It’s been a bit since I posted an update. I make sure to keep you guys updated by way of photos and such, but I’ve been running around doing some updates, so here I am!
Alot of exciting new updates to share!!!
First off, I’m expecting my 10th child right now. You may ask, “Are you MAD woman?” The answer is YES! , lol I love children. I didn’t plan it this way, but my grandmother always said I wanted ten children and I’ve always told her that she was wrong. She passed away in March and she was my heart and soul. I got pregnant shortly after and didn’t even know it. I think it was a gift that she had sent to me, so, for that, I’ll be forever grateful.
I did my first pregnancy shoot some time ago for AFROPUNK and it was very well received.
After I found out I was pregnant, I thought it would be a good idea to slow down on filming. I take small gigs here and there and I still make appearances. Even though I decided to slow down on filming, I took a rather large project; MY OWN COMICBOOK!! YES! I thought that is was going to be something small, but its snowballing into this huge thing and I’m so excited. I’m also abit nervous. I’m producing the comic so it’s alot of work, but I welcome it. The comic will be horror/manga style .
The title of the book is called: Cat O’ Nine Tales; The misadventures of Tha Original Gata
I have a most dynamic modeling cast for this project and I’m stoked to have a mixture of up and coming talent peppered with iconic talent as well.
Here’s some of the cast list:
Tha Original Gata (hey, that’s me!), Tommy Dreamer (ecw), Lloyd Kaufman, Tony Todd (24, Platoon, Candyman), David Chen, Anthony Saint Thomas, Mone’t Dupree, Liberty Dupree, Matthew Ewald, Ravienn Vatea Moore, X’iandra Moore, Allison Kempe, Julia Kempe, Ben Church, Apple Angel, Ronan Duncan and many more.
The comic comes from the brilliant mind of Anthony S. Thomas and the amazing artistry of Dennis Willman
Tha Gata coming has been shaping up nicely. I even have a street team spread all across the country spreading the word on the comicbook. I count myself blessed.
In addition, I have afew films coming out this summer. In two weeks, a film that I worked on called “FearFighter” will be out. I play a police officer in that flick. I’ll give you guys more information as I have it. Also another film called “Dead Woman’s Hollow” will be coming out soon as well.
Soooo many more updates, but let’s stick with this for now. I’m blessed to be working and I thank you guys for your continued support.
