Atlanta-based actor, Lindsey Blackwell, stars as Marissa on the Oprah Winfrey Network (OWN) series, “David Makes Man.”
Blackwell plays friend and classmate to the main character, David, who is struggling between focusing on his academic future and navigating the dangers of his South Florida neighborhood.
“Being in the cast of ‘David Makes Man’ was a dream made real,” Blackwell told Oz. She continued to describe Atlanta as a village that allowed and encouraged her to film throughout the Southeast. “I’ve been able to work locally and grow my résumé, which helped me prepare for [the show].”
“David Makes Man” is created by Tarell Alvin McCraney, who is known for his Academy Award winning film, Moonlight. “David Makes Man” has received three award nominations from The Gotham Awards and Critics Choice Awards, and won a Peabody Award.
