Da’Vine Joy Randolph Proud of ‘The Idol’ Despite Cancellation

thesis goon

Oscar nominee Da’Vine Joy Randolph is proud of the work that was done on HBO’s series ‘The Idol’, where she played a supporting role in the series that was panned by critics and was canceled after just one season.

When Randolph was asked about the the fate of series she gave her candid thoughts in responding to the question – “Does it sting?”

“No, because I know what I did, and I’m very proud of what I did in the role that I created” she said, according to Vanity Fair. “How people respond and people’s feelings don’t have nothing to do with me. And I don’t have anything to do with contributing to that narrative either. So I just let it go. I enjoy my contribution.”

Randolph explained that it’s “just the nature of the business.”

“My first TV show didn’t get the back nine for network television. I’ve done pilots that don’t get picked up. I’ve done movies where they’re on hold for three, four years. High Fidelity was the same way. They immediately picked us up, and then the pandemic hit. It’s unnatural, but you have to get cozy next to rejection and loss. I don’t know if that’s a good skill to develop or not, but you really must love what you do because there’s so many nos. You gotta love it in spite of the nos, and that’s hard.”

Randolph also addressed the criticism the show received.

“I truly respect and understand everyone’s opinion,” she said, according to The Hollywood Reporter. “Meaning, at the end of the day, it’s art. If we went to a museum, I know everybody won’t like the same painting. But as an artist, as long as there’s conversation being had, in my opinion, you’ve won the race. Not everyone’s going to like everything and that’s not for me to control. All I do is my very best.”
