Many people know Karlie Redd from the hot reality show, Love & Hip Hop Atlanta. She’s known for stirring up drama and for being a lil’ messy at times. However, many people would be surprised to know that Karlie Redd is known for being an actress as well. She once reportedly played in a move alongside legendary, Oscar award winning actress, Halle Berry.

Acting Debut:

Karlie Redd, a native of New York City, was born Keisha Lewis. She grew up in Trinidad and returned to New York to pursue her acting career. She attended The Harlem School of the Arts and Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater. While acting is her first love, as a reality star, she shared with VH1 the difficulties that she faces trying to find movie roles. Ms. Redd is often challenged because people fail to see Karlie Lewis, the actress:

“They don’t respect — I know this is in the industry — they don’t respect reality stars. People tell me that. But that’s okay because when I audition for these roles and my acting comes out clear, then they can see that. I’m gonna still keep showing them that I can do it. Chris Rock gave me an opportunity. So I auditioned for a role – it’s his movie; it’s called [Top Five] with Kevin Hart, Gabrielle Union, David Spade, Rosario Dawson. I can go on. But when I auditioned for the movie and he didn’t know I was on Love & Hip Hop [Atlanta] until I got on set. My audition was that good. I got on set and that’s when they found out I was — they was like, ‘Oh my god, you’re Karlie Redd!’ I auditioned for the movie as Karlie Lewis.

Karlie’s Movie Appearance With Halle Berry?

Now before we get started, we wanna say that Karlie’s role in the Halle Berry film wasn’t major by any means, but hey, at least she can say that she shared movie screen time with the legend. You see, before viewers were introduced to ‘Karlie Redd the reality star,’ she was apparently cast as an extra on the movie B.A.P.S. From the video (below), you can clearly see that she was very young and her acting career was just getting started. Not only was she in B.A. P.S. and Top Five, but she also starred in the movie, Black Spring Break 2: The Sequel.(Also scroll down to check out her beautiful daughter)…
