Star’s Ryan Destiny is set to play a recurring role on the next season of Freeform’s comedy series ‘grown-ish’. Production has already begun.
Destiny will play Jillian, a transfer student from an HBCU who has come to study filmmaking at Cal U. Smart, worldly, and cultured, Jillian can talk art and music with Luca (Luka Sabbat), politics and activism with Aaron (Trevor Jackson), and also fits right in with Zoey (Yara Shahidi) and her eclectic crew of girls.
grown-ish follows Zoey (Yara Shahidi) and her friends as they navigate through the ups and downs of higher education. As they moved into their sophomore year, they quickly realized they aren’t as grown as they think.
Destiny, made her television debut on AMC’s crime drama Low Winter Sun, most recently starred as one of the leads in Fox’s musical drama series Star opposite Queen Latifah, Jude Demorest, Brittany O’Grady and Quincy Brown. Destiny released her first single “The Same” last September, and she is currently working on a solo EP, titled On One’s Own.
grown-ish Season 2 airs Wednesdays at 8 PM on Freeform
