I’m writing you about Raven Goodwin who stars as Niecy opposite Gabrielle Union in the new BET drama series Being Mary Jane (BMJ). The show will launch with a telfilm on 7/2/13 followed by the series later in 2013. Goodwin is a very seasoned and experience actress having begun her career as a child actress in the indy film, Lovely and Amazing for which she won an Independent Spirit Award. She followed that up with the equally compelling film The Station Agent. For the last 4 years, she’ starred in the Disney series, Good Luck Charlie and you may also know her from her popular role as Tangie on the Nikelodeon series Just Jordan and even her run on the popular Fox comedy Glee. However, her role in Being Mary Jane takes her back to her dramatic roots as Niecy, the sassy pregnant teen niece of Union. Goodwin is funny and dramatic as you will see from the clip from Being Mary Jane which is included below. As you can see she is overweight and she is open to speaking about it along with her renewed interest in healthy eating. She will also speak out about the epidemic of teen pregnancy in minority communites and the obsession with fame and stardom many teens have. Both of these issues confront her character on BMJ. The film airs July 2, and we would love to have you speak to Goodwin ASAP to promote it. I have included a clip of her and Union below. This clip IS NOT for immediate posting on your site. You will at some point be able to post it but it’s early. We just want you to see Goodwin in action to see if you’d like to help us create interest in her show. I have also attached a recent high res pic of her. Thank you in advance, I look forward to hearing from you.
