One ‘lil cancellation can’t hold her down! That’s the approach that actress Ryan Destiny is taking these days following recent news that she has officially joined the upcoming season of Freeform’s Grownish. This is of course, Destiny’s first gig since FOX announced that her hit series Star was cancelled after three seasons.
The cast of the Yara Shaidi-led Grownish just grew by one more…and she’s melanin queen to say the least. According to @Shadow_Act, Ryan will step into a recurring role on the series which just began production on its third season this week.
Her character, Jillian, is described as a no nonsense HBCU transfer student who comes to Cal U to study filmmaking. Additionally, “Jillian can talk art and music with Luca (Luka Sabbat), politics and activism with Aaron (Trevor Jackson), and also fits right in with Zoey (Yara Shahidi) and her eclectic crew of girls.”
Meanwhile, Star fans may have the closure to the abruptly cancelled series they’ve been hoping for, if creator Lee Daniels follows through on his promise. He previously said that the musical drama series would tie up the loose ends in the season three finale with a TV movie.
Roommates, are you here for Ryan Destiny shaking things up on Grownish?
