Meagan Good on how ‘Harlem’ Season 2 was ‘cathartic’ amid divorce

Both Meagan Good and her “Harlem” character Camille needed to let it out in this new season of their lives. 

Good, 41, was approaching what would have been her and ex-husband DeVon Franklin’s 10-year-anniversary while she was filming Season 2 of the Prime Video series (streaming Friday).

“That was kind of like a tough week, and then right after that we officially got divorced,” she said Tuesday. “All that stuff was happening while I was directing, while I was acting and then some other personal things.”

“Harlem” centers on friends Camille (Good), Angie (Shoniqua Shandai), Tye (Jerrie Johnson) and Quinn (Grace Byers) as they navigate their 30s in New York City’s bustling neighborhood. Good channeled her difficult emotions into Camille, who at the end of the first season kissed her ex-boyfriend Ian (Tyler Lepley) the night before his wedding to Mira (Rana Roy).

“There’s a scene when I’m crying in the first episode (of Season 2)… that night was one of the toughest nights. I could not wait to shoot that scene because I was like, I need a good cry that I’m saving for this moment,” Good says. “And there is something kind of cathartic about being able to release in your character and to have life experiences that only make you a better actor and make you more intuitive.”
