Raise your hand high if you got hooked on WGN’s Underground for the very first season? I sure did, and now it looks like the second season of Underground which is due to hit in 2017 is going to be even fiercer than the first.
Turns out the second season news for Underground is that actress Aisha Hinds will play the role of the real life Underground’s finest – Harriet Tubman – yes the superwoman that has made it to the $20 bill. Tubman’s story goes far beyond what any film or series can capture, and the fact that Underground is casting a role for her is exceptional, however.
Back to Aisha Hinds, she has been an entertainer for practically all her life, starting as a child, and of course, blossoming into one of the stars of television today. Some of her her acting credits are Hawthorne and The Shield, but I’ve honestly never watched either. This will be my very first time watching Aisha Hinds in action, and I’m assuming, she is going to rock because Underground’s casting hasn’t gone wrong yet!
Here she is below in BLACK ACTRESS talking FEAR…
By the video, she sounds very insightful, and I can’t wait to see what she brings to the role of, who I consider, one of the most powerful, if not the most powerful, women in history.
