Harlem Season 2 Cast Talks Vulnerability, Sex Game, Honesty and More [Videos]

Season 2 of Harlem is again in full impact, and issues are spicier than ever. In an unique interview with Baller Alert, the forged focus on classes they’ve realized from their characters, season two recommendation, and extra.

Written and government produced by Tracy Oliver, the sophomore season picks up the place they left off: Camille (Meagan Good) has to determine her profession and love life after blowing them up final season; Quinn (Grace Byers) goes on a journey of self-discovery; Tye (Jerrie Johnson) reconsiders her future after final season’s relationship mishaps; and Angie’s (Shoniqua Shandal) profession takes a promising flip as she continues to show her “star potential” to everybody round her.

Meagan Good, Grave Byers, Jerrie Johnson, Shoniqua Shandal and Tyler Leplay joined BA for a Harlem Season two dialogue. Checkout their interviews beneath.

Camille comes off as barely egocentric when getting the issues she desires, but it surely genuinely looks as if she doesn’t wish to be that manner. How do you modify one thing about your self that you simply don’t essentially like?

[Meagan Good] “Acknowledge those things first, own them, and don’t make excuses. Even in the details, you have to own what you did and be self-aware of what was going on in your mind and how it affected other people. And then, you begin to grow from that place and make different choices. I try to be self-aware and conscious of how I affect and make other people feel.”

The forged finds themselves being susceptible a number of instances all through seasons one and two. Though it may be terrifying, what makes Vulnerability lovely?

[Jerrie Johnson] “I think it’s scary because of what we’ve learned culturally. It’s quite natural to be vulnerable. When we prevent ourselves from being vulnerable, that’s when we create dis-ease or disease internally in our body because we’re holding on to so much emotion. And so I think it’s beautiful to be vulnerable, and I encourage it. In my life, I realize many black women apologize when they cry or get emotional — I can see them wanting to express it in a big way but not wanting to take up too much space with their emotions. So I encourage all black women to take up space with their emotions and lean into Vulnerability because it adds to our collective liberation.”

[Tyler Leplay] “Vulnerability is gorgeous as a result of, beneath the service, that’s who we actually are. Particularly as a person. After we (males) have deep emotions, we frequently get put on this mild the place we’re not allowed to marry the virility that comes with a few of the power of a person. It could get checked out prefer it’s a weak spot. Nonetheless, if you’re capable of articulate how you are feeling successfully — you understand that Vulnerability helps you along with your communication and it helps you inside your relationships. You begin to understand it’s a power. It’s been a blessing to painting a personality that’s proven on this mild. Hats off to the writers

What have you ever realized about your self by way of your character’s experiences?

[Meagan Good] “One of the things I’ve learned that I really love is that plans will change, and you have to be ok with that. When we grow and change, our plans change too. You have to know If God allowed it, then it’s ok for things to change, but I also have to be excited about what’s next and know that God always had my best interest.”

[Tyler Leplay] “A lot of these experiences, whether they seem positive in the moment or even when they seem negative — it feels like it’s a loss, but it’s there to help mold you and make to make you stronger. We can’t get strong unless we face some of those things. So I feel like that’s probably what I’ve learned most through my experiences while working in this role. A lot of times, the losses are lessons.”

[Jerrie Johnson] “What I’ve learned from playing Tye is how to express my androgyny outwardly — because I’ve always felt androgynous internally, but I don’t think that was ever visually apparent. I think I’ve leaned into my more masculine energy on an aesthetic level.”

[Grace Byers] “I would say to allow myself more opportunities in life where things aren’t perfectly placed together. And to allow myself to be in it and flow through it instead of needing to understand it. You just need to go through some things — and then understanding and clarity are in retrospect. I think I definitely learned that from Quinn this season for sure.”

[Shoniqua Shandai] ” I believe what I’ve realized essentially the most from Angie is about self-value. A lot of our worth as an artist might be hooked up to what we’re doing on the time, and with Angie — she is aware of her price as a human being and as an artist. Even when it’s not mirrored within the jobs round her. Identical to being a black lady in America — a lot of who we really feel prefer it ought to be hooked up to our productiveness. Having somebody like Angie, who’s saying I may not be the best proper now, however I’m nonetheless worthy, may be very validating. It’s one thing I wish to carry with me always.”

Angie appears to fall in lust with each man she runs into. Do you assume she’ll ever have the ability to be in a long-term monogamous relationship?

Throughout the season, Angie must be sincere with the man she’s courting about his intercourse recreation. Do you assume that’s a dialog that girls ought to have with males extra usually?

[Grace Byers] “I think this is regulatory of how well you know yourself. When you know who you are and you’re able to express yourself in that way sexually — you can communicate that to people, and you want them to communicate that to you too. It should definitely be normalized.”

[Shoniqua Shandai] “Yes! Absolutely! Let’s normalize talking about your performance.”
