Five year-old Leah Sava Jeffries is described on her Instagram page as an “actress, model, singer, rapper, daughter, and sister”. Last year, the pint-sized star added another slash to her resume by becoming a child ambassador for haircare company Carol’s Daughter kids line, CD4Kids. More recently, she was cast for a role on the Fox series Empire.
Leah made her television debut on the hit show last month. She was booked for the recurring role of Lola, the daughter of actor Jussie Smollet’s character Jamal Lyons and Jamal’s ex-wife Olivia played by actress Raven-Symoné. In a recent episode of Empire, we learn that Lola is in fact the daughter of Lucious Lyons, Jamal’s dad!
Miss Jeffries lives in Detroit, Michigan with her parents and her brother Floyd Jeffries IIII, who is also an upcoming actor.
FOX will air the two-hour season finale of EMPIRE Wednesday night March 18th at 9 p.m. ET/PT.
