Finally, a TV role model for women over 40! This is the one aspect of Regina Taylor, the actor, the playwright, and the 2008 NAACP Image Award winner that struck me during our recent phone interview. At first, she was as reserved as any experienced artist is when being questioned by a stranger. But crack that ice and underneath lies the strong, soulful, and warm person who whom friends turn to when they seek advise. Regina Taylor, “Molly Blane”, on CBS-TV’s The Unit, possesses a down to earth personality. Her contagious, from the heart, laugh and her openness welcomes you. But the one aspect of Regina that was apparent from the start of the interview is her soulfulness. You can hear it in her voice, feel it across the miles. It’s in her replies. And she will tell you that is it great to play real woman over 40 and not a caricature of one.
“Molly Blane” is the kind of friend you go to when the chips are down, when you need a nurturing person to relay your troubles to and the one you seek out to help you solve a problem. Regina agrees she’s the same kind of person. She is a natural at playing this mature matriarch.
