Freida Pinto Hopes 'Guerrilla' Will Be That Show That Speaks To People - Watch Trailer!

Freida Pinto is hoping her brand new show Guerrilla inspires people!

The 32-year-old actress plays Jas Mitra, the lead in the politically charged six-part Showtime series, about a young woman who joins an underground cell to protest racism in early 1970s London.

“We didn’t think a lot of things were gonna go down the way [they] went down, but maybe in a way, it’s a good thing that there’s an awakening of sorts within the fabric of human society, and maybe ‘Guerrilla’ will be that show that speaks to [people] on a one-on-one level. At least it did for me,” Freida recently expressed (via WWD).

“I’m an activist — not necessarily a political activist, but politics and policies do determine my activism quite a lot,” Freida added. “You know, [actors] are able to channel all our emotions into all these various characters and look into the darkness, the ugliness, the beauty, the nurturing qualities, all of it. So, for me, it’s quite therapeutic.”

Pictured: Freida joining director John Ridley and co-star Babou Ceesay at their Emmy: For Your Consideration screening of Guerrilla held at The WGA Theater on Thursday (April 13) in Beverly Hills, Calif.
