Acclaimed actress Tasha Smith, from the hit show Tyler Perry's For Better or Worse which airs on OWN, will host two upcoming acting workshops one in Atlanta and another one in New York. The Atlanta workshop will take place on Saturday, July 12th, and Sunday, July 13th, 2014 at The Balzer Theater at Herren’s 84 Luckie Street NW, Atlanta, GA. 30303. The New York event will take place on Saturday, June 14th and Sunday, June 15th, 2014 at the Roy Arias Studios & Theaters. Scholarships are available and some students may receive their registration back if they do well at the workshop.
The workshops are two day events where each day students learn different emotional prep exercises, instrumental exercises, character development, scene breakdown exercises and more! Each student is required to have a 2-3 minute monologue prepared.
“TSAW workshops are something I love dearly. You come out to the event and I feed you and I teach you the techniques that I learned that have helped me become the actress that I am today. Please tell your readers if they are interested in attending to register at my website www.tsaw.com .”
Smith also dished about the new season of For Better or Worse. Last season of For Better or Worse ended with another character Leslie, played by Crystle Stewart, being attacked by her stalker. This season her ex-boyfriend, Joseph Jetson, played by Jason Olive sensing she is in danger goes to look for her. So of course I asked her the question everybody wants an answer to… “Is Joseph going to find Leslie and save her?” Smith laughed “Well I can’t tell you that but what I can tell you is that you are going to have to tune in to find out!”
I told her my readers wanted to know why it took so long for the show to come back from hiatus. “Well there are several other shows on the network and they have to have time to air but the good thing is people have been waiting on this new season and we are really excited about that!” said Smith. She also mentioned that they are shooting more episodes in August so there should be plenty to keep us watching.
In speaking of her character ‘Angela’ I asked Smith if she thought that one day ‘Angela’ would mature and stop accusing Marcus of wrong doing all the time. “Well that really is a Tyler Perry question but what I think makes Angela suspicious is she holds on to the past and that creeps up into her present relationships.” What she loves most about playing ‘Angela’ is “she is honest, very courageous, tries to figure things out and says what is on her mind. She really is a fun character to play.” In terms of what to expect this season for Angela all Smith would say is “I can tell you this…there are going to be a lot of twists and turns for Angela this season and you don’t want to miss one episode.”
Smith is married to author and manager Keith Douglas. She has five “bonus children” and states that everybody gets along. “Listen I love my bonus children and their moms. We spend holidays together, we go on trips together, I am so grateful, blessed and very happy. “
