Black-ish star Yara Shahidi attended HBO’s Luxury Lounge featuring PANDORA Jewelry at Four Seasons Hotel Los Angeles at Beverly Hills on January 10, 2015 in Beverly Hills, California


The day before, the young star was spotted at the Pilot Pen and GBK Luxury Lounge honoring Golden Globe nominees and presenters.

Yara recently chatted with Backstage  about her experiences auditioning for comedy series Black-ish.

When asked about her audition process for Black-ish, Yara noted that in her second audition for Black-ish she read with Anthony Anderson, with whom she had an immediate connection. She relayed: “I walk into the room and he’s sitting there in the chair. And I’m still a little nervous—less nervous ’cause it was such a good first audition—but we were wearing the same shoes in different colors!” From then on, it’s safe to say it was smooth sailing.

You can catch Yara Wednesdays, 9:30|8:30c on ABC.
