Thandie Newton Tackles Gritty Role In ‘Rogue’
Thandie Newton is no stranger to playing complex, multi-layered roles, but her latest may be her most challenging. The accomplished actress told HipHollywood why she wanted to play Grace in the new dramatic series, Rogue. “She’s an extraordinary person, but she’s also just a regular person…” Newton explained.
In Rogue, Grace is an undercover detective who, after the murder of her son, goes on a renegade mission to find his killer. As a mother of two and a huge advocate for human rights, Thandie told HH that she felt like she “wanted to bring a voice to that grief in an authentic way.”

Rogue debuts on DirecTV Wednesday, April 3rd.
