Regine Nehy did not come up short in her role. She delivered in this film. The beautiful and talented actress didn't have a lot of scenes but when she was on camera she shined. Nehy plays Celia Turner, a frustrated teen dealing with an overly strict, prejudice, psycho father and the recent death of her mother. The poor girl is angry, but has a rebellious streak.
I chatted with Nehy at the coffee shop and she told me she'll be appearing in the star-studded "Death at a Funeral," produced by my favorite comedian Chris Rock. Martin Lawrence and Tracy Morgan and Danny Glover are reportedly also on board. According to Variety, the film is a remake of a dark British comedy about a father who dies and all kinds of secrets and drama come alive at the funeral. Rock is going to do the black remix to the plot. Check for that in 2010.
Nehy is only 21 and has a lot of promise. The Philly native has also been in the film "Pride", ABC's "Grey's Anatomy and "Lincoln Heights. " Hollywood give this sista more roles. I love Beyonce and Halle Berry but as I've said many times on this blog they're not the only black women who can read a script. There are talented sistas out there who can bring the fire on camera if just given a chance. Regine Nehy is a rising star and I look forward to seeing her in more productions.
If you saw "Lakeview Terrace" what did you think? Speak your mind in the comments section.
