BTWF: Charlayne Woodard on Taxi
July 23rd, 2018 under Before They Were Famous, Ryan Murphy, Taxi. [ Comments: none ]

Before Charlayne Woodard was a dance teacher on Pose making dancers’ dreams come true, she was driving a taxi in NYC while hoping to make it as an actress. She looks the same now as she did when she was 28 in that 1983 episode.

Yesterday, when I was watching Pose, she made a facial expression that made a lightbulb go off and I knew where I knew her from. Taxi is my favorite show, so I have seen every episode more times than I should admit. And yet, it was her one episode that really stood out for me, enough so I was like that Nina from the episode where is obsessed with Alex. If you have never seen it, then watch it above. She really hit it out of the park with her performance. I wish I could be as happy as her character.


Pray Tell, Pose will be the Queen of the ball for a second season

What seemed like a no brainer took forever to do, but FX finally did it today. They picked up Pose for a second season. I think it is their best show since Nip/Tuck. Which was launched Ryan Murphy into the producer that he is today.

On that note, he wrote this about the renewal, “The category is: SECOND SEASON. Congrats to the cast and crew of @PoseOnFX who worked so hard to make history. And a special thank you to John Landgraf at FX and Dana Walden at Fox for believing in this special project and this community so much.”

That community is the transgendered and gay community during the ’80s in NYC. They had come so far since Stonewall, but there was a new setback that no one could expect. One that was taking away their friends and family, and it is called AIDS. It serves as a reminder of how far we have come, and how much further we still need to go.
