Marquis Rodriguez When They See Us

Marquis is starring in a Netflix miniseries, When They See Us, which is about the innocent teens who were branded the “Central Park Five”.

The teens were wrongly convicted of the rape of a white female jogger in the 1989 Central Park case. The five teens served 6 to 13 years in prison before their convictions were overturned when another man confessed to the crime; DNA confirmed his guilt and exonerated them.

The five teens who are now grown men are Antron McCray, Kevin Richardson, Yusef Salaam, Raymond Santana Jr., and Korey Wise.

Marquis will be portraying Raymond Santana in the miniseries. Raymond was only 14 years old when he was arrested in 1989 and was incarcerated for close to seven years for the jogger case.

Raymond admitted that reliving the moments is painful but worth it.

“It brings back the pain; it brings back the memories. But it’s necessary. I was ready and I was willing to relive, to go through that pain again, to cry — because it’s necessary. It’s a sacrifice. You want to change the culture, you’ve got to be engaged. This is how we got engaged.”

Marquis who will be portraying Raymond spoke about their characters saying;

“In that scene when Raymond, Kevin, Yusef, and Antron are in the holding cell, you’re literally watching four boys have to work through really adult issues and they decide to tell the truth from there on out. But they shouldn’t have to do that. That should not be their burden, to have to disentangle themselves from adult lies. It’s often children of color’s work.”

” As a cast, we were vulnerable with each other, we wept with each other and talked about the work with each other. We absolutely formed a brotherhood between us, and I think I’m so grateful for it.”
