The actress was styled in outfits such as retro trousers, bucket hats and more, which breaks the norm of constantly having women in dresses.

“In this industry, I had to learn how to do small talk and stuff, because I guess I would kind of come off cold to people because I didn’t really know how to start conversations. I remember my stylist was like, ‘You come off kind of cold. People think you’re mean because you don’t talk.’ when really I was just too nervous”.

Speaking about the impact she hopes the film would have on society, she said, 

“I hope this is a revelation. First of all, telling Black women’s stories is huge for me. When people walk away from this film, I want them to feel the way I felt making it. I looked at the way Billie stood up to the government and it just made me think, ‘I want to get people to grow, to not be afraid of the system’”.
