Aldis Hodge says when he was 14 he told his agency he wasn’t taking any “more thug or athlete roles”: “My frustration with the industry was that what was normal and what was actually real was not being portrayed”
Aldis Hodge says diversity is a necessity: “You cannot imagine an authentic Black voice if you yourself are not Black. You can write a great character, you can write a great story, but if you’re looking for an authentic Black voice, get Black people” #REPRESENT
Aldis Hodge: "Enslavement turned into the prison systems... We didn't create the hood, we were pushed into a particular space and somebody else called it that for us... They gave us the title of being lazy. They gave us the title of being lethargic, & mean, & cruel, & violent"
