Nicole Ari Parker Covers VIV magazine + Behind the Scenes Video

Nicole Ari Parker features on the cover of VIV Magazine, Spring 2012 issue. Excerpt...

On her character Blanche Dubois: “Every character is so dense and tightly woven. Blanche is verbose, her language takes you on an emotional journey. She is tremendously strong and clear and unrelenting in her view of the world. When I read the lines I feel very empowered. She holds her ground.”

On playing Blanche: “The greatest gift of getting to play the role of Blanche Dubois is that it’s reminded me to never give up. No matter if you get knocked down, stretched to your limit, lost your light and 20 very real years go by. And in some way I think that is the tragic beauty of Blanche. Even at the end, after all she has endured, she in her own special way, doesn’t give up.”

On the hardship of professional acting: “It’s hard because it’s not show art but show business, and learning how to this business, it’s a second craft and that side of it will let you down. For some actress I know the light in their eyes is now flickering instead of blazing. The industry can beat you up.”

 On feeling the hardship herself: “Luckily, I have a strong spiritual background, an incredible husband, two wonderful children. It is show art and I’m not going to let the second set of skills for the business kill the art.”

On the devastated news that daughter Sophie had spina bifida: “I grew up fast. We [Husband is Boris Kodjoe] went from being this sexy couple coming of the hit series {Soul Food} to being like paramedics. It was hovering, waiting and watching, all day everyday.”
