You know and love her as Amira on TBS’ show, The Last OG! Actress, Taylor Mosby has proven to be a young star and she’s just getting started. We sat down with Mosby to discuss her role on the hit series and her exciting new role in the film, Breakthrough produced by DeVon Franklin.
Tell us about your role in The Last OG.
My name is Taylor Mosby and on The Last OG, I play Amira who is the daughter of Shay (portrayed by Tiffany Haddish). Ryan Gaul plays my stepdad too. She is your typical teenager, sassy when she wants, strong, funny, and she has a twin brother.
How did you get into acting and did you always know this is what you wanted to do?
Well, I grew up in Oklahoma when I was little and there used to be small theaters in my area. I would try to be in Annie and every school play that I could. As I got older, I began to realize that this was the career that I wanted to pursue. I knew that I was a creative person and that this was something I really loved.
Tell our readers about your upcoming role in the film, Breakthrough.
Breakthrough comes out on Easter weekend. I’m very proud of this role. It is a true story. This is my first time portraying a real person. It’s very surreal working on this project. I got to work with DeVon Franklin and I am actually singing in the movie. I’m very excited about that! This is my first film that will be in movies. It’s a lot of firsts for me in this film.
What was it like working with such big names in the entertainment industry for this project?
Chrissy Metz is absolutely amazing. We’ve actually worked together before; she made appearances on The Last OG. When we met then she was telling me all about the business, her aspect, and teaching me things I’d never been taught before. She is such a professional! You don’t realize that you are surrounded by greatness until you step away from it.
What can we expect to see from Taylor Mosby in the future?
Well, I know right now I am looking into directing. I’m learning that I really like being behind the camera. This year, I will probably do a lot of work in front of the camera, behind the camera, and writing my own things, music wise. You can see me on the second season of The Last OG and Breakthrough! There will be a lot of things this year!
