Actress Nafessa Williams, who portrays superhero “Thunder” on The CW’s hit series Black Lightning, shares with SBH what it’s like to be a Natural beauty hero. “The one thing I really love about this show is that I’ve always wanted to play a superhero,” reveals Nafessa, who tells us her on-screen coif is all Natural. “A lot of the styles are Natural, no-heat protective styles. It’s really cool because when I’m playing ‘Anissa’ [my alter ego role on the show], it’s more of my Natural curls. I’ve never worn my Natural curls on TV until now, so it’s been cool to embrace that.” For more from our convo with the star, check out the April/May ’19 issue of Sophisticate’s Black Hair on sale now.
