Emmy Award winner Sterling K. Brown still hasn't spoken to the attorney he portrayed in hit TV drama The People v. O.J. Simpson.
The actor picked up his Emmy on Sunday (18Sep16) for his portrayal of prosecutor Christopher Darden in the series, but he has yet to meet the man he played on screen.
"I heard that he watched the Emmys and was happy for me, so I appreciate that," Brown told Access Hollywood Live. "We've never spoken and for a while I thought that we would. Right now, it's OK.
"It was a dark place for him and having walked through his shoes (sic) for a few months I can understand why it was a dark place and why he wasn't eager to revisit it, so I hold nothing against him."
Darden became a household name in America when he was assigned to the prosecution of O.J. Simpson during his time with the Los Angeles County District Attorney's office.
He and Marcia Clark attempted to prove the sportsman and actor murdered his wife and her friend Ron Goldman in 1994. Simpson was acquitted the following year.
Darden, who "respectfully declined" to speak to Brown as he researched his role in the TV drama, told news show Entertainment Tonight he was "very happy" the actor picked up gold at the Emmys for playing him.
"It's a tremendous thing after all of these years, for an actor to play me and do a great job!" Darden said, revealing he has never actually watched The People v. O.J. Simpson.
"For me, it was a hugely negative life experience," he added. "For me to have to revisit it, it really drags me to a very dark and angry place. I don't want to go back to 1995."
Darden reveals Brown did reach out to him before the TV series, but it was too late at night and he wasn't in the mood for a chat. He now says that if the "big shot Hollywood actor" still wants to talk "during the daylight hours", he'd take his call.
