of the Netflix series, the latter of which premiered June 22. “If you do not feel strongly about a script, do not do it,” Woodard advises. The actor recently sat with Backstage to discuss the project, her training roots, and going toward what scares her.
With acting, specificity is key.
“It’s up to us, even if it’s within the certain parameters that we get asked to work in, to find a new expression of that type of person every time we’re asked. Of all of the billions of people born, nobody has the same fingerprints. So when you stand a character [up], our job is to find as specifically as possible what makes you different from any other person.”
