Vixen Chat: Being Mary Jane’s Latarsha Rose Talks Working with Gabrielle Union and Tackling Mental Illness


2013 BET Awards - Ford Red Carpet

VIBE Vixen: What’s been your biggest career obstacle?

Latarsha: Myself. The pressure that I put on myself, those moments of self-doubt or things of that nature. Being my biggest critic. Often times, it is learning how to get out of my own way.


What do you love most about your job?

Going to work and getting to play a character and every aspect of it.


Who do you look up to in the entertainment industry?

There are so many actors out there who I look up to. There’s a huge array of people–everyday you can be inspired by someone’s work. I would say Cate Blanchet is someone who I think is really fascinating as an actor. Penelope Cruz–I’m really attracted to her work and definitely Phillip Seymour Hoffman and his capability to just transform. I really admire an actor with the ability to transform themselves.
