    Andra Day, star of ‘The United States vs. Billie Holiday,’ talks with EW’s David Canfield about what it was like playing Billie Holiday and the impact it had.

    Playing Billie Holiday changed Andra Day.

    In her first starring role, the Grammy-nominated artist (“Rise Up”) has wowed as the musical icon, earning superb reviews across the board out of Hulu’s Friday release of The United States vs. Billie Holiday. As directed by Lee Daniels, the biopic reframes Holiday’s legacy and confronts the conspiracies to stop her from singing her bracing song, “Strange Fruit.” Day rises to the challenge. On Sunday night, she won, in something of an upset, the Golden Globe for Best Actress in a Motion Picture — Drama, cementing her standing as a major force in this year’s Oscar race.
