Niecy Nash Defends Karrueche Tran Getting Star Role in ‘Claws’
Comedian and actress Niecy Nash specifically requested that Karrueche Tran came in and audition for the role of Virginia, and according to Niecy, Karrueche nailed it.
She defended the upcoming actress in a recent interview with Ebony Magazine:
“I just felt like there was something about her that could serve Virginia. So she had to go through several rounds of auditions before she got the part, but she cried like a baby when I talked to her after booking it. We went out, and we celebrated. I was very, very happy for her, and she’s holding her own. It’s not stunt casting. She’s doing a really good job. She studied off her a*s though.”
