Vixen Chat: Tika Sumpter Answers Our Juiciest QOTD
VV: Will we see you in the next season of Being Mary Jane?
TS: I wish. I was supposed to be on it, my character was going to be throughout. That was going to be her friend. I love our chemistry, myself and Gab[rielle Union] and it’s such a good show. So different. It’s amazing because it’s talking about relationships and real stuff that women and men go through, and it’s good to see it from a woman’s perspective.
Now, out of all the characters that you’ve played, which one do you relate to the most?
I think the one that I relate to the most is Dee in Sparkle, because I grew up with so many siblings and you always have to try to prove yourself and find out your niche and what’s important to you. Also being close to your mother and trying to make sure that you’re satisfying whatever realm she sees you in as.
