Aunjanue Ellis has long been a force on the screen and the actress reaffirmed this stunningly in ‘King Richard.’
Led by Will Smith, Warner Bros‘ critically acclaimed biopic narrated the humble beginnings of Richard Williams and the sacrifices he made to turn his young daughters – Venus and Serena Williams – into the tennis legends the world loves today.
The film also spotlighted the oft-unsung role of the sisters’ mother, Oracene Price – who was their coach too.
