Quotes by Cress Williams

I come from theater, so I’m used to the hierarchy of an actor is just on the ladder, and above that is a director, and above that is a producer, and above that is a writer. But on a television show or film, the whole call sheet thing and being No. 1 on a call sheet, people look to you and almost expect you to exercise this power for good or bad.

— Cress Williams

Shooting a season can be a grind. It can be seven to eight months of work. Once you stop, it slows down any momentum you had.

On ‘Black Lightning’ I have a stunt double who’s a lot younger than me. The fighting style on the show is heavily martial arts-based, and I know boxing; I don’t know martial arts. I also have a really bad knee, and he’s been doing martial arts since he was 6 years old, so I’m not thinking, ‘No, I can do that! I can make that look cool!’

Growing up, I didn’t really read a lot of comics; we didn’t really have the money to get them. But I grew up a universal fan of fantasy and sci-fi and watching a lot of TV. There’s always this question of ‘Are you a fan of sci-fi or fantasy?’ But can’t you be a fan of both? We love everything fantasy, my wife and I.

Back in the day as a kid, I was really drawn to the Hulk because it just felt so human and was probably one of the first stories that I felt emotionally invested in and not just thought it was really cool. You really feel for that person and put yourself in that situation.
