In 1999, director Malcolm D. Lee released his debut film The Best Man. The film was met with mostly positive reviews from critics and fans alike. At the time, the film featured an ensemble cast of up and coming African-American actors with Taye Diggs, Nia Long, Terrance Howard, Regina Hall, Harold Perrineau, Morris Chestnut, Sanaa Lathan and Melissa De Sousa.
After the success of that film, Lee returned with the same cast in tact for the 2013 film The Best Man Holiday. This time, the film garnered even more critical praise and audiences flocked to the theaters to see the film. The film debuted with a $10.7 million Friday total, beating Thor: The Dark World for the top box office spot for that day.
Now, nine years later, Lee is back with the cast once again, but this time on the small screen with The Best Man: The Final Chapters, currently streaming on Peacock. Along with the original cast, we are introduced to several new characters, including Kennedy, who is the daughter of Shelby Taylor and Quentin Spivey.
Kennedy is brought to life by the talented actor Mia Rose Morgan. In her first major role, Mia shows that not only can she handle the dramatic aspect of the role, but she shows her comedy chops as well. The future truly looks bright for Mia.
In the video interview below, we sat down with Mia to talk about stepping on the set for the first time, what it was like working with such an incredible cast and what, if anything she would like viewers to take away from the series after watching it.
