Yvonne Orji is living her life like it’s golden!
The American-Nigerian actresses joined a host of small screen’s leading ladies for The EDIT by Net-A-Porter‘s Annual Women in Television issue.
Yvonne looked sensational in a black Solace London full-length gown and Kenneth Jay Lane earrings posing with Evan Rachelwood, Nicole Richie and Maggie Gyllenhaal for the stunning photo shoot.
In a refreshingly honest interview following the cover shoot, the four of them discuss big issues facing Hollywood right now including antisemitism, sexism, and rape on and off the cameras.
Being the only woman of colour on the cover, she talked about diversity especially in the movie industry:
A lot of times it’s like, ‘OK, we have to cast a person of color.’ Then you read the role and it’s not written for a person of color, they just took a character [at random]. So then [you have to ask], do you have a person of color in the writer’s room? Someone who can say, ‘Hey, in real life, this person would actually say this.’ And the hair and makeup [artists], have they done hair and makeup for a person of color? The important conversation to have around diversity is [that it’s] not just the face that you see.
