ELIXHER got the chance to chat with the super talented and stunning Sherri Saum, star of the new ABC Family series The Fosters. Sherri plays Lena Foster, a school principal and mom raising a multiethnic family with her partner Stef (played by Terri Palo). Just two episodes in, the series has garnered a ton of buzz for its intense drama—and, of course, having a same-sex couple play its leads. Sherri shares what it’s like playing a lesbian on screen and how the show plans to unpack some tough issues.
