Bern Nadette Stanis Reflects on the Evolution of Thelma | Good Times 50: Still Golden

Bern Nadette Stanis certainly opened the door for generations of Black actresses who followed in her footsteps. But, being the first, isn’t always easy. In a digital-exclusive interview with TV One, she shares how her on-screen mom, the late Esther Rolle, advocated for her and gave her character a voice, which created space for the only Evans daughter to blossom throughout the legendary series. Join us for a 3-day marathon in honor of the 50th anniversary of GOOD TIMES, starting Friday, Feb. 9 at 9p/8c, only on TV One.
