Fans aren't the only ones who have been digging R&B superstar and five-time Grammy winner Tionne "T-Boz" Watkins' work on Days of our Lives. The singer, who made it big with the group TLC, also thinks her daytime role is crazy, sexy, cool.
"I couldn't believe that not only [was DAYS] interested in having me on the show, but that this would be a recurring role," she told Soap Opera Digest of the prison storyline currently playing out on the canvas. "The role sounded amazing. I've always wanted to play a thug-type chick."
However, she admits that jumping into the soap world wasn't exactly easy. "I was nervous my first day on set, but they were so accommodating and comforting," she shares, adding that Kristian Alfonso (whose alter ego, Hope Brady, is in prison with T-Boz's character) was particularly welcoming. "She was my favorite, to tell you the truth. She's so helpful."
