Marlon Wayans has paid a touching tribute to his late mother on what would have been her birthday. Here's what he had to say.
Marlon Wayans has paid a touching tribute to his mother on what would have been her birthday, sharing a sweet photo of himself and his mom Alvara.The actor shared a photo showing the pair at her birthday party in 2017, which also happened to be his birthday too.
On the photo shared on his Instagram page, the actor wrote that he hoped his accomplishments had made his mother proud.
He added that while she was no longer here, he was lucky to have an angel to lift him, ending with Wayans telling her to rest well. He wrote:
"Losing you shattered me into 1000 pieces. I'm putting myself back together piece by piece. You will always be my glue. Miss you. Today I celebrate for the both of us."
Born in 1972, Wayans is the youngest of the famous comedic family and became known in his own right after appearing in the "Scary Movie" series which he co-wrote.
He also appeared in the WB sitcom "The Wayans Bros" with his brother Shawn and the series was primarily an autobiographical show based on their personalities and relationship.
His family remains close, however, with their busy schedules, it is often difficult for the whole clan to get together.
Wayans attended a performing arts high school and trained in the dramatic arts before deciding to do comedy. However, in 2000, he made a move to a more serious role when he appeared in "Requiem For A Dream" as a heroin addict.
To this day, his family remains close. However, with their busy schedules, it is often difficult for the whole clan to get together. He said:
"It's hard to get everybody. The West Coast family, we get together often - birthdays, weekends. The East Coast family, we all get together at least three of four times a year."
However, Terrance was quick to defend himself after saying that it was a joke and that Wayans had written the skit for a parody show called "The Awful Truth."
In addition to his success with "Scary Movie," Wayans and his brother also starred in the spoof comedy movies "White Chicks," "Little Man," and "Dance Flick."
But it seems that he may also be interested in more serious movies by appearing opposite actor Tom Hanks in "The LadyKillers."
