Layla Keating in “All American”

 

In The CW’s drama “All American,” Greta Onieogou stars as Layla Keating, a music producer who’s trying to create her own empire despite the obstacles standing in her way. She’s focused on taking her star musician, Patience (Chelsea Tavares), to the next level while also filling her roster with up-and-coming talent. When she’s not being a bad ass music producer, Layla is exploring the possibility of a new relationship with an old friend.

 

Onieogou’s interest in acting began at an early age and was cultivated further when she was accepted into the prestigious Claude Watson Arts School at age nine. Throughout her nearly 10 years in the arts intensive program, Onieogou participated in a number of stage productions including “Romeo & Juliet,” Cole Porter’s “Anything Goes” and an original stage adaptation of “Annie Hall.”

 

Onieogou’s first major film role came at the age of 12 in “Fever Pitch.” She has guest starred in television’s “Frankie Drake” and “Ransom.” She has appeared in the critically acclaimed film “Miss Sloane” directed by John Madden and starred in the film “Undercover Grandpa” alongside James Caan. Subsequent credits in film and television include five seasons with “Heartland,” Shaftesbury Films’ “Overruled,” David Bezmozgis’ “Victoria Day” and “Heroes Reborn: Dark Matters.”
