"Have a Little Faith": Anika Noni Rose"

The Pastor's Wife
Dreamgirls’ Anika Noni Rose plays Pastor Henry Covington’s wife, Annette, in the movie. In real life, her character was a self-proclaimed drug addict whose life was transformed by her faith.

Rose joins the show.

“What was it like playing Henry Covington’s wife?” Dr. Phil asks.

[AD]Rose says it was a gift to be surrounded by such a talented and legendary cast. She notes there were special challenges and responsibilities to portraying Annette, who was also on set almost every day. "It was a phenomenal and fantastic acting challenge," she says.

“I had a member of the church come to me and ask, ‘Do you think you can do this?’”
