Niecy Nash on the September 2017 Cover of Essence Magazine

Niecy Nash has been doing her thing in Hollywood for many years but she's finally getting the recognition that she deserves thanks to her roles. The actress is also the September 2017 cover star of Essence magazine. On the cover which was shot by Sophy Holland, Niecy is rocking yellow dress which was accessorized with statement jewelry.  In the issue, she talks her life, the industry and so much more. Continue below to read some excerpts from her interview. For more on Niecy's feature, visit and pick up a copy on newsstand. 

On her life:
If you look at my track record, ‘She saw her mother get shot. She buried her only brother. She went through a horrible divorce. She lost her church.’ And to look at [my life], in many ways that does feel like a Cinderella story. 

On the industry:
For a long time, the industry was polite, but they were like, ‘Dear, you have a lane. You do broad comedy. Stay over there.' I had to be a lady in waiting and bide my time until they started to recognize. My first time doing dramatic work garnered me back-to-back Emmy nominations...You've got to figure out how to get your do-over.
