Talia Jackson: The Next Yara Shahidi

Talia Jackson

Move over Zendaya, Yara Shahidi and Amandla Stenberg - 18-year old actress, singer and star of Netflix's "Family Reunion" Talia Jackson is establishing her place among Gen Z Hollywood and other leading voices of her generation - plus, she has that singing edge that shoots Jackson to the cool factor. 
Talia stars alongside Loretta Devine as Tia Mowry-Hardict's character's oldest daughter, 'Jade McKellan,' in Netflix's NAACP nominated multi-generational live-action comedy "Family Reunion" (season 1B premieres on Monday, January 20th), penned entirely by black writers, and draws from the personal stories of its writers, including creator and veteran executive producer Meg DeLoatch ("Family Matters"), who got the idea when she went to a family reunion in Georgia three years ago. Season 1B of "Family Reunion" follows the McKellans as they stick it out in small-town Georgia with even more antics under M'Dear's roof. From a wedding and boyfriend drama to a step showdown and sibling squabbles, the party's just getting started. This season, Talia's character will tackle social norms and showcase her vocal prowess with the debut of Jade's new single "This is Me, No Apologies."
