Vixen Chat: The Cast of ‘Drumline: A New Beat’ is Ready to Tell a New Story


How was it playing a character of this caliber?

Letoya Luckett: This one was different. I love playing women in high positions, powerful positions. She’s a dean of a University and she cares a lot about the school and the students. Her priority is to make sure that the school has the funding that it needs to keep the band alive and to have a great school that people want to attend. Unfortunately some matters of the heart get involved, but she was a fun character to play. She was a laid back chill kind of girl.

How was it being on set surrounded by the band atmosphere?

Letoya Luckett: It was cool. For me the most exciting thing was the band because I’m a really big fan of marching bands. A lot of times I would come out of my trailer when I’m supposed to be on break or eating lunch and if they were filming on the field, I would sit and eat my lunch and watch them perform. That was what was most exciting to me. That’s why I was such a huge fan of the first one because I was always a big fan of marching bands. I don’t think people understand how much work goes into. It’s a lot.
