Popularly known for her role on the Netflix original series Raising Dion, Alisha Wainwright is an American actress and model.
Things don’t always go the way they were planned, and Alisha is the perfect example of it. So, let’s get to know more about Alicia Keys' look-alike, Alisha Wainwright.
Alisha Wainwright Bio: Early Life and Education
Alisha Ena Wainwright was born on July 14, 1989, in Florida. While we do know that her father, Jeff Wainwright is a music producer, the information regarding her Jamaican mother has yet to be revealed. Growing up, Alisha was highly influenced culturally by her parents because of their completely different heritages.
Talking about her educational background, the Raising Dion actress was a brilliant student. She attended the University of Florida, where she majored in Botany. After graduating, she studied plant reproductive biology and seedling recruitment at the Smithsonian Tropical Research Institute in Panama.
While she did have a keen interest in science, due to insufficient funding, she had to shift her interest in a broader direction.
Career as an Actress
Alisha first stepped into the acting world after performing her first professional gig for Apple Maps app commercial. Following that, she acted in a number of TV series and movies. She appeared in a number of short films, including Just Before I Go, Save Her, and Candid.
Known for her role as Nicole Reese in the sci-fi series, Raising Dion, the actress has also starred in the supernatural drama, Shadowhunters. Apart from that, the 30 years old actress has made guest appearances in several TV series, including Switched at Birth, General Hospital, Rosewood, and Lethal Weapon.
She has also voiced for a basketball video game NBA 2K17 as well as Disney’s Star Darlings. Alisha is currently working on her new movie Palmer with co-star Justin Timberlake.
Personal Life: Relationship Status
While Alisha has managed to keep her love life under the covers, there has been speculation for a possible spark with her Palmer co-star Justin Timberlake. The two were recently spotted holding hands at a bar in New Orleans.
Despite confirming that the"holding hands" were nothing but a result of a “boozy night,” the 38 years old singer felt guilty about it. Alisha’s father reassured the media that there is nothing to worry about, whereas JT’s wife, Jessica Biel, has been laughing it off.
Social Media Activity
Alisha has a pretty active Instagram, as well as a Twitter account. The Shadowhunters star has been posting pictures of herself performing various activities, including boxing.
As seen per her Instagram posts, we can certainly say that she loves to travel. Apart from that, she has also been posting pictures of her Raising Dion co-star Michael B. Jordan whom she considers to be a role model more than a “heartthrob.”
While Alisha’s glamorous career has helped maintain her comfortable lifestyle, her net worth is yet to be calculated as of 2019.
