Harriet’s Cynthia Erivo Talks About Being a Leader in an Ensemble Film

Cynthia Erivo rocks a feathered dress while attending the Harriet screening during the 2019 Urbanworld Film Festival on Wednesday (September 18) at the AMC Empire 25 in New York City.

In a recent interview with Collider, the 32-year-old actress opened up about being the lead in an ensemble film and how she takes on the role of a leader.

“It means a lot. I take it very seriously. I do believe that if you’re in the number one position then your job is not just to play the lead role, your job is to facilitate everyone else on set. Trying to make sure that everyone else is comfortable, lead by example. So you know, making sure that I’m prepared, making sure that I’m ready to work, making sure that I’m watching out for everyone else, making sure that I can be a voice for those who are maybe are too afraid to ask for something or too afraid to speak about something. That’s where I see myself,” Cynthia said. “My mood can change the moods completely, so my responsibilities are to be aware of that on set.

Cynthia‘s co-star Leslie Odom Jr. added, “She does it better than almost anyone I’ve ever seen. She’s extraordinary at it. It’s a big job.”

FYI: Cynthia is wearing a Markgong dress and Christian Louboutin shoes.
