Cherry Jones is one of the most distinguished actresses working today. A Tony and Emmy Award winner, she’s graced the screen, stage, and our television sets with brilliant performances over her entire career. Her latest role is in “The Eyes Of Tammy Faye,” where she plays Tammy’s mother, Rachel. A religiously devoted woman, she has to deal with backlash within her community due to being divorced, making for a complex character to portray on screen and one with whom Cherry can relate in more ways than one. Cherry was kind enough to spend some time talking with us about her role, her thoughts on the real-life Tammy Faye and her husband Jim Bakker, working with Jessica Chastain, and more! Click below to listen, and be sure to check out the film now playing in theaters from Searchlight Pictures. Enjoy!
