Watching Regina as Angela Abar on Watchmen was an absolute gut-punch when it came to the emotional turmoil she was able to convey simply with a look. She completely disappears into each role, fully throwing herself into the task at hand and making you believe that she is truly feeling every emotion you see on screen. Over the years, she's been recognized for her dramatic work, earning an Academy Award and Golden Globe for If Beale Street Could Talk and four Emmys, one for Watchmen, two for American Crime, and one for Seven Seconds.
When it comes to challenging roles, she tackles them head on. "In that moment, I didn't have to give much direction. Regina knew exactly what she was doing. It's incredibly vulnerable, powerful, and brave all at once," Jenkins previously said to Vanity Fair about Regina in If Beale Street Could Talk.
