Lisa Nicole Carson, who you may remember from her starring roles in beloved 90s films like Love Jones, Jason’s Lyric and Devil In A Blue Dress, is teaming up with Centric to give fans insight on how the actress became a mainstream staple in such a short amount of time and the stigma and rejection she faced when news of her mental illness reached the public.
She was diagnosed with Bipolar Disorder just as in the industry was transitioning into the next millennium and we started seeing less and less of her. While many figured she traded fame in for a quieter life, that was not the case. Her mental illness affected her ability to work.
Lisa is taking her story to Centric’s ‘Being’, a documentary series where notable figures in Hollywood share the poignant lessons they’ve learned as they rode fame’s wheel of fortune.
BEING: Lisa Nicole Carson premieres this Saturday August 6th at 7pm EST.
