Fishback also shares the invaluable advice and support she received from Kathy Najimy and Jamie Foxx.

Mark my words; Dominique Fishback it’s going to be a household name very, very soon. (And if I had something to say about the Oscar nominations, it would be happening a month from now.) Fishback stars King Shakait is Judas and the Black Messiah as Deborah Johnson (now Aqua man), a young woman who is taken by Fred hampton‘s (Daniel Kaluuya) ideology and goals, and also builds a connection with President Fred on a personal level. While Judas and the Black Messiah It also highlights the extent of President Fred’s influence and the great value of his dedication to the movement; It is through the intimacy of his relationship with Deborah that the film also successfully conveys the personal interests involved in this fight for freedom.

Since I chatted with Fishback and some other members of The hate you give set in 2018, he was eager to have a long talk with the rising star about his commitment to his craft, and now that Judas and the Black Messiah is available to watch on HBO Max, that moment has finally come. Fishback joined us for an episode of Collider Ladies Night and she certainly did not disappoint; Her journey is filled with hard work, passion, and gratitude every step of the way, beginning with her refusal to let anyone else decide what she can and cannot accomplish:


“I had played basketball in high school. I played soccer. I did many things. I was the best student and I was the queen of the dance, right? [Laughs] So I was really trying to understand all the levels and layers that we have inside. If someone tried to limit me and said, ‘Oh, you can’t do theater and basketball. You have to choose, ‘I would say,’ No, I don’t. I can do everything. Why do I have to choose? So I really believed [in] All of these things were inside of me, so when I started leaving Brownsville to go to Manhattan to learn about theater, it really opened my mind as a poet of the spoken word and stage actor, and influenced me to go to Pace University. ” .

Fishback has not only spent years putting her heart into her work in front of the lens, but she’s also following the lead of those around her to strengthen the environment on set behind her:

“Donnie [Wahlberg], Method Mad on The Deuce, Jamie Foxx and Joseph Gordon-Levitt, [what] They all had in common that they celebrated the people who came with them and were encouraged. Because it is really overwhelming. It can be really overwhelming, and showing faith in someone or giving that kind of energy and that support and that kind of love, it’s something that I always carry with me and I always want to pay for it. So when I see someone new or looking around, I am ready to help. ‘Oh yeah, do you need help with something?’ I always try because I remember when I was scared and thought, ‘I don’t know what I’m doing.

If Fishback ever comes across a promising person seeking advice from the work ethics department, there’s no question that individual will be in the best possible hands. While Fishback seems to be brimming with confidence in every project I’ve seen her on, sometimes doubts arise. Here is the concern you raised to Jamie foxx Y Joseph Gordon-Levitt while doing Project power:

“I remember talking to Jamie and talking to Jospeh Gordon-Levitt about the idea of ​​sliding. How do you make sure you are not browsing? I don’t want to wake up in a month or three months and watch the movie and feel like, ‘Oh, I didn’t give my all that day,’ you know what I mean? So how do I make sure I’m not browsing? I asked Jamie if he ever felt easy because, I’m not going to lie, it felt kind of easy. The circumstances were tough, the hours, the weather, all that sort of thing, but taking advantage of Robin didn’t feel like a soul-turning event. And I remember I asked Jamie and he said, ‘Do you watch basketball?’ And I said, ‘Yes, sometimes. He said: ‘When Steph Curry runs down the court and shoots a three and goes in, he doesn’t wonder why he came in. It’s because he’s been practicing, he’s been doing it for so long and it’s in him, as if he’s in you. You’ve been doing it for so long and you have it, so you don’t have to worry about it. ‘ And I was like, “Oh my gosh! Okay, [a load] off my shoulders. And with Jospeh Gordon-Levitt, he said, ‘The fact that you’re asking about the shoreline, I don’t think anybody that’s on the shoreline is aware of asking that question, so I don’t think you can ever ask. that, you know what I mean? And I was like, ‘Ok, great.’ Because I thought, I’m not writing everything. I’m not doing all this ordeal about it, and I just wanted to make sure I didn’t waste an opportunity. ”
