John Legend talks to us about marching in solidarity with Chrissy Teigen and his timely series "Underground"
Just before the Women’s March took place, everyone’s-favorite-celeb Chrissy Teigen decided to join the march in Washington D.C. – with husband John Legend’s full support.
The star had originally planned to join Legend at Sundance Film Festival while he celebrated the wrap of Underground Season 2, a civil-war era WGN America series he executive produces, but decided she couldn’t miss the historic gathering of women in our nation’s capitol.
Legend fully supported his wife’s decision, and said he stayed in full contact with her while marching at a satellite event in Park City, Utah.
Legend, along with fellow Underground castmembers Jurnee Smollett-Bell and Aldis Hodge, walked the red carpet before an exclusive event on Park City’s Main Street to celebrate the upcoming release of Season 2.
Underground follows escaped slaves on their journey to freedom, and according to Legend, the show is more relevant than ever in today’s social and political climate.
Legend marched down a snowy Main Street Saturday morning among 8,000 others to demand equality for women and vulnerable communities. Underground, he said, channels the calls for justice and social change that we are hearing so loudly today.
Underground premieres Wednesday, March 8th on WGN America.
