Tavis Smiley interview

27 Mar, 2013

Newton discusses her career and role in the new DirectTV original series, Rogue, in this interview for PBS.

I have been around women who have lost their children in the most horrifying ways, who’ve lost their dignity, who’ve lost their lust for life. They’ve had it crushed out of them. That’s why I wanted to play Grace. I wanted to explore this kind of grief and turn pain into power. That’s what One Billion Rising is all about, is about turning pain to power. So I just find myself finding these projects which are dealing with these themes, and obviously it’s not just about I want to explore it.
