As well as starring as Kelli on HBO’s “Insecure,” Rothwell is also a producer and writer for the show, which has just kicked of its final season.
Speaking to Bust.com, Rothwell opened up about her experience of penning her favorite “Insecure” episode. She said she wrote it days after the murder of George Floyd.
“Approaching [the airing of] this episode, I was exhausted,” says Rothwell. “I thought, ‘I don’t know if folks want to f—k with this right now.’ But even I didn’t know how badly I needed those 30 minutes to just not think about everything going on. It was a respite. I was so happy to see people of color giggling and playing.”
Rothwell spoke of the importance of integrating intersectional feminism into her work. “I can’t be a champion of marginalized voices without speaking to my Blackness and without speaking to my femininity,” she shared. “And I can’t do that if I’m not also uplifting the marginalized voices of the LGBTQIA+ community, of those who are gender nonconforming, and of those who are disabled. There are a myriad of communities that require a voice and support.”
