Navia Robinson’s Bio & Age
This confident and self-directed bundle of several talents was born on May 4, 2005, in Marietta, Georgia. Although she had her sights set on conquering the film industry, her education was not negatively affected in any way, and the fact that she is an honorary student of the Johnson Ferry Christian Academy proves this.
Navia Robinson knew from an early age which path she would take in her life, and although her ability to do what she does is innate, she has perfected it by training at various acting schools and attending workshops in Atlanta, Georgia, and Los Angeles, California. The extraordinary Navia is represented in the entertainment industry by the J Pervis Talent Agency, Atlanta, and the CESD Talent Agency in Los Angeles and New York.
The child prodigy has demonstrated her amazing abilities at a young age, which has opened the doors to many outstanding opportunities for her. In the summer of 2011, she participated for the first time in a national talent competition, at the Actors, Models, and Talent for Christ (AMTC) “Shine” event, held in Orlando, Florida. Not surprisingly, she was among the top ten finalists in four categories, including acting, singing group, solo singing, and models for the catwalk. Among the other children who participated in the catwalk modeling show, Navia Robinson was honored with the “Overall Top Child Model” award. Consequently, she was signed by Generation Model Management from New York.
In addition to her role in television series, Navia Robinson has also appeared in national commercials for companies such as Moe’s Southwest Grill, Smithfield Foods Inc. and Dr. Charles Stanley’s In Touch Ministries. She has also participated in a web advertising campaign for the Boosterthon Fun Run organization and has walked the catwalk for Jason Christopher Peters, an aspiring fashion designer.
In the summer of 2015, Navia received an invitation from Disney executives to participate in her two-week intensive boot camp in Los Angeles, California. Prior to the boot camp, Miss Robinson finished regional and national commercials with AT&T, Golden Corral Restaurants and Synovus Bank.
Navia Robinson began her acting career with the role of D’Asia, the young niece of Mary Jane (played by Gabrielle Union), in the 90-minute pilot and the subsequent series Being Mary Jane, which was broadcast on BET Network until April 23, 2019. Between 2014 and 2015 she appeared in ten episodes of the series. In early 2016, Navia’s talent attracted the attention of Nicki Minaj, who personally introduced her as the younger version of herself in NICKI, the singer’s documentary pilot about her life in Queens, which was shot for the Freeform Network.
In 2017, Navia appeared as a character named Janie in the supernatural teen drama television series The CW The Vampire Diaries. Also in that same year, the young star played the role of Rosie in the Netflix original series Free Rein (formerly “Horse Mystery Project”). Her career breakthrough came when she was cast in a recurring role as Nia Baxter-Carter on Disney Channel’s family sitcom television series Raven’s Home, which premiered on July 21, 2017. The young actress was nominated for an NAACP Image Award for her amazing portrayal of the characters she played in both Free Rein and Raven’s Home.
