STEAL THIS LOOK: Actress Christina Cooper At The 2017 ESPY Awards
She's young. She's wild. She's free. She's the beautiful and talented Christina Cooper.
If you're not familiar with Christina, don't worry, you soon will be. Christina played Miko in the hit Netflix series, "Dear White People" (which if you haven't checked out yet, you definitely should!) and will be starring in the upcoming series, "Fourth Down" as Korryn, an aspiring actress who relocates to LA at the expense of leaving her longtime boyfriend, Jay, who is a big-time football player living in Houston, Texas.
Christina gave me the deets on her upcoming role, and how she felt walking the red carpet at this year's ESPY awards.
- It was so amazing! Definitely a bucket list experience. I did a few interviews on the carpet and got to talk about the "Fourth Down" show I'm on, as well as my role on Dear White People. I also met some really amazing people. I couldn't have done it without my amazing publicist & friend Suria Ross.
What is the new tv show "Fourth Down" about?
- It's a TV series that follows the lives of the women involved with professional football players. An aspiring actress (Korryn) and her pro football boyfriend find themselves on the last down of their relationship as long distance, side chicks and career differences tests their commitment towards one another.
Tell me about your role in the show.
- So my character goes by the name of Korryn, and she is extremely relatable to me. Korryn is driven, focused, and committed to anything she puts her mind to. It makes it a bit easier to portray the character naturally because I can personally relate to a few of her characteristics and situations. Korryn is an aspiring actress living in LA and wants to be known for her talent, not just for being the girlfriend of a famous athlete. I am so grateful to the creator of the show, Dorothy Outley, for casting me in such an amazing project. She is such an amazing writer!
