Amiyah Scott As A Boy

Pictures of Amiyah Scott as a boy are provided in this article.  Amiyah plays Cotton on the Star TV show on Fox.  She is Carlotta Brown’s daughter/son.  Carlotta is played by Queen Latifah.  In episode 1, Cotton calls Star (Jude Demorest) out for showing up at her mother’s beauty salon with 21 questions.

Star then shows Cotton letters that Carlotta wrote her.  We then see Queen Latifah singing in church.  The series moves fast.  Similar to Empire, every scene is action packed.  The first episode was full of shocking moments.

It’s great to see Amiyah on a series that respects her as an actress.  Earlier this year, she had a falling out with the staff of The Real Housewives of Atlanta.  The show’s writers tried to make her exploit herself.  We’re sure she won’t have any problems working with Lee Daniels, a person who can understand her struggles.

Welp 🤗 seeing as that was the 1st (and probably last) glimpse of me on #RHOA tonight and I haven’t said anything about it (though the hype was craaazzzzzyyy) lmao. Let me say, I enjoyed ALL the ladies & I had a great time filming multiple scenes with them! Unfortunately due to contractual complications + the magic of editing, you won’t be seeing as much of me as expected. *whispers* (I don’t work for free. Lol. 😊) But everything happens for a reason & it was still an awesome experience! I’m in my 20’s and when this opportunity was BROUGHT to me, It was no guarantees & I was cool with that, but I wasn’t going to exploit myself or act out of character for it… I honestly saw a chance to help change the perspective of MY community, but I wanted to maintain my dignity. Housewife and Transgender aren’t words that are usually associated… Funny, because anyone who knows me knows that being a housewife is a dream of mine, not on reality tv, but in real life. 👰🏽 But contrary to popular belief, I personally know transgender housewives, models, doctors, lawyers and many other successful unique individuals, along with so many others who are fighting to break the negative stigma associated with the trans community. Not to mention, a lot of our opportunities are limited due to discrimination and that’s why most are forced into compromising occupations. But my point in this is to say, me filming with the #RealHousewivesOfAtlanta was not for attention, but to assist in breaking a stereotype. Trans women are not only sex objects or prostitutes. We are strong, educated & human just like everyone else. AND WE ARE HERE AND WE DEMAND RESPECT. And whatever I have to do to assist in that I will and won’t regret it. Now let me call my bf and schedule a hair appointment. 😂🙃😉

You have to love Lee Daniels for giving new talent an opportunity to shine.  Joseline Hernandez also appeared on the first episode of Star.  What other director in Hollywood would give Amiyah Scott and Joseline Hernandez a chance to appear in a series on Fox?

Don’t miss the next episode of Star!
