1. How did you get started acting?
I started at the age of 4 1/2. My grandmother decided I had a special gift after I recited the Pledge of allegiance, a ceremony for President Obama was elected into office.
2. What was your time on set like working on The Neighbors?
My time on set of The Neighbors was really cool. I took part in their silly talent show.
3. What was the best part of filming for Sam & Cat?
Every day was the best. I’m was such a huge fan of Sam & Cat. I often told my grandmother, one day I wanted to be on it. Next thing I knew I auditioned and got the part. It was so cool filming Sam & Cat. I was proud of myself going to Nickelodeon studio daily. I had my name on the dressing room. Everyone spoiled me.
4. How did you enjoy being on set with Jennette McCurdy?
Jennette McCurdy mostly stayed in her dressing room didn’t really mingle, she was silly at times. But Ariana Grande were very protective. She would sing, showed me around the set. Most fun ever!
5. What has the experience been like being a reporter for FTS Kids News?
FTS opened doors for me to work with HipHop Real Estate. I’m able to interview A list actors & singers.
6. Do you have a favorite segment you have worked on?
My favorite segment is with Kevin Frazier from Entertainment Tonight & Anthony Anderson from black-ish. It was a Luncheon with Anthony Anderson, Kevin Fraiser told me to stay away from Anthony Anderson and called me Dr. Brianni Walker, and compared me to Oprah Winfrey. Anthony Anderson was very silly. He had promised to put me on black-ish. My other segment was 48th NAACP Image Awards. Interviewing Jussie Smollette, Cheryl Underwood, Loni Love, Aisha Tyler, Miles Brown, Lorretta Devine, Cris Phee the creator of Doc McStuffins, Well everyone was fabulous to interview. Such a wonderful time.
7. How cool was it to get to film a Chuck E Cheese commercial?
Chuck E. Cheese was my first national commercial. I was 8 years old when it aired. I was doing homework when it came on.. It was so weird watching myself on tv.
8. What was your reaction when you saw your Pfizer commercial air for the first time?
My reaction when I first saw Pfizer, I screamed, jumped up and down, and recited my lines and relived the scene. So funny!
9. Who have been some of your favorite people to work with?
Love working with Jennette McCurdy, Ariana Grande, Ben Affleck, Live By Night, Kevin Hart & Ed Helm on Captain Underpants, K.Michelle, Kenya Moore Music Video and Jason Cook, Days Of Our Lives (Shawn Douglas Brady)on his new film The Creatress.
10. What has been your favorite project to do so far?
My most favorite project was filming Niara. I play Imani, kidnapped in Kenya. The role was very challenging because I only had one line. It was all emotional. I had to learn how to spy and help kill foreigner visiting our country. Everything I’ve done was my favorite. I truly love interviewing celebrities, and working with new people. But I would have to say the No Bullying Campaign. We need to fight back against bullying. I enjoyed working and interviewing celebrities on the red carpet.
Is there anything else you would like to add?
I hope to co-host with Kevin Frazier, Ellen Degeneres, Wendy Williams, Steve Harvey, The Real, The Talk. If you dream big, set goals, never take no as a setback. Keep going, God has something better for you.
