Jibreel Black is from Cincinnati, Ohio and moved to Los Angles last year. Since arriving here, he's been striving to place himself in position to be a servant of advancement for the culture of acting. As the African American community is still underrepresented on screen, he is working on changing that while moving in peace and striving to love with patience.
I am (use a max. of 3 words to describe yourself)… focused, pliable and original
My last acting gig taught me… who you are is more interesting than you as an actor
Proudest performance moment… being new to the Game I don't have one yet!
Most embarrassing audition… A last minute rush audition where I wasn't connected to the lines at all and the casting director was asking me to do all of these exercises to connect to the lines.. it just didn't work lol
Most challenging part… Idk about part yet. The most challenging thing for me to do in a role is bring myself to the role and not be afraid 😳
The moment I knew I wanted to be an actor... was when I was working in a factory without windows and daylight. I saw acting as a way to serve as a light to others in times of darkness
If I weren't an actor, I'd be... I'd be an actor. Everything is a role! Lol no I'll probably be a firefighter or a bodyguard
Dying to work with... Spike Lee and Denzel Washington
Was born to play... a mad scientist who tried to make everyone the same
Learn lines by... reading them a bunch of times and writing them down
Get into character by... top secret. Involves ice cream and a day at the park
Acting is… not acting at all. Good acting a least. It's real.
Special skill I wouldn't put on my resume… I can cook!
Movie I can’t stop talking about... Fences!
Top three Netflix / Amazon shows in my queue… Shameless, Barry, Atlanta
Currently reading… Letters to My Daughter by Maya Angelou
Car karaoke tune... Bad and Boujee, Chicken Fried and Wagon Wheel
Star Wars character that best represents me... the space crafts because I just want to carry a lot of life
If they made a movie about my life, I’d be played by… me I hope!
Actor crush... Christina Milian
If I were a color, I'd be… black. Black is cool because when you think about it, it's not a color at all.
Fave travel destination… home in Cincinnati, Ohio. But I want to go to Fiji 🇫🇯
LA spot that inspires or relaxes me… Santa Monica
The best advice I ever got… know your role and play your role.. I apply this to Life!
