Regina Rene King is an American actress and director. She is the recipient of several awards, including an Academy Award, a Golden Globe Award, and four acting Primetime Emmy Awards, the most ever for a Black performer.
She speaks out on issues that are important to her, because when it comes to social justice, Regina believes it's vital to speak out. "We cannot become complacent," she previously told People. After winning an Emmy for her work on Watchmen, not only did she wear a shirt in honor of Breonna Taylor, but she also used her speech to make sure people had a voting plan in place. "I had the opportunity to not wear a gown and . . . a chance to visually show why it's so important to vote down the ballot. How could I not use it?"
Regina is also very aware of the power she has with her platform and is dedicated to using it to the best of her ability. "I have a little more power now, in my choices, and in my ability to amplify a message," she told the outlet. "I have things I'm very passionate about. And I feel very lucky to be able to use my art and my voice collectively."
