Whoopi Goldberg's fans went wild in her comments section after the actress shared a photo of herself dressed as Mother Abagail, her character in "The Stand."
In the picture, Goldberg wore a free-fit maxi dress and her signature pair of glasses. The iconic actress was captured standing in a deserted field.
To finish up her character's look, Goldberg was seen holding a wooden staff. She also switched up her hairstyle to shoulder-length white dreadlocks. The actress accompanied the picture with a caption revealing that "The Stand" is slated to start airing on CBS on December 17. This thrilled many fans.
Goldberg's post was met with several reactions from fans who flooded the comments section to share their excitement. While one fan commented that she was anticipating the release, another revealed that she would watch it on Christmas Day to celebrate the festive season.
A third follower excitedly said he could not wait for the mini-series to be released, adding that he is an avid lover of horror movies and had always wanted to see Goldberg act in one.
Though most of her fans were thrilled to hear about Goldberg's new role, one user noted that he might not watch the movie because of its horror features. The upcoming project is a television mini-series version of the 1978 horror fiction "The Stand," which was widely loved by many book lovers.
For this, Goldberg bagged a Grammy Award and went on to appear in the 1985 movie, "The Color Purple."
The book tells the story of a flu-like pandemic that kills 99 percent of the world's population and ultimately leaves humans in a biblical fight between good and evil.
Seeing the chaos going on in the world, Mother Abagail gives herself up to become a leader for the good people while fighting opposite Randall Flagg, a leader for evil.
While speaking about her role earlier this year, Goldberg explained that her character is over 100 years. According to her, Abagail is a prophet who sees visions from God.
Goldberg rose to the spotlight after appearing in "The Spook Show," a one-woman comedic production addressing racial discrimination in America.
For this, Goldberg bagged a Grammy Award and went on to appear in the 1985 movie, "The Color Purple," which earned her an Oscar nomination and an Academy Award.
Goldberg has continuously proven herself to be a remarkable actress with several movie and television appearances. Without a doubt, this film legend has made a mark, and this explains why fans can't wait to see her on their television screens once again.
