Niecy Nash's advice for actors

The successful actor talks to Salon about her journey to stardom and some important lessons she learned along the way.

"To be fabulous and on television" was Niecy Nash's goal early on, she said recently on "Salon Talks" with Salon's Alli Joseph. But the journey to stardom wasn't a seamless one, as Nash navigated her Hollywood dreams with three kids by her side.

Watch the video above to hear Nash talk about her vigorous work ethic over the years and what motivated her to keep pursuing her acting goals. Nash's on-screen roles have been expansive, and she now stars in TNT's drama series "Claws," which will return for season 2 in 2018.
