The multi-lingual, multi-ethnic, multi-talented, intelligent Brown University graduate Yaya da Costa. Too much? Not for the new cover of W.
W Who times 6: Yaya DaCosta
Second runner up for America’s Next Top Model, Yaya’s career flourished afterwards as she began acting. Remember “Take the Lead” with Antonio Banderas? There she was dancing. Then she stopped the dance and decided to play parts in independent movies such as “Honeydripper” (2007) and the “Messenger” (2009). A few moments of Soap-tv with All My Children, a stop by Broadway. Daughter of the excruciating Wilhelmina Slater on Ugly Betty, all the way to a role next to Annette Benning in “The Kids Are All Right”. Last but definitely not least: landing a supporting role in the upcoming “Tron Legacy”.
Really it’s too much to take it all in. W explains why she is part of the 6 fabulous new actresses they have decided for their cover as their being “fearless” and have a better knack at acting than young male actors. We are definitely scarily impressed. Oh Ya Ya.
