Demetria McKinney shares how playing the late Whitney Houston in the Bobbi Kristina biopic, had her waking up early in the morning crying.
Demetria McKinney revealed during a recent interview about the biopic (which airs Sunday Oct. 8th on TV One), that Whitney’s spirit was on her so heavy during filming that she woke up one morning at 4:00 crying.
“A couple weeks into filming I woke up at 4 o’clock in the morning bawling. [I] couldn’t stop. I could not get her off of me.”
The singer added, “There’s something to be said for such a spiritual person. Such a faith-based person. And somebody who has left such a mark on so many different people.”
She adds, “And I think that’s when the responsibility kinda settled on me. The responsibility hit kinda hard.”
