‘Power’ Stars La La Anthony, Naturi Naughton Reveal Struggle to Film Raina’s Funeral Scene

*The cast of “Power” had a difficult time with one scene in particular featured in the upcoming fifth season.

It takes place during the funeral of 11-year-old Raina, the daughter of main character James “Ghost” St. Patrick (Omari Hardwick).

Anthony, who plays Ghost’s wife’s best friend LaKeisha Grant on the show, told Page Six of her own struggle to get through the somber scenes.

“You are in there, and your emotions are running high — as a mom, you are feeling a way. I am looking at the eulogy of a young child, and that is not something you see often for children, thank God. Even on set, the vibe was just different,” she said.

Naturi Naughton, who plays Ghost’s wife Tasha, added: “For me, being a new mother, I can’t even fathom or imagine losing a child. So doing scenes like that, you do have to pull from your real emotions in order to tap in, which acting is all about.”

She continued, “Some people in the real world are dealing with death, gun violence, children dying and funerals. Innocent young people are dying every day. This show touches on things that are happening in the world.”
