Actress Essence Atkins Is Back On TV

Essence Atkins with Marlon Wayans on the set of the NBC sitcom, Marlon.

When you think of actress Essence Atkins you think of fave big-screen comedies like Are We There Yet? or Deliver Us From Eva. Now, the beauty can be spotted starring alongside comedian/actor Marlon Wayans, for NBC’s new comedy series Marlon. So what’s it like working her longtime friend Marlon Wayons again? “I was drawn to working with Marlon again; this is our fifth collaboration,” shared Essence. “We’ve known each other for a really long time. I mean, we first met in 1995.” Which could explain why the two work so well together on the new sitcom! For more from our convo with Essence, check out our exclusive interview in in the September ’17 issue of Sophisticate’s Black Hair…on sale now!
