How long have you been an actor?

As the oldest sibling of four with the task of “entertaining the family, “I was an actress before I really knew what that meant. But it became official when I landed the role of Dorothy in an Elementary School play. I joined drama club in both middle and High School and graduated from Howard University with a BFA in theater before coming to LA to pursue the big screen. 

 

What are some of your most recent productions?

Some of my most recent productions include ATHENA, a sci-fi thriller directed by Corey Grant that I co-wrote and Star in which will release in 2021. Another production I just wrapped is VERY FRIGHTENING TALES Directed by Dale Fabrigar. I had the extreme pleasure of acting alongside the legendary Sally Struthers and I can’t wait for all audiences, but especially horror fans, to see what we’ve cooked up. And Middleton Christmas  is out now and I’m so happy to have worked alongside such a giving cast and crew. 

As a cast member of Middleton Christmas, has organ donation affected your life in any way?

To me, organ donation was always a given. I’ve never understood why anyone wouldn’t check that box on their driver’s license, that could potentially save a life. Although I have not been personally affected, I hope the message of this film brings great awareness to the need for organ donors.  

Middleton Christmas was set during the holidays… What are some of your favorite holiday traditions?

Some of my favorite family traditions are cooking and singing together. My family is full of artists and we all think we’re top chefs. lol. Every moment turns into a  song or dance and every meal becomes a work of art. 

What was it like working with actors Micheal Paré and Eileen Davidson?

Michael and Eileen were absolutely sensational! They were so engaging both on and off screen and made everyone feel at home. We felt like family immediately, which is my favorite kind of set to be on. 

What are you looking forward to in 2021?

In 2021, I’m looking forward to people being kinder to one another and to themselves. We’ve been through a lot together this past year and when everything opens back up, I’m hopeful that despite the political climate, the country can become more unified than ever. 

In regards to production, I’m looking forward to reprising my role of TAMIKA in the TV series, PUMP as well as shooting a Thriller near the beginning of the year. I’m also looking forward  to a vacation somewhere…anywhere with beautiful beaches.
