R&B superstar and five-time Grammy-winner Tionne “T-Boz” Watkins, who was one-third of the chart-topping group TLC, talks about her new role on DAYS in the new issue of Digest. Watkins says she was thrilled to be offered the role. “My agent and manager asked if I was interested and I was!” she enthuses. “I couldn’t believe that not only were they interested in having me on the show, but that this would be a recurring role. The role sounded amazing. I’ve always wanted to play a thug-type chick.” Though she is a performer by trade, Watkins shares, “I was nervous my first day on set, but they were so accommodating and comforting. It really helped me feel at ease and calm my nerves. Everyone was so nice and down-to-earth.” She has special praise for new co-star Kristian Alfonso (Hope). “My first impression of Kristian was that she looks so good! Also, how amazingly nice and humble she was! She was my favorite, to tell you the truth. She’s so helpful.” For more from the singer/actress, check out the new issue of Digest, on sale now, and be sure to tune into DAYS to see her in action.
