BET NETWORKS GABRIELLE UNION*Actress Gabrielle Union is anxious to show the world what she and her “Being Mary Jane” co-stars have in store.

Gabrielle is all grins about the talent she was fortunate enough to be surrounded by for “Being Mary Jane.” The show’s creater, Mara Brock Akil, revealed the additional stars that would portray her family and Gabrielle couldn’t have been more pleased.

“We were hiking and she told me Suge [Margaret Avery] and Shaft [Richard Roundtree] were going to be my parents,” Gabrielle told BET, “We have so many amazing veterans and so many amazing up-and-comers. It’s a beautiful mix.”

Although the veterans may have left the actress star struck, the “Think Like a Man” star says much of the show’s quality and professionalism has to be attributed to the new faces on set.

“Everybody has something to prove and we bring it every take, every day,” she explained. “They are prepared and amazing and they discover new stuff on every take. I couldn’t have asked for more.”
