Exclusive Interview by That Riverz Gurl Media, LLC
When did your acting career officially took place?
Julian: ” 2015. It just happened honestly. I was living in a very dark place after my club shut down. I had a lot of quiet time to think. Then I saw a posting for background in a pilot on TNT called “Good Behavior” I got on other sets that led me to Greenleaf. The only job I had to do was put up and take down bar stools until Oprah actually talked to me. I felt something great was going to happen. When I was coversating with Oprah, she asked me my name and how long have I been acting. I said two weeks. She asked “Two weeks and you here with me” Everyone looked at each other then laughed.”
What was your first reaction when you met Oprah?
Julian: “I was able to see the grind Oprah while growing up while others that are in their 20’s or 30’s saw the “rich” Oprah so I already knew the Oprah before she made it big”
What are new projects that you are working on?
Julian: While I am waiting for Liongate to call me back for season 3 of Greenleaf. Also in May I’ll be shooting for a new movie with Danny Glover and Loretta Devine called “Rudy Tudy” which comes out next year 2019. Then filming a film-to-TV series called “Black Kids” I am also working on my own project which is like a political drama series”
