Denzel Washington, Lymari Nadal - American Gangster.

LOS ANGELES, CA - - It’s always a great occasion when a new Hispanic actor makes their debut. It’s even more impressive when the film is a major feature.

It was a blessing to work with all of them. And it’s such a great story. It’s every woman’s dream to play Denzel Washington’s wife. He’s generous, funny, and so talented. We both felt the pain of our characters.”
