Back to One

A podcast about acting -- just the work. by Peter Rinaldi

Back to One, Episode 196: Dominique Fishback

Dominique Fishback talks about the characters she plays as if they inhabit her rather than the other way around. This begins to explain the immense, yet subtle, and always authentic power on display in performances such as Darlene in The Deuce, Kenya in The Hate You Give, and Deborah Johnson in Judas and the Black Messiah. Now she stars with Samuel L. Jackson in the Apple+ series The Last Days of Ptolemy Grey. She talks about the interesting way her character, Robyn, disrupted her usual psychological preparation process; where she gets the courage to fiercely advocate for her characters; repairing her relationship with her inner child; the “art of being a movie star;” and much more.
