Power Book III: Raising Kanan spoilers follow.
Power Book III: Raising Kanan actor London Brown has addressed the dramatic eighth episode, titled ‘The Cost of Business’.
Premiering yesterday (September 12) in the US, the action saw Marvin and Lou-Lou trading some pretty vicious insults – with particular focus on personal hygiene – but when disaster struck everything was put behind them.
Nique firebombed Lou-Lou’s place and Marvin raced in to save him from certain death, carrying him out from the flaming wreckage, but it still didn’t look good for Lou-Lou. Will he pull through?
Catching up with TVLine, Brown spoke of how his character Marvin struggled both physically and emotionally during this scene.
“I didn’t try to totally escape [that] the minute they called cut. If I need to be where I need to be, I’ll just kind of sit and stay there emotionally and mentally, but not necessarily in character.
“I played a lot of Nas’ [album] Illmatic to stay in that space and get ready.”
The actor also aimed to bring as much realism into this moment as humanly possible, explaining: “With all of his notorious acts, Marvin is still grounded. He has issues that he hasn’t flushed out yet, and unfortunately, that clouds his decision making.”
Meanwhile, ahead of the Power spin-off’s debut back in July, it was announced that Raising Kanan would return for a second outing.
Starz president and CEO Jeffrey Hirsch shared in a statement: “One season isn’t enough to tell the coming-of-age story of Kanan Stark and his mother, Raq, a fierce and successful woman who is a force of nature.
“The anticipation globally for more of the Power Universe made it clear that the Kanan story needs to continue.”
Power aired on Starz in the US, and is available on Netflix in the UK. Power Book III: Raising Kanan airs on Starz in the US and streams on Starzplay, available through Amazon Prime Video, in the UK.
