Marlon Wayans Lets “Love Remain” With ‘Marlon’ Journey

Marlon Wayans has always been a gifted and refreshingly unpredictable comedic actor. Though going for the joke is a great avenue, Wayans admits that he’s grown as an artist during his Marlon journey. Check out the video below for details!

Amidst the comedy of Marlon lies the true essence of the show – unconditional love is an important aspect of keeping a family together (Marlon Wayans and Essence Atkins play Marlon and Ashley, a divorced couple who support each other through thick and thin as they raise their children).

“It’s great to explore the relationship (between Marlon and Ashley). At the end of the day whether they’re together or not, you’re always going to be together because you always have love. That’s the message I want to send every last single person that watches this show. You make children. You love somebody once. You can forgive and you can love them forever – just differently. They don’t have to stay in the same glass. Love is water. Pour it into a different glass. If it doesn’t fit,  pour it into a different glass. But it still will be love – so let love remain.” – Marlon Wayans

***In the video below, Wayans also talks about how he’s grown as an artist with his experience on Marlon. Essence Atkins is also featured in the clip (Marlon also refers to co-creator Christopher Moynihan and exec producer Rick Alvarez):

Marlon airs its final two episodes of the first season Wednesday, September 13 on NBC (starting at 9 pm et/pt).
