Terrence Terrell, raised in Mississippi, displayed an affinity for entertainment at a young age. As a child, he would entertain anyone who would watch and listen. The 80’s hit “My Prerogative” by Bobby Brown was one of the first songs he sang, danced and even performed to. “I don’t know what it was but there was something about it that made me just want to move” recalls Terrell. Throughout his teenage years, he was bullied, but coped by turning the negativity into humor. As an adult, Terrell moved out of Mississippi to Los Angeles, California, to pursue a dream of acting and writing.
Terrence has landed roles in major videos from pop icon Beyonce to Lady Gaga. His acting roles have included various films including appearances on several major networks including Fox, NBC & Showtime.
After several years of labor and love, Terrell has penned his first children’s book which he holds dear to his heart. Based on his childhood, Blacky is an uplifting story about a young boy’s journey to self-confidence. Blacky will encourage readers to embrace the things that make them different.
Aside from releasing his upcoming new children’s book, Terrell is also very busy in the land of film and television. He just wrapped playing lead in the new Ariana Grande featuring Future video for “Everyday,” and can also be seen recurring on Criminal Minds Season 12 (CBS) opposite Aisha Tyler. “Writing Blacky was such an edifying experience for me because now I get paid for my unique looks” says Terrell.
