Jibreel Black

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

Sign… Libra

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!
