Yaya Alafia

Last year, Yaya left her America’s Next Top Model roots far behind when she delivered a powerful performance as a non-violent activist-turned-Black Panther in Lee Daniels’ The Butler.  Before that she acted, in Ugly Betty and the 2010 Oscar-nominated film The Kids Are Alright.

Clearly, this Harlem native has the chops to become a face in the film world.  She earned a lead role in the movie Big Words, which made its way around the festival circuit last year, and this year Yaya finds herself in good company once again with a role in Rob Reiner’s And So It Goes, starring Diane Keaton and Michael Douglas.
