'I toss out a few more quick questions. Director you’d like to work with? "This Steve McQueen guy seems really interesting" Food guilty-pleasures? "All of them. I’m a foodie. I love it ALL" Binge-watched shows? “Downton Abbey, Orange is the New Black, American Horror Story, Homeland, Nurse Jackie. Yeah. I watch them all.” Favorite Holiday? "I have a six-year-old little girl and I try to keep as much magic in her life for as long as possible before the world intervenes. Christmas just allows so much of that."'— Gina Torres for Bello Mag

More Holy Week spam! 

This was a new piece for me this year: Purcell’s “Hear my prayer, O Lord.” I love the many, many moments of dissonance in this piece, as well as the chromatic motif on the word” crying. It’s almost painful, but it hurts so good. Basically, Purcell was a genius.
