A scene at a child’s funeral in the new season of “Power” was a struggle for some of the parents in the cast.
La La Anthony, who plays LaKeisha Grant on the Starz show, told us of the burial for an 11-year-old character, “You are in there, and your emotions are running high — as a mom, you are feeling a way. I am looking at the eulogy of a young child, and that is not something you see often for children, thank God. Even on set, the vibe was just different.”
Meanwhile, co-star Naturi Naughton said, “For me, being a new mother, I can’t even fathom or imagine losing a child. So doing scenes like that, you do have to pull from your real emotions in order to tap in, which acting is all about.”
She added, “Some people in the real world are dealing with death, gun violence, children dying and funerals. Innocent young people are dying every day. This show touches on things that are happening in the world.”
