The gallery has been updated with HD screencaptures of Regina King from latest episode of Watchmen. Intense. Devastating. Brilliant.
Despite receiving rave reviews, HBO’s Watchmen is ironically a hard show to watch at times – and according to its lead star Regina King, it’s sometimes just as difficult for the cast and crew to film it.
An original spin on Alan Moore’s graphic novel source material, the show shines a light on the history of white supremacy in the US.
And King says that, while filming for episode six of the first series, there was a moment that hit her and a crew member so hard that they were left in tears.
Speaking exclusively to Digital Spy, she said: “It was so emotional for all of us on set, you know?
“One of the guys from our prop department, Brett, and I got really close throughout the shooting of the show, because we’re about the same age. He’s a white guy. I’m a black woman. But we got to know each other… because he’s the one who would prop me up every day, to put on my badge and the cross and all of the stuff.
“We got to [episode six], and he had to put that noose on me. We both ended up in tears. It comes back for me again, but it just goes to show the history of how much pain has surrounded race and violence in our country – and how much it has made up the fabric of our country.”
She continued: “We pretend— or, some want it to be erased. And it’s realising that that desire by some to erase it, is them not facing their own pain surrounding it. Because it’s terrifying to deal with pain. You know, as humans, that what we try to do. We try to avoid it all the time. And then just as black people, we have not only pain, but also so much anger wrapped up in the pain.
“So there’s a reckoning that America has to come to. I think we are at its door with a lot of things that are happening.”

Serving looks for hours at a time can be taxing, but Regina King is focused, her gaze steady on the lens. On the third Friday of October, four days after the Hollywood premiere of HBO’s Watchmen and two days shy of the series’ launch, she’s posed-up inside L.A.’s Milk Studios on Cahuenga Boulevard as an R&B playlist flows from the speakers. Her call time was 8 a.m. Now, as five o’clock approaches and the shoot winds down, King gathers up her team to pop a few bottles. It’s been a good day.
Aside from a visit to Watchmen’s Atlanta set this past June and a 15-minute sit-down at the New York City–based press junket five months later, this one-on-one is the most time we’ve had to talk. Translation: Regina King stays working. And busy. Her journey exemplifies what is possible when you master your craft and stay the course. Stated simply, she is a legend.
When it’s time for our interview, gone are the bold gold accessories, custom hairpieces, and shimmery gowns. She’s dressed down in a gray jumpsuit and wedge boots, bamboo hoops, and a patterned headwrap tied around her head. The only remains of the day are her lashes and manicure. As King settles in, she takes a deep breath and a sip from her glass of rosé. She’s relaxed and ready to roll.
King, 48, attended the 2019 ESSENCE Black Women in Hollywood Awards in February to present a statue to her If Beale Street Could Talk co-star KiKi Layne. Backstage was hectic, but the energy shifted upon her arrival. She was up for her first Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress, for Beale Street. A month before, she’d taken home the Golden Globe, and now the Oscar buzz was near deafening. But King is no diva. After saying her hellos and giving a few hugs, she turned her attention to her script and made a few last-minute edits. Then she waited in the wings for her introduction. “She’s an actress, producer, and director,” host Kelly Rowland began. “She’s also a 2015 ESSENCE Black Women in Hollywood honoree, a Golden Globe winner, three-time Emmy winner and newly minted Academy Award nominee.…”
