John David Washington Shares How He Felt Watching Denzel Washington Act For The First Time

Denzel Washington’s son, John David Washington, recently opened up about the first time he saw his father act on stage.

Washington said, “Richard the Third. I saw my father on stage for the first time. I was a kid. It was like a magic trick, you know, ’cause he didn’t talk like that at the house. And he just got on stage and he transformed into this other being with these words.”

He continued, “I remember he would walk me around, you know, the city when he was doing it, and recite the lines, and I always used to giggle when he said, I used to love the line ‘Now is the winter of our discontent.’ I never knew what that meant, but I just knew those words. And I felt so cool. I just thought it was magical.”

John David is following in the footsteps of his father by taking on Hollywood and credits his father for inspiring him to pursue acting.
