Weighing in at birth at a whopping 1 lb and 9 ozs each, twins Amari and Amir O’Neil have come a long way.
Both brothers, expressed interest in acting at a young age. When they turned seven-years-old, the twins were submitted to The Savage Agency in Los Angeles, CA and secured representation across the board. Two weeks later, the pair booked their first job in the role of “Michael” in White Water. Afterwards, Amari went on to land another big screen role as “Adam’s Brother” in I’m Dying Up Here where as Amir went on to land a role as “Darren” in Mann and Wife and most recently, as “Zachery” in the upcoming NBC comedy, Marlon.
The boys have worked along-side a who’s who of Hollywood greats including Sharon Leal, Larenze Tate, Barry Shabaka Henley, the late Bill Paxton, and more.
As if it were fate, Amir’s newest co-star, Notlim Taylor, also had an interesting start at life. Although she doesn’t share a twins story nor did she weigh-in at 1 lb and 9 ozs, she did make a spectacular entrance into the world, via emergency cesarean, kicking her leg out first, instead of her head.
At age four, Notlim began doing local still photography for small catalog companies. A few years later, she was signed with her first talent agent and was off to booking both commercials and major projects. Notlim has been seen in Grace Stirs Up Success as “Ella”, in Real House Husbands of Hollywood as “Lola”, Black-ish as “Cousin Cha-Cha”, Instant Mom as “Erin”, and most recently as the fourteen-year-old book work “Marley” in Marlon.
Marlon, loosely inspired by the real life of In Living Color and Scary Movie’s, Marlon Wayans, is an up-to-date classic family comedy. The story will center on a loving but immature father’s journey to co-parenting his two kids with their very-together mother.
We can’t wait to see more of these three nor NBC’s newest comedy, which will definitely hit the airwaves soon!
