Isaiah has been in a couple of movies


Isaiah has always been interested in entertaining people and acting, which is unsurprising given he was born to a family of entertainers. Everywhere he went, he loved to entertain people but was unsure how far it would get him. He was always interested in acting but didn’t know where the interest would lead either. Isaiah finally took his interest seriously and started acting with his debut in the student film called No Way Out. He loved the experience on that set and decided to act more. Since then, he has worked hard and trained to learn techniques that worked best for him. Isaiah trained with Carl Ford, a writer, producer, and acting coach, among many other great acting coaches.

Isaiah has worked on multiple short films, movies, TV pilots, and PSA’s (Public Service Announcements). He has also been found working behind the scene with the camera as well as being part of the sound crew and a production assistant. The experience and training ensured he was able to sign with an agency. Currently, Isaiah plays Leon Simmons on FX’s Snowfall. The series created by John Singleton, Eric Amadio and Dave Andron first broadcast on FX in July 2017. It is set in Los Angeles, where Isaiah currently lives. Besides Isaiah, other casts on the series include Damson Idris, Carter Hudson, Michael Hyatt, and Emily Rios. Isaiah also acted as an Amity Citizen in the Divergent Series’ second chapter.
