‘For Life’s Joy Bryant Teases Key Marie Episode — Exclusive Interview – Hollywood Life


The backstory you’ve been craving about Marie is about to be revealed. HL spoke EXCLUSIVELY with ‘For Life’ star Joy Bryant about Marie’s previous, getting the ‘full scope’ of Marie’s new relationship, and extra.

The March 10 episode of For Life is all about Marie Wallace. Joy Bryant performs Marie, Aaron Wallace’s supportive spouse. The collection has revealed that Marie, years after Aaron was sentenced to life in jail for a criminal offense he didn’t commit, is now in a relationship with Aaron’s pal Darius. Joy sat down with HollywoodLife EXCLUSIVELY and he or she admitted that the Marie episode will clarify every thing. “You see what it’s been like for her from her perspective proper at the start simply went to hell,” Joy instructed HollywoodLife. “You see how she ended up in this relationship with Darius. Because I think, at first, people when they first see the pilot were like, ‘Wait a minute, she’s with his friend. That’s so messed up.’ As life is, it’s complicated. But all those questions will be answered.”

The fourth episode will present Marie and Aaron’s relationship earlier than it received turned the other way up. Showing these happier instances will assist clarify “how difficult it was when he went away and how difficult it was to keep that connection going,” Joy admitted. As for Marie’s relationship with Darius, Joy mentioned: “It’s not as black and white as one would think. He’s someone who’s always there for her and it just sort of happened. In the episode, I think people will get the full scope of how that even occurred.”

While Aaron is in jail, he turns into a lawyer and works as a protection legal professional for others. He’s additionally decided to get his personal sentence overturned. Has Marie even considered what it will imply if Aaron did get out? The collection is impressed by the real-life story of Isaac Wright Jr., who reversed his personal conviction.

“I think those are things as the season progresses that she will definitely consider because, at first, it’s hard to even really believe that he can get out,” Joy mentioned. “As much as she wants to, it is pretty far-fetched. Even though you’re innocent, you got sentenced to life, you’re going to be a lawyer, you’re going to appeal your case, and you’re going to get out. That’s just a lot for her to absorb and for anyone to absorb. I think the only person besides Aaron that believes that he can do it is Jasmine. She’s hopeful from start to finish and it never wavers. Whereas Marie, she’s going to need some evidence and some time to really believe. I think that’s also her journey through most of the series. She doesn’t want to get her hopes up. She doesn’t want to get her daughter’s hopes up either, but there’s nothing she can do in terms of Jasmine because that’s her dad. She represents the sort of youthful hopefulness and naivete that we have or idealism about the future, whereas someone like Marie is like, ‘Don’t get your hopes up. This is crazy.’”

She continued: “As the season progresses and as he is starting to build his case and his evidence I think that there are times when she’s like, ‘Wait a minute. There are certain things that may not add up.’ It’s natural for one to have some doubts. Because again, it’s so far fetched and it was such a just random, awful thing that happened to their family and to him that I think there are times when she’s like, ‘Wait a minute. I know he didn’t do I really know?’” For Life airs Tuesdays at 10 p.m. on ABC.
