Patina Miller stars in Raising Kanan

Power Book III: Raising Kanan might be the origin story of 50 Cent’s memorable Power character – but prepare to meet someone just as powerful.

The Starz series heads back to 1991 and explores how 15-year-old Kanan Stark (Mekai Curtis) went from a good-hearted kid to a cold-blooded killer.

The latest chapter of the Power Universe introduces Tony winner Patina Miller as Kanan’s mom, Raq, the queenpin doing the titular raising.

In the series’ first episode, we see Raq popping some batteries in a sock and encouraging Kanan to stand up for himself against his bullies – which he does.

We then see Raq send a gruesome message to Lanes Nightclub owner Toni Deep (AnnaLynne McCord), who was reluctant to let Raq use the club for her illicit dealings.

“Being a mom and the energy of wanting to be your boss and have this passion and grit and thirst for more to be successful,” Miller said of ways she could relate to Raq.

She added: “I know what it’s like to have people depend on you. I know what it’s like to be in a home that has a young mother and a child. My mom was 15 years old when she had me.”

Patina Miller’s family explored

After three years of marriage the Tony Award-winning actress gave birth to a daughter, Emerson Harper Mars.

Emerson is the first child for Mars and Miller.

Talking to New York Family, Miller said: “I know for females – working moms, that is – there’s always the fear of ‘I’m not going to be able to mother the way I want to mother and I’m going to have to give up my career,’ and what I’ve found is that no, you don’t, you just have to figure out how to make it work.

“If you can get yourself a good village of people who are willing to be there for you… that’s the best thing.”
