Tika Sumpter signs the wall at AOL during a visit to the company’s headquarters today. The pregnant star and her co-stars Parker Sawyers and Richard Tanne sat down to discuss their new movie ‘Southside With You’ as part of AOL’s Build Series.

Sumpter stars as Michelle Robinson in Southside With You. The film tells the story of a young Barack Obama (Parker Sawyers) courting his future wife while aspiring to be a politician in Chicago. Sparks fly on the first date and the two decide to navigate the choppy waters of life together.

Tika Sumpter recently revealed that she was a bit anxious to portray Mrs. Obama onset. “I was nervous because, one, she’s so beloved by everybody,” the actress shares. “But then, I just stripped away the Michelle Obama and just took it back to the South Side of Chicago with the Michelle Robinson … I went back to her family. I was like ‘That’s my family.’ Her dad worked for the city for years. Her mom instilled so much self-esteem in her.”

Southside With You makes its public debut on Friday, August 26, 2016.
