Although Williams has come a long way, she explains that the road to her success was full of rejections and not smooth-sailing.

Williams described her character as “authentic to me and the women that I have in my life. … What I also love about her, and I related to, was that she has relationships in her life but is not defined by them. Really what she wants is to succeed in her career as a playwright and as a comedian and actress.” The Incredible Jessica James will be released on Netflix on July 28.
