What is your dream role?
A lead in a feature film that portrays a historic person or event. I’d like to help bring history to life for the newer generation to see.
In addition to acting, what are some other things that you like to do?
I love to sing, dance, horse back riding, and gymnastics.
What advice would you give kids who want to break into business?
I would just say go for it and work 100%, research and make sure you have a good support team. You have to work hard because nothing is going to fall out of the sky anonymously.
Do you have a particular style of acting…comedy, drama, etc. that you like best?
I really like all types of acting because I like being on stage and entertaining people. However, if I had to choose one genre I would say comedy because I like making people laugh.
You have done so much in your career. Can you tell us about your latest role in “The Payne’s”?
Yes I have been truly blessed in such a short time and I’m extremely grateful. Currently on Tyler Perry’s The Payne’s, I play Lynn, she’s eight years old and very wise beyond her years. Lynn tries to get into the grown-up’s business, but they make sure that she stay’s in her kid lane. She’s a very precocious child who’s curious about everything around her. She’s sweet and needs someone to love her. To find out more about Lynn you can tune in every Friday at 8/9c on the OWN network. You can also download the OWN app and watch it anytime.
