Hi Heart of Hollywood Magazine readers, today I am presenting to you Steven Williams, the creator of Miss Bomba Claudie, “Jamaican Talk Show Host”. Steven is also the writer of the show. As a gifted writer, his TV pilot “The Inner Circle” debuted at HBO’s New York Latino Film Festival in 2017.
He started his professional work career as a corporate trainer in the banking industry and was always encouraged to do voice-over because all of his co-workers said that he had a nice voice. So Steven took voice-over classes and shortly after took acting classes. But after a while, Steven started to have more of affection for acting than voice-over.
After studying acting and performing in a few small plays, Steven decided to focus on producing and writing his own plays.
For those who are just learning about and enjoying the charm of Miss Bomba Claudie, what would you want our readers to know about her?
She is a person that is using her sense of humor and aggressive nature to mask her insecurities and sadness.
How would you describe yourself, Steven in three words?
Creative, Introverted, and sensitive.

What goes into and went into creating a character such as Miss Bomba Claudie?
I basically tap into my experiences of being raised by strong Jamaican women during my childhood. And then I combine those experiences with my wild imagination and then throw in a little Madea.
What are some upcoming shows that will be presented by Miss Bomba Claudie?
I am producing 6 shows from March 23 to March 26in New York City. I am super excited about these shows because this will be my first production in New York City in 4 years.
What else are you currently working on?
Currently, I am in the process of developing a web series about Whitney Houston in her teen years and I also am writing a web series based on three African sisters living in New York City.
What do acting and the entertainment industry mean to you?
Performing as an actor is a beautiful experience but the business of looking for work as an actor in the industry can be draining and frustrating. You need solid resilience to be in the entertainment industry because there is so much rejection and politics. Also getting access to the gatekeepers that can help you level up your career can be extremely difficult as well but you just can’t give up trying.
Where do you see your beloved Miss Bomba Claudie’s character in the future?
I see Miss Bomba Claudie touring the country via theatre shows and increasing her presence on all of the major social platforms.
