Malcolm Jamal Warner and Tracee Ellis Ross Cover Upscale
Malcolm-Jamal Warner and Tracee Ellis Ross cover the new UPSCALE Magazine where they discussed their new show “Reed Between The Lines.”
On their connection
TER: …the first moment with him was so palpable. What I experienced was a side of myself, Tracee, that I had never experienced before…doing scenes with Malcolm does not feel like acting.
MW: if you’re going to be joined at the hip, you want it to be with someone who shares the same vision and shares the same kind of integrity and values..it’s probably one of the best non-physical love affairs that I’ve ever had.
On their dual roles as leads and producers of Reed Between The Lines
MW: There’s just so much energy we put into the show as actors and producers that it’s hard to focus, at least this first season, on anything but the show.
TER: My life is moving at 100 miles an hour. My job is to take it one deep breath and slow step at a time… TER
On Girlfriends and her character, Joan
TER: I just loved that character. I’m so proud of what we did, and yet, I had such a peace when we were finished…
On Comparisons to Cosby
MJW: None of us is Bill Cosby, so we’re not trying to recreate Cosby. What we are trying to recreate is the universality and the timelessness.
