Will Smith plays Richard Williams, the father of Venus and Serena Williams, in his latest film, King Richard. Despite being the star of the film, Will made sure the cast and crew were special as they all worked together to complete the project, even during a pandemic.
During the premiere of the film, he spoke to Kevin Frazier of “Entertainment tonight“And talked about the gesture. He said, “All I can do is my part so it is always an honor and a pleasure to do my part and everyone has done a brilliant job. It was the COVID shutdowns, people really stayed with us. It was a much more difficult process than everyone thought they would sign up. I just thought it was fair. “
Will also shared what it was like to play Richard Williams, adding, “He predicted it. Two years before she was born. It is savant-level education. He had to learn tennis himself, he and Oracene learned to play tennis, then they learned how to teach their children. It’s one of the most amazing stories. “
Venus Williams also shared what it was like when she learned that Will had committed to play her father in the film. “When I heard he wanted to be part of the project long before it was even filmed, I just died,” she said. “I thought, ‘Oh my god.’ So he should be everyone’s daddy if you ask me. “
As we before reports Serena Williams shared a cute video of her father and daughter Alexis Olympia riding their bikes, saying, “A rare sighting, the only and only GOAT that is still motivating … King Richard, but I call him Daddy. “
“King Richard” will be in theaters and on HBO Max on November 19.
