Very excited to appear on one of my favorite podcasts, @2dopequeens. Especially an episode with such a phenomenal title. Thanks to @msjwilly @dopequeenpheebs and @ilanusglazer for having me.
Nelsan's manager shared this statement via The Hollywood Reporter: Nelsan’s father has bravely agreed for me to share the circumstances of Nelsan’s heart failure. Nelsan has suffered with drug and alcohol abuse for years. After many stints in rehab, Nelsan attempted to withdraw from alcohol on his own. According to his father, during his withdrawal from alcohol he had a blood infection, his kidneys shut down, his liver was swollen, his blood pressure plummeted, and his dear sweet heart raced out of control. On the morning of Saturday July 8th, after four days in Woodhull Hospital, Nelsan was pronounced dead. Nelsan was a gentle, generous and kind soul. He was a father, a son, a grandson, a brother, a nephew, and a great friend to those that were lucky enough to know him. Nelsan was ashamed of his addiction and thus was reluctant to talk about it during his life. His family, however, believes that in death he would want his life to serve as a cautionary tale in an attempt to help others.
This is Group 33- my class at Juilliard. I was privileged to have had Nelsan Ellis as a classmate and cast mate for 4 years. He walked in the door full of the talent and charisma you saw on "True Blood" and in other indelible performances. What you may not know is how kind, sincere, sweet and silly he was. He had the cutest laugh I've ever heard. I'm lucky to have known him. Love you, Nelsan.
I forced @mynamesmitch to sneak into Wild Card Boxing and then demanded he take a surreptitious photo of me.

Had to wear a party dress for the premiere of GLOW!! So proud of @officialalibrie and co-creator Carly Mensch. Two of my favorite people made television magic together.
My grandpa was my dad for all intents and purposes. Here he is- guarding over me as I sleep, kitten on tummy, arm resting on a pile of stuffed animals. He would do silly voices, sneak me candy, pretend to be asleep when we were annoying him & generally be the best. He held your hand so tightly that we called it, "the claw." I think a lot of grandpas & family members fill in the gaps for biological dads who are ill-equipped or unable to parent well. I'm so grateful that Papa made it to 95 but, boy, do I wish he was still here with us today.

I have learned about so many of the women of early Hollywood from the Women Film Pioneers Project from @columbia. Here's what they are about: Women Film Pioneers Project (WFPP) is a freely accessible, collaborative online database that showcases the hundreds of women who worked behind-the-scenes in the silent film industry as directors, producers, editors, and more. Always expanding, the database features career profiles on each pioneer, longer overview essays on national cinemas and occupations, still and moving images, and archival and bibliographic resource materials. The goals of WFPP are to jumpstart historical research on the work of women filmmakers from the early years of cinema, ending with the coming of sound; to facilitate a cross-national connection between researchers; to reconfigure world film knowledge by foregrounding an undocumented phenomenon: these women worked in many capacities.
