To close out the summit, the cast of STARZ Power Book II: Ghost series, which is one of several forthcoming spin-offs from the hit STARZ series POWER, joined the Girls United Summit to chat about about how their leading presence in the series as rising young actors is helping to reshape the representation narrative in Hollywood in multiple ways.

On this first season of Power Book II: Ghost, Tariq (played by Michael Rainey Jr.) juggles his relationship with Diana (played by LaToya Tonodeo) and Lauren (played by Paige Hurd). While there may be some tension between this trio on screen, when chatting together IRL, the three actors clearly have nothing but love for each other.
