The breakout hit sequel Power Book II: Ghost stars Paige Audrey-Hurd as Lauren, one of Tariq St. Patrick’s (Michael Rainey Jr.) love interests.
The actress describes Lauren as a “typical teenage girl who is trying to figure things out” during an exclusive interview at the NYC red carpet premiere.
The Everybody Hates Chris alum continued, “[She has a] little love triangle going on and you also see her coming into her own this season. So you get to see her making her own decisions versus last season, you know, we saw that she was trying to go to school and do what her parents wanted her to do.”
Michael has become a breakout star since the premiere of Power Book II: Ghost and Paige described what it’s like working with him.
“It’s amazing. You know, I always tell Michael, I’m like to be your age and have what you have. Like, I’m just shocked at how humble and kind he is. And since day one, he’s been nothing but sweet kind professional and has welcomed us all with open arms. And if you say this is his show, he will correct you real quick and say it’s ours. So that’s really sweet of him.”

As per the synopsis, “POWER Book II: Ghost begins its second season with Tariq St. Patrick still running from a legacy that haunts him. Forced into the choice to take the life of his professor, Jabari Reynolds, Tariq finds himself drifting further from that which he’s been fighting to protect: his family. With Tasha in witness protection, Tariq knows he must sacrifice anything to save what’s left of his family. Unable to do it alone, he turns to those wielding power and influence: Davis MacLean and his new partner, Cooper Saxe, as well as Rashad Tate. Of course, all of these options come with a steep price. So, it’s back to business with the Tejadas. But now with two murders involving Stansfield, Monet Tejada has to question if Tariq is what’s best for her family, as she seeks to protect her nephew’s NBA prospects at all costs. Her kids, Dru and Diana, question her moves as she grows more distracted, especially when Monet goes as far as trusting Cane again despite his actions against the family. In doing so, Monet finds herself in bed with Mecca, a man who wants to show her a whole new world, potentially at the cost of destroying her old one. Forcing Monet to lean on Tariq, who must decide what he really wants and what he’s going to sacrifice to get it.”
