Actress Lela Loren took time out her schedule to attend the private reception of OWN’s new television show Queen Sugar at The Legacy Kitchen in New Orleans. At the reception Tall Boy spoke exclusively to Loren about the hit television series “Power” Season 3 on Starz.
Loren rose to prominence in 2006 when she appeared in numerous television shows such asCold Case, The Shield, CSI: Miami, CSI:NY and The Ghost Whisperer. She also made numerous film appearances such as The Hangover Part III and Reign Over Me.
The series follows James St. Patrick, nicknamed “Ghost,” owner of a popular New York City nightclub “Truth.” In addition, he is a major player in one of the city’s biggest illegal drug networks. He struggles to balance these two lives, and the balance topples when he realizes he wants to leave the drug ring in order to support his legitimate business, and commit to his mistress. He seems eerily unhappy with his life, Tommy calling it a mid-life crisis, therefore getting in a relationship with Angela. He also has to keep his marriage with Tasha (Naughton) and his relationship with AUSA agent Angela Valdez (Loren). With help from his partner in crime Tommy Egan (Sikora), he tries to manage a double life. In the second season James is thrown out of his penthouse after Tasha found out that James took Angela to Miami. Kanan (50 Cent) who spent 10 years in a drug related crime, also believes Ghost set him up. Kanan has a son Shawn, who drives Ghost around and Kanan uses him to get information on Ghost. In the season 2 finale, Ghost and Kanan indulge in an extremely dangerous fight in a dilapidated building. Ghost eventually stabs Kanan and burns him. But in the final minutes of the season finale “Ghost Is Dead“, it is revealed that sprinklers had put the fire out, resulting in Kanan escaping and ends with the line “Nobody broke in, somebody broke out”.
