Cynthia Erivo Responds To Backlash Over Her Role As Harriet Tubman + Talks EGOT & Aretha Franklin

Cynthia Erivo sat down with Ebro in the Morning to discuss the backlash over her being casted to play Harriet Tubman in her new film. The backlash comes from her origins as a British accident with a Nigerian background.

She details her experiences as a black woman growing up in Britain, her feelings on foreign actors playing American roles, but that’s not all.

She discussed the possibility of her becoming the youngest EGOT winner ever, and her next role as Aretha Franklin in an upcoming biopic.

Harriet is in theaters today.
