Actress, model, recording artist, and personality Alyssa Cheatham’s name and face may both be familiar. As Will Smith’s daughter in the Warner Bros feature film, Collateral Beauty, this multi-talented young entertainer’s star was just beginning to rise and now, she has unquestionably become a recognizable member of #younghollywood.
Since her blockbuster role in Collateral Beauty, Cheatham has been busy with an abundance of additional projects on screen and in the sound booth and her latest, Nickelodeon’s brand new preschool series, Santiago of the Seas, is about to set sail in October.

Today is my birthday! I am 11 years old!!! I am also so excited to share a secret that I’ve been keeping for over two years!!!! Nickelodeon’s brand new preschool series #SantiagoOfTheSeas is coming this fall! This news was JUST announced, worldwide! So, now I can tell you that I have a series regular role on the animated @nickjr show, as a singing mermaid named Lorelai 🧜🏾♀️🧜🏾♀️🧜🏾♀️ who can transform from mermaid to girl, as I move between land and sea! Santiago of the Seas, is a cartoon-adventure show infused with Spanish language and Latino-Carribean culture curriculum, following a brave and kind 8-year-old pirate, Santiago "Santi" Montes, as he embarks on daring rescues, searches for treasures and keeps the high seas safe in a fantastical Caribbean world. As part of Santi’s crew, we navigate the seas, help animals and people, and solve problems along the way! The @nickelodeon show is so entertaining and educational! You’ll get to hear me speak multiple languages, since my character can speak any language in world and I do lots of singing! Voicing this role and watching her come to life, was the coolest experience!!!! Thank you so much to my agent @pamelamgoldman for the opportunity and thank you to the rest of my team @robynlb129 @spencernachman @stephcorvino and my mom/coach @icoachstars for helping me achieve my dreams! Somebody pinch me!!! This doesn’t even feel real 😭❤️. I was wondering how my birthday this year was going to turn out, with everything going on. I have to say though, this is truly the best birthday gift ever. I definitely could not have imagined this 🤩😍.
