Janelle Monáe initially made her mark as a Grammy nominated recording artist and her progression into film and television has been pretty seamless with roles in award-winning films such as "Hidden Figures" and "Moonlight." With two more projects on the way, our #SeeHER Spotlight Celebrity is poised to break out.
With a starring role on season 2 of the Amazon series "Homecoming" and the horror film "Antebellum" available On Demand September 18th, Janelle is getting the opportunity to show her measure. Actively seeking more scripts and the freedom to play parts across the full spectrum of any narrative is her objective.
Not one to be stereotyped, Janelle is passionate about elevating the multi-layered dimension of women of color:
"I'm focusing on, right now my career is how we can put forward more films and television shows that show our range, that show, you know, our brilliance in many areas and show us as human beings, complete human beings."
Janelle is engineering her own vision of where she wants to go and what she wants to accomplish. We're looking forward to the ride.
