(Photo: Netflix)Flower man actor Gabrielle Union has made it clear that she’s not ready to go back to school.
Union, whose credits include The Vampire Diaries, Lost, The Walking Dead, and other dramas, will debut a new Netflix drama, Flower Man, in 2018.
The series follows the story of a young woman who is diagnosed with a rare form of cancer that requires her to undergo radiation treatment.
Union says she’s excited to be able to take on the part of the character who is not in her right mind.
She says the show is going to be about growing up, the challenges of growing up and finding your place in the world.
“I’m not in any way a person who wants to go to college or have children,” Union said.
“But I want to explore that aspect of being in a different world than what I was raised in.”
She added that her character is not a villain.
“She’s not a character who’s out to hurt anyone, she’s just trying to figure out what it is that she has to do to get her life back together.”
Union says Flower Man is a “really smart” and “exciting” drama.
“I love it.
I love it,” she said.
Union also says that her new series will be an attempt to tell “the story of my journey to cancer.”
She said she has been diagnosed with Stage 4 lymphoma, which is a rare, aggressive form of the cancer.
She said the disease can kill in minutes.
“When I first got diagnosed, I was so scared,” Union explained.
“And when I got diagnosed I was like, ‘What if I’m not able to do this?'”
Union said that she was able to travel with her family to Los Angeles and then spent time with a support group.
She was then able to start receiving chemotherapy.
Union said she is excited to have a new adventure to continue to explore and explore the world around her.
“We are not going to make this journey for the sake of the world,” she added.
“So we are going to go where we feel like it’s right, because that’s what I want from life.”
