[On when she knew she wanted to become an actress]
Niecy Nash: I watched The Young and Restless with my grandmother. One day the soap operas didn't come on and Lola Falana came out and it was the first time I had ever seen a black woman look like that on television. Grant it, she wasn't the first black woman on television but she was the first one I saw. I was like, 'Oh my God' and I looked at my grandmother and I told her, 'That's what I want to do.' She said, 'What baby?'...'Be on TV and be black and fabulous!'
