I am not sure how I missed this but OWN’s mega-church drama “Greenleaf” has been renewed for a second season and I must say it is well deserved! I have thoroughly enjoyed watching the one-hour series on Wednesday nights and in particular actress Lynn Whitfield as the family matriarch—Lady Mae Greenleaf.

I don’t know if you caught last week’s episode of her with actor GregAlan Williams but she played the hell (no pun intended) out of that role. The intensity in her eyes had me transfixed and I kept watching that scene over and over and thinking to myself, “she did that!”

Check out Ms. Whitfield’s recent interview with “Access Hollywood Live” below where confirms the show’s renewal and dishes about playing her infamous character. She also talks about the show’s success and how she unknowingly prepared for the role.

Ms. Whitfield should get an Emmy nomination for work on this show! #realtalk
