Personal Quote:

[on "Places in the Heart"] I have a rural background. I was born in Georgia, and my grandparents have a farm in Georgia. My grandparents have influenced me a great deal in my portrayal of Moze. My grandfather is ninety years old. When I'm around him, I see a sense of history. He's lived through so much. My grandparents are do beautiful; they come from the earth. See more »
