    First time watching her....she appears uncomfortable. Giggles and nervousness is interesting. You"asleep"???. She has a high pitched squeaky voice. Can't wait to hear her 10 years later. Linked with mbj. Must watch.

    Wishing KiKi Layne a successful career in film, there just are not enough good roles black actresses in Hollywood especially young dark skinned ones like there are for Jennifer Lawrence's and Scarlett Johansson's. There only seem to be great black roles that fit the older actresses such as Octavia Spencer and Viola Davis.

      Uh yeah there are. The problem is that not enough black writers are given the projects to write on or the opportunity to share their stories to a wider audience.
