Her cast members shared those same warm feelings for Whitney. When asked if they were initially apprehensive about working with a star this is what each of the ladies had to say. You canread the transcript or watch the video below:

Lela Rochon: “I loved her! I was a Whitney Houston fan, actually. I loved her in The Bodyguard . I saw it three times and I thought ‘God what a wonderful project that’ll open the doors for me one day.’”

Loretta Devine: “I was really glad that she got it because I felt like, all the people that come to see her,  are gonna get to see me. And if it were the other way around, she’d be in trouble.”

Reporter : Were you at all reluctant to work with Whitney?..

Angela Bassett: Not at all. Why would I be? Oh no, I’m sorry, go ahead.

Reporter: Were you fearful that her fame would eclipse that in anyway?

Angela Bassett: “Not at all. I thought, here’s this woman, as hard as it is for a black girl to make it in this world, she’s a superstar all over the world.”
