- The Last Days of Ptolemy Grey star Dominique Fishback has been talking about her role opposite Samuel L. Jackson.
- While there was a possibility of being overawed by the role, Fishback says that wasn't a problem thanks to her character.
Dominique Fishback, star of Apple TV+ show The Last Days of Ptolemy Grey, has been talking about the potential fear of working opposite superstar Samuel L. Jackson. Or to be more accurate, the lack of it.
The Last Days of Ptolemy Grey is an Apple TV+ show starring Jackson as the lead character with Fishback alongside. And while there was the potential for her to be overawed by the prospect of working with one of the biggest names in the business, Fishback told Variety that wasn't the case at all. And it's all thanks to her character.
The Last Days of Ptolemy Grey is based on Walter Mosley's book and reportedly took Jackson 12 years to make. He wanted to avoid it being a 2-hour movie, with Apple TV+ giving him the go-ahead to create a six-episode show instead.
All six episodes of the show are available to stream on Apple TV+ right now and it's a great watch. Those with an Apple One subscription bundle can enjoy it, too.
