Aikan students host actors from HBO’s “The Wire” during live panel discussion

The discussion will reunite several actors from the hit HBO series The Wire, such as Nakia Dillard, Joilet Harris, Christopher Mann, Kamal Bostic-Smith, and Brian Anthony Wilson. It will be hosted by noted acting coach Miranda Thompson.
“The idea is to share [with the students] the real-life experiences we face on a daily basis, as actors,” says Aikan founder Nakia Dillard. “We continually encourage the students, but we also want them to know the realities of the business…The panel discussion will allow them to ask open-ended questions and receive positive feedback.”
