Jada Pinkett Smith
Jada Pinkett Smith returns to her television roots in the new TNT medical drama HawthoRNe, a character-driven series about a nurse who is a true everyday hero (Airs Tuesdays at 9pm). Pinkett Smith plays the recently widowed Christina Hawthorne, a compassionate and headstrong Chief Nursing Officer who is the kind of nurse you want on your side when you or someone you love is in the hospital. She is the kind of nurse who fights for her patients and doesn’t let them slip through the cracks. Hawthorne is still coming to terms with losing her husband, finding a way to balance her career with her equally important role as a single parent, and finding the time to take care of someone who always seems to fall through the cracks – herself.
Jada talked with us about how her mother inspired her character, Christina Hawthorne, and why Will Smith may just be the most romantic husband ever!
