“It’s been a crazy couple of days,” actress Kimmy Robertson said after being introduced by the show’s creators as the inspiration behind her character, a black woman who can turn into a rainbow.
“I think it’s funny, it’s amazing how many different types of hair we can have.”
But the “Rainbow” star and “Portlandia” alum is not only excited to be a part of the show, but she has been working with the show for years, going back to her time on “Community.”
She’s a regular on the show in its fourth season and is a fan favorite in the ensemble, appearing in episodes such as “The Final Countdown” and “Parks.”
“It’s amazing to see people who are just so passionate and so kind and supportive of the work and all that they’re trying to do,” she said.
“Parks” is in its sixth season and airs Mondays on NBC.
