If Tia Mowry-Hardrict had things her way, a Sister, Sister movie would be playing at a theater near you.
The former child star recently caught up with OK! to gush about the 90s sitcom, which is celebrating it’s 20th anniversary this year.(Now don’t we feel old?!) She told the magazine that a movie version of the show would be the ultimate experiance.
“Oh my gosh, I would love to do Tia and Tamera go to Paris or to see where are they now,” she said. “Maybe one of them’s married one’s not, one of them’s extremely successful and the other one’s struggling and she has to help the one who’s struggling. One of them has a family, the other one doesn’t.”
“But I’m a huge fan of the Sex & The City movies and I love the way they put the girls out of their comfort zone so I would love to see that,” she continued. “Tia and Tamera somewhere out of their comfort zone, whether that’s traveling abroad to Morocco or Paris or Italy. Something fun like that.”
She went on to take a trip down memory lane. When asked about her favorite episode, Tia said it was “when my character Tia Landry finally gave Roger a chance.”
“All of these years it was ‘go home roger’ and then finally to be able to like this person, it was cool and memorable,” she said, laughing. “Marques (Houston) and I, we are still extremely close. I just talked to him maybe two days ago. He’s been to our weddings, Cree’s first birthday, he came to my birthday party last year. We are still a part of each other’s lives and that to me its remarkable because when you work on a show for six years and 20 years later to still be in contact, it says a lot I think.”
