Is anyone else amused that Bianca Lawson is playing a character named Darla?

One detail that keeps striking me - Blue, the little boy, plays with what appears to be some kind of Barbie-like doll, and it's entirely unremarked. That's just his favorite toy, whatever.

OMG Thank you! I tried to remember who she was and couldn't place her. (Then again, I can't place anyone if they put a head on or take their glasses off :)

I liked the Barbie doll playing, but I hated the kid's acting enough to make me not want to see him...

Oh, thanks for reminding me to add this to my list.

Is Bianca Lawson playing adults at last? She was playing teenagers for ever.

Hahahaha she's 37.

Huh. Apparently her dad married Beyonce and Solange's mom last year.

I love that show so much! It's just so beautifully shot and rich and takes its time. Ava DuVernay is a genius. And nothing she does is unintentional, especially portraying the full spectrum of black identity - including Blue (who I love) and Kenya the doll (see http://www.latimes.com/entertainment/tv/la-et-st-queen-sugar-barbie-doll-duvernay-20160906-snap-story.html unless you're wary of vague spoilers for future seasons)

Also I swear Bianca Lawson has a portrait in an attic somewhere aging for her!
