The star of Luther and The Wire is being recognised for his acting, as well as for championing diversity in the industry.
The Wire star Sonja Sohn has been arrested for drug possession.It’s been reported that the actor, who played Shakima ”Kima” Greggs in the HBO series, was arrested in North Carolina on Sunday for possession of cocaine, marijuana and drug paraphernalia.According to TMZ, the marijuana and paraphernalia charges will be booked as misdemeanours but the cocaine charge could be a felony.Sohn is said to have posted bail set at $1,500 and authorities say she’ll be arraigned on Tuesday.The actor’s most recent role is Laverne on US series The Chi, which was created by Master of None star Lena Waithe.Controversy struck production of the Chi in recent months when Sohn’s co-star Jason Mitchell (Mudbound, Detroit) was dropped from the show due to multiple allegations of sexual misconduct.Sohn appeared in all five seasons of The Wire, which came to an end in 2008.
Anyone who’s seen Shawn Ryan’s ‘The Shield’ in its entirety will be aware of what an utterly gripping, intense, and well-acted show it is.
The concept of movies we have known so far is doomed to change and it isn’t something we should be scared of. Over time, cinemas became seen as places for social gatherings and movies became known as their own art form. In my childhood, I mostly frequented my town’s cinema to watch the latest Disney Classic such as The Lion King or Hercules and I was starting to understand the concept of movies no longer played by real people but made of cartoons.
