Aunjanue Ellis is renowned for illuminating screens with her transformative performances. And her stunning portrayal of Oracene ‘Brandy’ Price in ‘King Richard’ serves as yet another reminder of why.
The Warner Bros. production chronicles the narrative of Richard Williams – the father of tennis megastars Venus & Serena Williams. Ellis plays their mom.
Pushing past the obstacles of humble and harsh beginnings, Richard (played by Will Smith) and Oracene steer their family to the highest heights and etch their names in history.
With praise raining in by the day for the Reinaldo Marcus Green-directed film, Oscar buzz is gaining volume.
That Grape Juice‘s Lettija Lee sat down with Emmy-nominated Ellis ahead of the film’s release.
Watch above and be sure to check out ‘King Richard,’ which is out in theaters now.
