'Luke Cage' Star Simone Missick Could Teach a Masterclass In Praying and Believing
One thing we learned from Simone Missick (@SimoneMissick): She knows how to pray. Back for Luke Cage’s second season kicking more ass (with one arm), Simone’s tapped into a higher power that’s blessed her with an in-demand career on stage and screen and loving husband (hey, Dorian Missick). Literally minutes before Simone took the stage at Netflix’s Strong Black Lead panel at the American Black Film Festival (@abff), she chatted with Yes, Girl! about her work-life-love-faith balance — yes, she’s tired but she’s thankful — and why Detroit girls never leave the house without slaying.
