Yvette Nicole Brown COMMUNITY Set Visit Interview

Yvette Nicole Brown Community interview slice

If there’s one thing that Community isn’t short on, it’s strong women.  Easily one of the most powerful women in the show is Shirley, played by Yvette Nicole Brown.  Her character was at first portrayed to be just a kind-hearted religious mother but as the seasons went by we got a better look at her complex personality and how that sometimes clashes with some members of the study group.  Though the study group has had it’s differences in the past, Shirley has helped bring them back together.  She’s the heart and soul of the group.

Back in February we got the chance to sit down and speak with Yvette Brown, dressed in hospital garb, not only about the latest episode but her love for the fans and how the season finale could possibly wrap up the entire show.
