What a month!

What a month it's been- I started the month by joining the cast of a pilot, where I got to become Christine Daae from "Phantom of the Opera". I had 4 night shoots in a row, then got on a plane to NC, and started filming a feature film the next day, where I worked another 9 days of night shoots. I'm now in Nashville for a writing trip.
I am blissfully happy and exhausted, and so lucky to have the best job in the world. I'm so grateful for the work and excited for my friends who are all having great successes in their careers and lives.
I'm especially grateful for my wonderful family and my rockin' agents.

"The Birth of a Nation" Wins Big at Sundance Awards!


Following an amazing week at the Sundance Film Festival, I am so proud and excited to announce that “The Birth of a Nation” just took home the U.S. Dramatic Audience Award, and the U.S. Dramatic Grand Jury Award at the Sundance Film Festival 2016!

I'm so honored and happy to be a part of this beautiful film, and can't wait to share more exciting news as it unfolds!!!

"The Birth of a Nation" Record-breaking week at Sundance


I am so honored to be a part of the gorgeous film "The Birth of a Nation", which has had a record-breaking week at the Sundance Film Festival. Following our spectacular premiere screening yesterday afternoon, we signed a $17.5 million deal with Fox Searchlight this morning. Even though we received a $20 million bid from Netflix, the highest bid in Sundance history, we signed with Fox Searchlight following their enormous Oscar success with "12 Years a Slave" (Best Picture 2014). The response we've gotten from the press and festival has been overwhelmingly positive and exciting.


"The Birth of a Nation" tells the true story of slave-turned-revolutionary Nat Turner, who led a rebellion against the violent slaveowners of Southampton County, VA in 1861. I play Catherine Turner, the daughter of the plantation-owning Turner family, from which Nat took his surname.


This relevant film comes at a time of great social struggle and conversation, and aims to put a spotlight on the racial issues that still plague our country to this day.


Thank you for letting me share my exciting news with you!


Sundance 2016!!


I am SO honored and humbled to announce that our beautiful film "The Birth of a Nation", the story of the incredible Nat Turner, is going to Sundance Film Festival and will be in the Dramatic Competition. I play the role of Catherine Turner, and will be starring alongside Nate Parker, Armie Hammer, Aja Naomi King, Gabrielle Union, Penelope Ann Miller, and so many more. This story is one of upmost importance, and I'm so lucky to have a part in telling it. Congratulations to my fellow cast members, and I'll see you guys at Sundance!…/

This event, called WeDay, is part of a much larger cause called WeAct, which implements the goals of the largest network of children helping children, "Free the Children". 

I am truly honored and humbled to have had the opportunity to share the stage with the Jonas Brothers, Carly Rae Jepsen, Fifth Harmony, Her Majesty the Queen Noor of Jordan, Martin Luther King III, Spencer West, and Craig and Marc Kielburger (the founders of Free the Children and the "We" movement).

Below you'll find a link to my performance. Thank you so much to WeDay and its sponsors for making this a truly life-changing experience for me and for the 18,000 students who earned their way there.
