Kerry Marisa Washington is an actress.
Kerry Washington has a lot to talk about with Marc, but it’s appropriate that they spend the first portion of their conversation singing the praises of Lynn Shelton. Kerry talks about what Lynn brought to Little Fires Everywhere, but they also discuss how the treatment of race was different on the show than it was in the book and why that adjustment was so important to Kerry. She tells Marc about her childhood in the Bronx, her feeling of being “the other” in high school, and her determination to tell stories that amplify voices that are otherwise unheard. See for privacy information.
Bill’s guests are Kerry Washington, Jim Carrey, Thomas Chatterton Williams and Bari Weiss. (Originally aired 7/31/20)
