My how time flies! Wednesday was the last day of my six week broadcasting class with high school students in the Upward Bound program at Tougaloo College. It ended on a high note. Special thanks to actor/singer @DathanThigpen. The Jackson State mass comm alum who now lives in Atlanta, took time out of his busy schedule to chat with my students via FaceTime. The teens enjoyed the DVD of “Madea’s Neighbors From Hell” and were ready with questions. Dathan played “Desi” and talked about how he got the role, what it was like working with executive producer/actor Tyler Perry/Madea, and he also gave career advice.
Here’s a look at the play’s trailer:
You may recall Dathan was a Sunday Best Season 3 finalist and he gave us an update. So, that said, I’m looking forward to watching the 7/19 #BETSundayBest All Stars Edition (season 8) this weekend at 7pm cst to see who makes the top 10!! #SBAllStars. Meantime…Here’s a look back at #SB Season 3….. Sanggg Dathan!!!!
