Chatting It Up With…

A Madea Family Funeral’s KJ Smith!

With appearances on hit shows like Queen Sugar, Black-ish and Lethal Weapon, actress KJ Smith is getting Hollywood’s attention. Next up for this rising star: a big-screen turn with Tyler Perry’s iconic character, “Madea,” in A Madea Family Funeral. “I play the role of ‘Carol.’ Not only am I dealing with a death in the family—I can’t say whose death—but I’m also dealing with my relationship with my significant other, I’m dealing with a relationship in the family, there’s a lot of family drama and I’m not happy at all,” divulged the star about her role in the film which hits theaters March 1. As for her look in the movie, she tells us, “I rocked a short little swoop cut.” For more from our convo with KJ, check out the March ’19 issue of Sophisticate’s Black Hair…on sale now!
