While Meagan Good started her acting career as a child, the “Minority Report” star and wife of Franklin Entertainment President DeVon Franklin, insists God is responsible for sustaining her place in the fickle entertainment industry.

Good, 34, took to Instagram after “How to Get Away With Murder” actress Viola Davis was awarded an Emmy for Best Actress in a Drama. Davis mentioned Good, along with a number of other actresses, who were opening the door for other thespians of color to find their place in the world of television.

While Good said the moment “took my breath away,” she also reflected on the hardships that she has had to endure in the entertainment industry and how God has brought her through.

“I grew up in this business. … Nothing has ever been given to me. … With Gods grace, I’ve fought for every opportunity. … Worked hard for everything. … I’ve been rejected or not even considered many times over, simply because of the color of my skin,” Good wrote. “I made it my mission to never be bitter. … Only better. To take great pride and joy in my struggle and to trust God above anyone thought to be in charge of my destiny.”

Though the actress is now promoting her latest television project, “Minority Report,” she’s also been outspoke in explaining why she’s turned down certain roles that didn’t coincide with her Christian faith.
