I loved, loved, loved the 2nd season of MASTER OF NONE, especially because of Denise and her background story ❤ ❤ ❤ (kat)

“Even though Arnold and Brian seem to have more lines as Dev’s friends, Denise really emerged as a fan favorite. Why do you think that is?

I don’t think people really see women that look like her on television. I also think I have a very unique way of walking through the world, a unique cadence, in terms of the way I carry myself. I think people really look at me and appreciate the character which I’m really grateful for, because you never know. But I think also, Aziz and I have a very unique chemistry. We have a very interesting vibe when we’re together whether we’re on or off screen. I think people really saw that. The biggest thing is that there aren’t many characters out there like myself, so I think because it’s me, it’s like a breath of fresh air, which is kind of cool


.Will we see Denise’s origin story in season 2?

Absolutely. Denise is in all episodes in this season. And I will just say: episode eight. You’ll get her origins story. I really think people will be happy about that, and I think they were really smart about giving her her own platform. Melina Matsoukas directed the episode and Angela Bassett guest stars, [along with] Kym Whitley. We just really had a fantastic time. I’m really excited for people to see it. We got a lot of love from those who have seen it. I pop up here and there but that’s sort of like her big hoorah. I think for a lot of Denise fans out there, it’ll be a real treat for them.I’m sure everyone’s going to want to binge watch this season of Masters of None, but I want to ask that they really check out episode eight. Like, give it some love, give it some time. Don’t be folding laundry while you watch it. Tweet about it, talk about it, share it, spread the word, because we put a lot of heart and soul into it. For me, that episode has a special place in my heart.”
