"It's more common now to be an actor in a
multi-hyphenate way, and the industry really
supports that because I think audiences really
want to see these specific stories that are very
individual. Only I could tell a certain story, and
only you could tell a certain story. So, to have
that opportunity is great. Although [the industry]
is definitely not perfect in its inclusivity yet, not
even close. But it's come a super long way, 
I wouldn't have had the opportunities I do
now if I was working 20 years ago. I'm still being
pigeonholed in certain ways, but then breaking out
of it in other ways. I would definitely change this
type of narrative we have in the industry, where the
industry tends to say, ‘Oh, we've completely
changed and we're extremely progressive and
we don't care who we cast and we don't care
about race, or you know male, female, non-binary’
– when they kind of do. We still have a lot of work
to do because we need more people who look like
us in higher positions of power, behind the scenes
and in front of the screen. And as a Black woman, I
can see first-hand there's still a lot of work to be done.
You probably think the same. Let’s not pat ourselves
on the back yet, because it's not there."

With twisted high school comedy Do Revenge from
writer/director Jennifer Kaytin Robinson and the
release of her upcoming A24 film, When You Finish
Saving the World,on the horizon, 25-year-old actor
Alisha Boe is finally getting the screen time she deserves.
Fresh from a trip with her best friends to an undeclared
location (for reasons of protecting it at all costs), our
Autumn/Fall 2022 cover star connects over Zoom with
one of her most nearest and dearest – actor Gideon Adlon.
They talk privilege, progression and the power of karma…
