Steven Spielberg's new movie 'Ready Player One' follows a team of friends trying to solve a puzzle inside a virtual world, where all the clues are based on pop culture from the 1980s. In this exclusive interview, actress Lena Waithe, who plays Aich in the film, explains why she thinks the 80s are still so popular.
Lena Waithe is an actress and screenwriter from Chicago, Illinois.
She is best known as the writer of hit television series such as Hello Cupid (2013), Bones (2014-2015) and The Chi (2018).
She has written one TV movie Untitled Lena Waithe Project (2016) and she is currently working on another one called Twenties.
Waithe's acting career is equally impressive. This 34-year-old has appeared in TV series such as Transparent (2016), Master of None (2015-2017) and This Is Us (2018).
Her latest acting effort is in Steven Spielberg's fresh sci-fi action Ready Player One (2018).
Waithe plays one of the side characters - Aech / Helen. Waithe is just amazed by Ready Player One's retro feel, and she is crazy about the nostalgic 1980s vibe that it has.
