ELIXHER Chats With ABC Family 'The Fosters' Star Sherri Saum

June 11, 2013

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.
