Meagan Good is one of Hollywoodâ€™s finest actresses and this month she can be found on covers of the latest issue of Upscale Magazine. Look for the new issue in which she opens up to UPSCALE Magazine about what true power is in her eyes, and how her husband, DeVon Franklin, brought love and healing into her life. And the gorgeous 30-year-old is determined to show people she hasnâ€™t been typecast as the sexy girl every man wants.
Meagan On being typecast:
â€œThere were a couple times where the director said â€˜We really like you, but youâ€™re a little bit too sexy.â€™ And Iâ€™m like, â€˜Well, what do I need to do? Wear a turtleneck? You know, loose-fitting clothes?â€™ And theyâ€™re like â€œNah, itâ€™s just something that you give off.â€ I donâ€™t know that I necessarily believe that. I believe that people, when they have a pre-conceived notion of who you are, and things youâ€™ve done in the past, sometimes they forget that as an actor youâ€™re able to shut off whatever you need to shut off, and youâ€™re able to turn on whatever you need to turn on.â€
On her love for her husband Devon Franklin:
â€œTo me thereâ€™s nothing sexier than a man that loves the Lord. I canâ€™t imagine anything more attractive. And then, we just get each other, we donâ€™t judge each other. He understands me. His love has brought a lot of healing to a lot of areas that have been really painful for me. â€

On what true power is:
My definition of power is being able to move, and live, and do the things that you aspire to do and that you believe are part of your purpose to do, without letting other peopleâ€™s opinions or judgements manipulate your direction, without getting discouraged when a door closes, and just kinda having a good sense of self, and knowing who you are, and being strong in your walk with God. All of that, to me, is what power is.”
