About Syd

Born, raised, and residing in Brooklyn, New York, Syd is an actress on the rise. From having both leading and supporting roles in web series', short films, commercials, and music videos, as well as promotional model experience, she is passionate about her career and will stop at nothing until her face is seen all over and her voice is heard. Syd graduated from Howard University with a degree in Radio, Television and Film, with a minor in Theatre Arts; her skill set is both in front of and behind the camera, making her extra special. She is constantly auditioning, working, booking, rehearsing, self submitting, networking, building relationships, and taking ownership of her present and future. She is currently training with well-renowned acting coach Anthony Abeson in NYC.

Syd is passionate about being a Brown face that other Brown faces, young and old, can look to for inspiration and reminding them that no dream is too big and nothing is impossible.
