Michael K. Williams and Marsha Stephanie Blake took on the roles as parents of Central Park Five member Antron McCray in new Netflix mini-series When They See Us. In this sit-down with EBONY, Williams discusses his role as Bobby McCray, the father who actually encouraged his son to confess to a crime he didn’t commit, straining their relationship for years. Blake also shares her experience getting to know the woman she played, Linda McCray, who fought tooth-and-nail for her son’s freedom, even when Antron himself gave up hope. Check out the clip above. When They See Us is available now on Netflix.
