‘Proud Mary’ star Taraji P. Henson dishes on playing a strong female lead

By Kelly McCarthy,

“Proud Mary” star and executive producer Taraji P. Henson said she is “really proud of this movie” and told “GMA” about what it takes to prepare for a role in an action film.

“I’m really proud of this movie because we haven’t seen an African-American woman starring in a role like this,” Henson said. “We’ve seen badass sidekicks but not the star of the show, headlining.”

Henson plays a hitwoman involved with an organized crime family in Boston. Things take a turn for the worse when she meets a young boy after a professional hit goes wrong.
