Earlier this week I worked with Actress Tessa Thompson. You’ve seen her as one of the stars of Tyler Perry’s For Colored Girls and on the CW’s Veronica Mars. Now, you can catch Tessa Thompson going back in time to the 1860′s on the BBC America show Copper. Thompson plays Sara Freeman, who in season one tragically lost her brothers during the draft riots. Copper airs on BBC America this Sunday night at 10pm.
Tessa was so warm and friendly, I felt that I could ask her a question that had been on my mind — What was the very realistic stuff they gave her to throw up when she was suffering from sever morning sickness in Copper? She told me that it was two varieties of cold Campbell’s soup mixed together, which tasted so bad, that she couldn’t wait to spit it out! Haha!
