Lauren London along with her co- stars Parker McKenna Posey and Sarunas Jackson are headed to BET in a new series ‘Games People Play’ that’s set to debut after ‘Being Mary Jane’ on April 23rd.
In a recent interview with The Grio, the actress stated that she would love to play more mature roles, such as her current role as a basketball player’s wife.
“Usually the roles I’ve done before [were] like really fun and sassy and you know kind of surface roles. This was a broken wife and a woman and I feel like I’m 34, I have kids and I have lived some life that I can put into this”, stated London.
London’s character, Vanessa King, is “a loyal yet skeptical wife who married her high school sweetheart as he was being drafted into the nation’s premiere professional basketball league. Her lifestyle changed overnight as they went from college sweethearts to a power couple astride a world of money, easy sex, and glamour”, stated BET in a press release.
