When Jordyn had a moment to stop, she spoke with Gemma Magazine, and we could not have been more thrilled. We talk about her acting roles, her singing, and her love for fashion and style. So let's get into it!
How did you get started in the entertainment industry? At the age of 2, I started in the industry with print work which led to commercials. However, at age 6, I began to dive into theatrical work, and I loved bringing characters to life. This led to a greater appreciation for the entertainment industry, and my interest became a passion.
How would you describe your character, Shamiah, on "Home Economics?" You are fantastic on the show! Thank you so much! It is an honor to bring Shamiah to the show. Shamiah is very sweet and adores her moms. She is proud of her heritage and is very socially conscious. She loves nothing more than her family.
The cast and crew of "Home Economics" are all incredible artists. It must be a blast to work with and learn from the cast and crew. Can you please expand? The cast and crew of "Home Economics" are all incredible artists. Every day is a learning experience, and each one brings their unique spin to the show! It has been incredible seeing how the writers have expanded the storylines, and I am thankful to everyone who has tuned in and fallen in love with The Hayworth Family.
How did you enjoy being on "The Neighbors" (as Kayla Watkinson) from CBS as well as Disney Channel's "Raven's Home" (as Alexandra)? I am so grateful for each of these experiences. Having the opportunity to work with such icons in the industry, Cedric the Entertainer, and Raven Symone was such an honor. Similar but different in their ways was the chance to see the evolution of both of my characters. It was a blast!
You have done it all! Film, Television, Theatre, and YouTube. Do you have a favorite genre, or do you like them all in different ways? I like them all in different ways, but I am looking forward to doing a drama feature film one day. Comedy is such a natural state for me, so I have learned to grow in my drama auditions and would love to have this opportunity.
What was your theatre experience like in "A Tale of Two Sisters?" Thank you so much for asking about this. I have always had a passion for broadway/theatre. Not only was it an honor to be cast to portray the "Young Phylicia Rashad" but to have the live experience of acting, singing, dancing, etc baton twirling was exhilarating in every way.
Do you enjoy fashion, and who are some of your favorite designers or brands? You are super stylish. You, also, have walked the runway, correct? I love fashion and find it similar to acting. Every time I wear an outfit, it brings out a different aspect of my personality. It is so fun to mix styles, upcycle and create my fashion fun. Yes, I tend to be eclectic in brands or designers. I love the details of Gucci but adore the fanciful feel of Selkie. I had the incredible opportunity to walk in LA and NYC Fashion week shows for several seasons. It was a unique artistic experience for each designer to trust me to bring their design to life.
Can you please tell us a bit about your singing career? You co-produced and released your first song 'Lift Me Up' in 2019? I love singing, and "Lift Me Up" came to me when I started understanding the impact of bullying. I started playing the ukulele and found my lyrics, and the ukulele just evolved to the song. Co-producing was such a great experience, and I am looking forward to releasing more music in the future.
Finally, tell us about Jordyn's Joy, an organization that spreads hope and love to underprivileged children. Giving back has always been a part of my life. There is nothing more Joyful than to know a simple gesture impacted someone else's life. Whether it be toy drives, book drives, coat drives, or supporting other organizations who are making a difference is the preface of Jordyn's Joy.
