So many of us are excited about the movie “A Star Is Born,” from the fact that it is Bradley Cooper’s directorial debut to Lady Gaga’s starring role. Furthermore, we are all super excited to see the one and only Shangela Laquifa Wadley be apart of this project as well.
In his interview, OK! magazine’s Joe Drake gets all the skinny from Shangela about the movie. They talk about set secrets, as well as audition guidance from Jenifer Lewis and all the ‘T’ about how she got her role in this movie.
It is great that the LGBTQ+ community is being actively sought and included in television and film roles we know because they are part of our actual day to day lives. Hollywood is stepping back from casting our community in stereotypical roles for a laugh. Shangela being cast as a drag queen is something she does to make that coin and not something outlandish. She is fierce, and we are so happy for her part in this amazing movie.
