There are many women who have influenced me throughout my career, but one woman who continually inspires me to dream bigger, try harder and pursue my passions full throttle is actress/writer/comedian, and all round renaissance woman, Angie Le Mar. Ms Le Mar has been on fire over the last 12 months (in the Alicia Keys sense of the word), creating a new panel based talk show called Ladies Talk, which featured the likes of Bonnie Greer and Jocelyn Brown, and aired on cable channel Vox Africa. Hot on its heels is a new spoof comedy reality TV show called The Ryan Sisters. In the series Angie plays Venessa Ryan, a radio presenter who has agreed to be followed by the cameras for a documentary being made about successful black women. Next we are introduced to her two sisters, and from the offset it’s plain to see that beyond the surface, their relationship is plagued by rivalry, jealously and contempt. Despite the heavy sounding synopsis, this serious is bloody hilarious. Check out part one above, and episode two here.
Well done Angie!
