EUR correspondent Ty Cole spoke to Scott about her character’s growth, how the power of prayer protects her in Hollywood, and more.

Cole: How do you protect the power you have?

Scott: It’s a challenge but you have to have tools in place for your mental health. I like to pray and meditate when I’m faced with different scenarios in Hollywood. As Black women, we’ve been through so much as it is and there’s something within us that helps us continue to persist with the resilience. With that, we can conquer the world!

Cole: How has Trip developed from season one?

Scott: Trip is Hilde’s sidekick in the first season and acts as her personal contact. Trip is very bold, curious, and cares about getting down to the truth. This season, she transitions into power and we see how unfair the world is to women of color who hold power. The show will take you on a journey – how she navigates getting respect from her deputies and how her relationship with Hilde dismantles a bit.

Cole: What’s the biggest lesson your character learns this season?

Scott: Without giving away too much, we can expect a breaking point from Trip as she continues to try to hold it together for her department and her father – who is dealing with the potential loss of their land. It gets a little hot this season but what I learned from playing Trip is her resilience and how persistent she is. It doesn’t matter what it looks like, you have to continue to do what’s best and trust yourself.
