Chante Adams Interview’
Roxanne Roxanne’ Star Chanté Adams Takes On The Battle Of Life In Netflix’s Hip-Hop Epic
VIBE: How did you manage to land an audition and role straight out of college?
Chanté Adams: I graduated from Carnegie Mellon University with a degree in drama, and at the end of four years, we do a showcase in New York and LA for managers and agents. An agent that saw me reached out to the casting director [for Roxanne Roxanne]. So, I got an email from [the casting director]. It was my first movie audition. I had just moved to New York two weeks prior to auditioning. Never in my mind did I think this is my role; I’m just trying to get practice because I know that I have a lifetime of auditions.
I went in for it and felt like I did a good job. I left and said, ‘Welp that was fun.’ Then I went about my day. I ended up getting the callback, and again, that was just another hey, I got my first call back. I’m proud of myself. Still, no thought in my mind that I would get it. Then I got the final call back, and that’s when it set in: I can get this. I went to the final call back, and I didn’t feel as good as I did about the first two, probably because that was the pressure setting in. But a couple of days later, I got a phone call telling me that I got the part, and I was starting the next week.
You’re a formally trained actress. What formal practices did you bring to the set? Which ones did you have to break out of?
I went into production for Roxanne Roxanne knowing nothing about shooting a movie. I knew two things: how to act and how to learn. The rest I had to figure out along the way. I’m so grateful that I did get this role out of school because that training was fresh. [I just did] that deep text work that any classically trained actor would do. But then I got a call from the [director Michael Larnell] telling me how excited he was about me having the part and telling me that we needed to have a camera rehearsal.
I got in front of that camera at the audition and I’m like: ‘We can’t do the laundry! We need to do the laundry!’ [It was] so over the top because I’m so used to being on stage where I have to be loud and have to be big for the people all the way in the back. You get in front of that camera, and it’s right there, capturing every little thing. So [Larnell] met me at my wardrobe fitting and we had a rehearsal for a couple of hours, where he would tape me on his iPhone and then play it back for me. Every time I watched myself, I’d be like, ‘Oh my God, no!’ It did not make me feel good about going into production, but I immediately understood what I had to do from day one. That was my crash course in film acting.
You were born in 1994, so you probably had very little knowledge of Roxanne Shanté. How did you prepare for the role?
I read and watched every interview that Roxanne Shanté has. Then I went to the people that were kids in that era and that was my two older siblings. I asked them how they felt [about her], especially my sister. She was nine years old when “Roxanne’s Revenge” dropped. And she remembered singing in her mirror and trying to memorize the words and what that meant for her having never seen a female rapper before.
You mentioned only having eight days to prepare. How did that affect you?
The good thing about only having eight days is that I did not have time to freak out. There was no time to be like, ‘What am I going to do?’ It was immediately: okay, let me scream for a second. Call my parents. Let’s get to work. But, of course, the butterflies and the nerves were still there. I was more trying to focus on the work because I knew I was going to meet her soon [and] she needs to be happy with this choice.
[Our meeting was] the same day I had the wardrobe fitting and camera rehearsal. I was there for six or seven hours. I had to try on 40 outfits, then go to camera rehearsal for two hours. Then I had to meet Shanté. I remember I was sitting on a couch like this, and I heard her heels clicking down the hallway, and my heart just started pounding. I was so nervous, but as soon as she walked in, she had the biggest smile on her face. She just took me in her arms, and I was [thought]: ‘Thank you God, she’s nice!’
How was your conversation?
I’m going to be completely honest. I do not know what that conversation was about. I was so focused on watching everything she was doing because this was the only time I had with her before we started shooting. What’s her tone of voice? What’s she doing with her hands? What facial expressions is she making? What is she doing right now that I can put into this character over the next few days that I have to prepare?
She was also the executive producer. Was it intimidating having her on set, watching you play her?
It was intimidating at first. But then I realized how great it was to have her there and how I needed to use that. If I had any questions or needed advice, she was there. Then the nerves eventually wore off. She wore a bunch of hats, especially when it came to me.
She was quick to jump into a mother role if she could sense that anything was wrong. With those braces especially, they were cutting up my mouth and as soon as I showed her and was near tears, she sent the assistants to get me wax and taught me how to put it on my braces – stuff a producer doesn’t have to do.
But she also wore that producer hat, so if I wasn’t doing something correctly or the way that she would have done it, she was quick to pull me off to the side. I couldn’t do the Wop at all, the dance. You got to Wop during “Roxanne’s Revenge,” and she’s like ‘Nah, nah, come off the stage.’ She took me around the corner, her and her son, to practice. One, two, one, two. She taught me how to Wop in between takes. Every take, we’d go off to the side and practice a little more.
