A very happy 100th birthday to one of my all-time favorite artists and biggest inspirations @natkingcolemusic. One of the greatest vocalists, jazz pianists, showmen, entertainers, EVER. A true pioneer and hero. I've always loved how when you listen to Nat sing, you can hear him smile. I encourage all of you out there to do a deep dive on Nat- his history, his impact, his television show, and of course, his music.

Any @sagaftra actor can attest- it takes a village. I’m so proud to have been part of such a stellar ensemble of performers... Not a single one of which I truly didn’t have a GREAT time with. The cast of @americancrimestoryfx was something truly special. Regardless if I actually had scenes with them or not, these are just SOME of the @sagaftra members that made this such an amazing experience for me, on and off camera. I hope they know that just in saying each of their names, I think fondly on our individual time together and am so grateful for their talent and warmth of spirit. THANK YOU!!!
