“Beyond the Lights” is the story of Noni (Gugu Mbatha-Raw), the music world’s latest superstar. But not all is what it seems, and the pressures of fame have Noni on the edge – until she meets Kaz Nicol (Nate Parker), a young cop and aspiring politician who’s been assigned to her detail. Drawn to each other, Noni and Kaz fall fast and hard, despite the protests of those around them who urge them to put their career ambitions ahead of their romance. But it is ultimately Kaz’s love that gives Noni the courage to find her own voice and break free to become the artist she was meant to be.
Well on Friday, “The Morning Heat” spoke with the actor Nate Parker about working on the project with director Gina Prince-Bythewood and leading lady Gugu Mbatha-Raw, along with his outlook on the industry and his recent short film #AmeriCAN, which he directed.
Listen below as Nate Parker chats with “The Morning Heat” about his new movie “Beyond the Lights” which is in theaters right now and more!
