London shared a photo of herself alongside her co-stars in a promotional photo for the show while writing, "Love and Respect to the cast and crew. Tune in tonight 10pm to watch Games People Play @bet." She ended the brief message with a nod to Nipsey by adding, "Love y’all 💙🏁."
Not long before Nipsey passed away, London sat down with The Grio to talk about her new series. In Games People Play, the actress plays the part of a wife who married her high school sweetheart. In the blink of an eye, they go from a normal, happy pair to a power couple after her husband is drafted into a pro-basketball league.
“I feel no fear," she said of her role. "Usually I do, but no, not this time, Usually the roles I’ve done before like really fun and sassy and you know kind of surface roles,” she says. “This was a broken wife and a woman and I feel like I’m 34, I have kids and I have lived some life that I can put into this into a woman.” Adding, “Being a mother has changed my outlook on life and I think that naturally filters into my work."
