Oprah Winfrey is bringing The Immortal of Life of Henrietta Lacks, the true story of a Johns Hopkins patient, to HBO, and Oprah sightings have been reported around Baltimore.

The media mogul and former WJZ anchor is playing Deborah Lacks, whose mother Henrietta was treated for cervical cancer at Johns Hopkins in the 1950s. Cancer cells were harvested from her body without consent and used in medical experiments. The “HeLa” cell line was subsequently used in many important and lucrative medical breakthroughs for decades without her family’s knowledge.

So far Oprah has been seen outside the Real News Network building by a Baltimore Sun reporter and Fox News Baltimore reporter snapped a picture of her in character by the water:

 

This sighting doesn’t include Oprah, but it’s a pretty cool look at the period costumes for the Henrietta Lacks scenes:

Wait a second – was that Henrietta Lacks I just saw? #johnshopkins #oprah

Today is supposed to be the last day of filming in Baltimore, so if you want to see the queen of all media in the city, the window of opportunity is closing!
