When They See Us’ Star Jharrel Jerome Talks Inspiring Role As Korey Wise For New Netflix Series

How familiar were you with the story of Central Park Five before filming?

I grew up in the Bronx, so this story was among dozens of other stories that were taught as life lessons to me by my parents, in terms of when you see the police be polite, don’t be out in the streets late, come home before dark. But in terms of the depth of the story, I didn’t understand it. I didn’t know about it until Ava brought it into my life. I hope for the rest of the world it’s the same deal.

We’ve heard about the story. It’s in our head. We kinda have the central facts of it but we don’t have the emotion or the truth behind it, and I think it’s about time [we do]. Even the Ken Burns documentary—it’s almost like a Wikipedia page. It just has the facts but you don’t have the emotion, you don’t have the family aspect, you don’t have what the script will give you.

How was your experience meeting and working with Korey?

It was unreal. I was terrified to meet him just because this is the man I’m going to portray, and I don’t know how to speak to somebody who’s lived a life like that because I’ve never met anyone like that. The second I met him, he took his chain off and put it around my neck, and he said, “You’re Korey Wise now.” That put everything into perspective for me about the kind of man he is. It’s all strength, it’s all power.

He’s all bright. I still see 16-year-old Korey inside of him. So Ava allowing me to spend time with him, that was all my preparation—just getting to speak to him. But it was also my therapy. Ava had a hotline on set where we could call and we could talk to somebody for consoling, but I never called that number. I just needed to call Korey. Korey’s smile, Korey’s energy—that was the therapy for me. That’s what kept me grounded in the work and through all the pain, through all the sorrow that came with this role. He’s a beam of light. That’s the type of man he is.

He bought me sneakers. We were in Harlem and we went into Foot Locker and he’s like, “I’m buying your sneakers.” I said no, and he’s like, “I’m buying your sneakers!” He was so loud, everybody turned. That’s who he is. He’s loud. He’s not afraid of it. “I’m buying your sneakers! Pick a sneaker!” That’s the kind of man he is. After getting to know him and getting to spend time with him, he’s become more than just a man I play. He’s become a role model and an inspiration.

What do you do after playing such a compelling role like this?

I went straight to Aruba. It’s the first time in my life I felt like an adult like I could really use a break. I’ve never really gone on vacation in my life, so I treated myself to one and got some rest. But the project still hasn’t left me. It’s so heavy in my heart, so heavy in my soul. I think about what they went through all the time.
