Isaiah Russell-Bailey is an up-and-coming young actor, model, dancer, and parkour artist who is proving that he has hit Hollywood on a mission and is definitely there to stay.
The young Texas native started his career in 2017, landing roles such as ‘Burton’ in the Disney series Raven’s Home, as young ‘Dee’ in the CBS drama S.W.A.T., and ‘Young Kevon Winters’ in Criminal Minds. And of course, his star continues to rise full steam ahead with his newest project. Most recently, the young rising star joined the new Netflix series, Family Reunion, starring Tia Mowry, Loretta Divine, Richard Roundtree, and a BCK Online favorite, Lexi Underwood, adding another notch to his list of growing professional credits.
In the highly anticipated comedy, Bailey portrays the role of ‘Shaka,’ the mischievous, yet well-intentioned young son of the McKellan Family, as they move across the country to a small town in Georgia. Family Reunion has already become one of the most talked about new additions to Netflix as a result of its all-black writers room.
This incredibly talented 13-year-old with an infections smile and brilliant personality is also a top model for several national brands such as Skechers, Nike, GX by Gwen Stefani Eyewear, Under Armour, and Target.
When he’s not on set behind the camera, Bailey loves to break-dance, enjoy art, play basketball, dance and parkour. Isaiah studied parkour at the legendary JAM studio, where he would practice extreme jumps, tricks and stunts daily. Yet, there is another side to Bailey-altruism. With a heart of gold, the newest member of #younghollywood volunteers at soup kitchens within his local LA community to give back to the homeless.
