Written by: Jaimi Gray – February 20th 2020, 4:20pm pst

Actor, Producer, and Musician, Elijah Boothe stopped by BHL’s ‘Conversations’ show to talk about his new role as Travis Wolfe in his upcoming film Pink Opaque.

Boothe’s character, Travis has recently moved to LA and is struggling to finish his thesis documentary required to graduate. He also reconnects with his estranged Uncle Robin. Travis’ story is one of love, family, hardships, and life in Los Angeles which can be relatable to many transplants in the City of Dreams.

Boothe is also known for his roles as “Young Cottonmouth” in Marvel’s Luke Cage on Netflix and “Max” on Netflix’s Coin Heist. Elijah explained how he and his character Travis share a lot of similarities. “Portraying Travis has literally taught me so much,” Boothe reflected. “I had never played a character that I had so much in common with. This is a character who literally moved to Los Angeles for a dream.”

BHL’s host, Jaimi Gray also spoke with the director of the film, Derrick Perry. Perry stated that he started working on the film’s script two years prior to its release. Perry also spoke about why diversity and representation was so important for him. “It means a lot,” said Perry. “I think that Hollywood films should reflect the world we live in today.”

‘Pink Opaque’ has been featured at the San Diego Black Film Festival where Elijah Boothe received the award for Best Actor. The film also had its premiere in Los Angeles for the Pan African Film Festival at the Cinemark Baldwin Hills Theater on February 17th at 5pm and February 18th at 4:20pm.
