Actors Lance Gross, Lil’ Mama and Tami Roman with Director Tasha Smith (Cast of Highly Acclaimed Hit Movie “When Love Kills”) Grace SHEEN Magazine

Greenville, SC, September 02, 2017 --( Style like many forms of art, comes from the imagination of innovators. In the September/October version of SHEEN MAGAZINE, they pay homage to the brilliant work of style geniuses and creative minds across the world. This very intentional move is to showcase new and familiar faces via their latest projects and fashions in the “Style from the Director’s Chair” edition. The September/October copy pulls readers in and gives them a “behind the scenes” view from the cast of “When Love Kills: The Falicia Blakely Story” led by the ingenious Actress/Director Tasha Smith. The star-studded WLK’s cast: Lance Gross, Lil’ Mama, and Tami Roman, share candid moments on set addressing the challenges (and rewards) of playing their respective roles, and how it has impacted their lives. When asked about Smith, “I think what she teaches her actors is: how to find it yourself, how to dial in, tap into whatever emotions are necessary,” states Roman. “Why Did I Get Married” star and “Empire” regular, Smith discusses her exciting transition from on-screen to behind the scenes with her first directorial debut. She also speaks on the relevancy of the twisted love story of Falicia Blakely and how it relates to women today. “I wanted to show some humanity about the tragic mistake that this young girl made because of her need to feel love. Like Falicia, some girls can get caught up and end up being manipulated in their minds because of their lack of self-love. I just wanted this movie to show (and warn) young girls to beware of the Dino’s out there,” Smith says.
