Tyra Banks recently sat down for a tete-a-tete and deliberated on the part played by Yaya DaCosta in the biopic on Whitney Houston.
Preparations for the Whitney Houston biopic are underway and it seems there is much fuss surrounding the lead characters and the shooting of the scenes. The main woman playing the troubled Whitney, Yaya DaCosta was happy to get a whole lot of buck ups from Whitney’s huge fan base.
Tyra Banks, who is a famous supermodel, has also shown her appreciation and wholehearted support for Yaya. Yaya is 31 years of age and is an accomplished actress.
She has also gotten a lot of encouragement from Tyra on America’s Next Top Model. In a segment on Bravo's “Watch What Happens Live,” Tyra expressed extreme optimism as regards her colleague Yaya’s future.
Tyra spoke of how this was one hot actress who was doing some serious killing on her own. She had been in academy award-winning movies and played a part with Oprah in “The Butler”.
And now with this role as the tortured musical genius, Whitney Houston, she had really made the mare go.
Tyra Banks said that this was absolutely crazy and unbelievable and she could not thank her stars enough for her friend Yaya to have been selected to play the coveted role. Tyra’s happiness knows no bounds. She just wants Yaya DaCosta to succeed and make it big in life.
In the capacity of a mentor for Yaya during America’s Next Top Model, Tyra groomed her very well and now she expects the best from her friend. We must keep in mind that Tyra is not just like any other model on the planet. She is a media personality and has her own talk show.
When she was questioned as to whether she would like to return to her Victoria’s Secret roots, she replied in the negative and said that she had to concentrate on hosting her talk show instead. It was more important and was the real passion of her life at present.
