“While reading the script and when on the set of THE WAIT I experienced the most powerful emotions I’ve ever felt as an actor and those emotions have been stirred every single time I have seen the film.

The Wait is special to me because this was my wife and I’s story and though it brings back painful memories it always reminds me of God’s grace and love and is a must-watch for anyone who is in their waiting season! Now streaming on Netflix.” Deyemi Okanlawon announced on Instagram.
