You play Hilary Banks in the new NBC Peacock series, “Bel-Air." What attracted you to this role and how did you prepare for it?


Hillary is a lot like me. She’s very driven and focused on improving herself in an industry that doesn’t always cater to women who look like her. It was easy to get into character because of the similar journey I’ve had navigate in the entertainment industry.


Do you have a favorite behind-the-scenes moment from filming?


My favorite behind the scenes memories have to be the dinner/breakfast scenes, when everyone in the cast is all together. We’re always creating songs, dances, and freestyles. It’s the loudest behind the scenes you’ll ever see lol


You're also a talented singer and just released your new single, "Caliber." How would you describe your music to a new fan?


I would describe my music as upbeat, uplifting, and sexy.


Your Instagram is full of beautiful pictures of you in a creative wardrobe. Who is your favorite designer and why?


One of my favorite designers right now is LaQuan Smith.I feel like his pieces are the perfect balance of edgy and classy.
