Jurnee Smollett-Bell was back to work on her new movie days after her brother Jussie Smollett was attacked in Chicago during an alleged hate crime.
The former “Friday Night Lights” star was seen Wednesday with her son, Hunter, arriving on the set of DC‘s “Birds of Prey (And the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn),” the “Suicide Squad” spin-off starring Margot Robbie.
Jurnee has not yet spoken on the violent incident involving her brother, but the two stars are extremely close, with the “Empire” star frequently showing admiration for his younger sister.
“If I were to truly lay out how proud I am of Jurnee, I would be here for like an entire year,” Jussie said in an interview, adding, “I respect her so much as an artist and as a human being for the choices she has made.”
As we reported, Chicago investigators have released photos of two persons of interest who were seen near the location where Jussie was attacked. The two people have not yet been identified.
