Nelsan Ellis is among the talent set to perform at Love A Life fundraiser at the Soho House. He recently answered questions from The Hollywood Reporter about what happened in his life to make this fight so important and personal to him.

The Hollywood Reporter: What got you into this?

Nelsan Ellis: “My mom passed away from cancer last year. It was painful to watch and to have no assistance from the medical profession, other than morphine. There was nothing they could do. That was probably the most god-awful thing.” (Read entire interview.)
