Celia Rose Gooding is even more geeked than we are that she gets to continue Uhura’s legacy

More Star Trek for you! Last week I spoke to writer, producer and Star Trek: Strange New Worlds” Co-Executive Producer Akela Cooper. This week I talk with the actress who plays to Uhura, Celia Rose Gooding. I’m not sure who was more geeked about the fact that she is playing the new Uhura, her or me! We had a lovely chat and I thought I would share the short discussion on this week’s podcast.

Not only is Gooding a Tony nominated and Grammy Award winning singer and actress, but she come by it honestly as her mom is Lachanze Gooding the incredible actress and singer who won a Tony for her role as Celie in the original Broadway production of The Color Purple.
