All of us have a past. We all try our best not to carry the emotional baggage of our past to our new relationships. But sometimes, the baggage doesn’t want to leave you and comes back to haunt you and your family. That is precisely what is happening to Laura Oliver in the new Netflix psychological drama Pieces of Her. In a recent interview, acclaimed actor Omari Hardwick talked about the new Netflix series and his experience on the set.

In an exclusive interview on GMA, Omari is seen talking about the show and how thrilling it is. He guarantees the audience to be at the edge of their seats throughout the series. Further in the interview, when asked about her co-star Toni Collette, Omar praises her as an “engaged” actor and a person who shares everything onscreen.

As Pieces of Her is shot for its entirety in Australia. Omari did not want to stay away from his family for that long. He recalled an important piece of advice given to him by Don Cheadle: “never stay separated from your tribe for longer than three weeks.” As a result, Omari took his wife and kids along to Australia.
