Acting Journey

Emayatzy began her career performing her first role at the Town Street Theatre in the production of “Psychology of Chromosome X” and loved every bit of it; this whole experience made her fall in love with acting all over again. She did a few more plays like “Platanos & Collard Greens,” “The Bachelorette Party,” she went around the world doing a tour of this play, and lastly, “Finding the Boom Bap,” where she played a lead role.

In the year 2000, she stepped into the mainstream media with a small role in a short film, “Mortality,” she began to be a part of films like “Pretty Lady,” “A Taste of Us,” “Beauty Shop,” “My American Nurse,” and “Cordially Invited,” she also played actor J.D.Williams’s girlfriend in a music video for Tupac Shakur, it was named “Ghetto Gospel” and directed by Nzinga Stewart, she was seen in another video called the “Vampz,” as Eve.

Emayatzy went on to do a few roles here and there, most of which were supporting roles, but she still managed to shine and give her best in T.V. series and films like “The Young and the Restless,” “Katrina,” “Natural Beauty,” “Demons,” “Romantically Challenged.” Her breakthrough took place in 2012 when she was offered the role of Ruby in the drama “Middle of Nowhere,” she had initially auditioned for the position of Ruby’s sister but was asked to read for the leading role instead.

The director Ava DuVernay did not regard her decision, as Corinealdi rose to the occasion and delivered an outstanding performance; thanks to this big break, the actress was then seen in some high-profile projects like “Criminal Minds,” “In the Morning,” “Addicted,” “The Invitation.”

In 2015, she managed to replace Zoe Saldana in the film “Miles Ahead,” which was yet another breathtaking performance for her side; she was seen in several prominent T.V. series with significant roles to play, including “Roots,” “Hand Of God,” “The Red Line,” “Ballers,” and her most recent, Hulu series, “Reasonable Doubt,” interestingly each show title and each episode title are inspired by Jay-Z’s debut album of the same name, the music is however composed by Adrian Younge and Ali Shaheed Muhammad.
