In this behind-the-scenes interview, actress Tika Sumpter reveals why she enjoys playing a character like Candace. "Some people think she's evil. I think her childhood was complex—it's not so cut and dry," Tika says. "I love playing somebody who has different colors, you know, and I think that's why people actually like her. That's what I love about her: She's imperfect."

Watch as Tika shares how Candace's relationship with her son will evolve throughout the season.
