Triple threat actress, singer, and comedian Gabrielle Nevaeh Green is most known for her starring role in the reboot of the hit ‘90s show Nickelodeon show, All That. In addition to that, Green is popularly known on social media for her celebrity impersonations that include Cardi B, Beyoncé, and more! We caught up with this young sensation to discuss her exciting roles, quarantine life so far, and much more.
Tell us about your experience working on the reboot of All That.
Working on All That has been an absolute DREAM! I am so blessed to have the opportunity to work with such an amazing cast along with a few of the original members of All That! I am so grateful for all of the amazing opportunities that God has given me!
What was it like working on the television show, Unfiltered?
Working on a show like Unfiltered is definitely something that I’ve never done before! We shoot the entire production from the comfort of our own homes, which means that my parents and I suddenly become hair, makeup, lighting, and tech support! It was defiantly a learning curve for all of us, but I have an absolute BLAST doing it! I’m also very lucky to have the opportunity to do this show with two of my good friends! Darci Lynne and Lex Lumpkin are both so talented and Jay Pharoah is a master of impressions so it’s really amazing to get to learn from him!
You caught a lot of attention with your impersonations of celebrities such as Beyoncé and Cardi B. How did that start?
Yes! I actually did my Beyoncé impression in my audition for All That and the writers liked it enough to put it in the show! At the time, I had no clue what a big deal the impression was going to be! I also do an impression of Cardi B, which has gained attention from the Rap star herself! I have so much fun doing both impressions and I have a couple more on the way!
How has quarantine life been for you?
Quarantine has definitely been different. I’m extremely grateful to have this extra time to spend with my family, but I also miss doing everyday things like going to the movies or hanging with friends. I’ve been doing my best to try and maximize this extra time that I have on my hands by working on music, merchandise, new characters and impressions, along with my children’s book which is on its way!
What can we expect to see from you in the future?
In the future, I hope to continue to be an inspiration and a positive influence on others and leave an effective impact on this world. It’s really important to me to use my voice for good and to speak on causes that I’m really passionate about. In addition, I also hope to expand my acting career into movies and more television shows, while also cranking out some new music for you guys!
