LANDING A ROLE WITH MARVEL

Missick made her on-screen debut in 2015 when she played Misty Knight in "Marvel's Luke Cage" and reprised the role in "Marvel's: The Defenders" and "Marvel's Iron Fist."

The actress was clueless during her audition, not knowing that the character was a superhero or that the series was under Marvel. Missick shared:

"I had no clue who she was, that she was the first black female ever drawn. It felt like it was meant to be. It felt like I was chosen to play this character and bring her to life."

Her role on the show opened doors of opportunities for Missick to play wonderful characters that empowered women around the globe.

Missick's husband, Dorian, is also an actor in the industry who she has worked with a couple of times. The couple played enemies in "Luke Cage," where they realized they had different methods in preparing for the role.

PLAYING JUDGE LOLA

Recently, Missick earned the role of Judge Lola Carmichael on "All Rise," which she admits is a character far from her real self. She shared:

"I've got the fortune of coming up after Viola Davis, after Kerry Washington, that showed networks and buyers and audiences that they did want to see stories told."

She highlighted the "messy," "clumsy," and "goofy" character she got to play and added: "We always see strong women. We often see strong black women. We rarely see messy, fragile black women."

The show focuses on the lives of lawyers, judges, cops, and clerks at the LA County Courthouse, with several cases taking place on the show.

Missick remains grateful to play a lead character as a black woman on CBS, which has not been done in some time.
