American actress Racquel Bailey has finally fulfilled her lifelong dream to star in a Tyler Perry project.
The actress got a lot of attention, including from Perry, earlier this year when she took out a billboard announcing her as the his “next leading lady”.
Now, reports have it that Bailey has landed a role in Perry’s new TV project, “Sistas”, in which she will appear as a police officer who had a relationship with one of the show’s leads.
Back in June, 49-year-old Perry, shared a photo of the billboard on Instagram, but advised people to save their money and audition instead, to stand a chance to star in any of his projects.
Perry pointed out that this “is the third time that someone has done this,” telling actors, “This is not the way to get my attention if you’re looking for a role in one of my shows.”
“Again, the best way to work for me is to AUDITION and it’s FREE! We post breakdowns all the time for actors. JUST COME AND AUDITION,” he wrote.
Bailey is expected to appear in the first season finale, and possibly in Season 2.
