The Good Fight star Nyambi Nyambi uses Headspace app to let it

first_img1:40 Nyambi Nyambi plays investigator Jay DiPersia on The Good Fight. Justin Stephens/CBS How we operate on social media can tell people a lot about us — and can be great fodder for drama.Nyambi Nyambi, who plays investigator Jay DiPersia in the legal and political drama The Good Fight, said that technology plays a huge part in his character’s work.”People put so much information about themselves and the community around them online that the digital imprint left behind can be clues into who they are at different moments in a day,” he said. “It seems like we are in a time where people are openly being transparent about their lives, but even if they are not, there’s a digital profile that will tell their story.”As a follow-up to the hit show The Good Wife, The Good Fight joined CBS All Access’ lineup in 2017. Its third season premieres Thursday. (Editors’ note: CBS is CNET’s parent company.)Nyambi, who describes DiPersia as a “moral compass,”  told CNET what to expect from season 3 of The Good Fight — and also shared a few of his favorite apps.”Fans can expect an explosive exploration into race, politics, gender equality, love, betrayal and more,” Nyambi said. “What I love about our show are the immense chances our writers take and how they push us actors to explore the deeper issues that plague our humanity and are incredibly relevant today.”Nyambi said he leaves online investigation to DiPersia, though. While he likes to use Google’s search engine, Instagram, Twitter, Facebook and IMDb, he doesn’t dive too far into another person’s online presence unless it’s for a script.”Generally, I prefer knowing as little as possible so when it comes time for a face-to-face conversation, I’m pleasantly or unpleasantly surprised by what I learn and hopefully come away with a deeper experience,” Nyambi said. “Jay is the opposite. He will go in and know everything he can. Information is power. Jay shares what you need to know, not necessarily what you want to know.”Here’s more of our conversation:Q: What’s the one app that you use the most? Why?Nyambi: The one app I use the most is Headspace. I meditate daily to acknowledge the crazy and let it go.What’s the last app you downloaded? Why?The last app I downloaded was Filmic Pro. I just took a workshop on how to make documentaries and the class has got me excited to maximize the capabilities of my phone to tell cinematic stories.When you wake up in the morning, what are the first apps you look at? Why?The first apps I look at when I wake up in the morning depends on the alerts awaiting me overnight. It ranges from ESPN to The New York Times. When there are no alerts, emails or texts to open, the first app I’m on is Lumosity, playing brain games.If you could invent your own app, what would it do?If I could invent my own app, it would be something that not only allowed for digital readers to consume their favorite comics, but one that bridges the gap between that and their local community by incentivizing and encouraging these readers to connect with, regularly visit and support their local comic book store(s).If there was an app that could save civilization, what would it be?If there was an app that could save civilization, it would be Headspace because we simply don’t take the time to breathe deep and empathize.Are you an Android or Apple user? Why?I actually own both an Android and an Apple phone.
