EVA MARCILLE (A.K.A. EVA PIGFORD, EVA THE DIVA) & JAMIA NASH TO JOIN CAST OF THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS.


America's Next Top Model winner Eva Marcille and singer/actress Jamia Simone Nash (August Rush) join the cast of The Young & the Restless on Wednesday, June 25. Marcille plays Tyra Hamilton, Devon's aunt who is a single mother to daughter Ana, played by Nash. Devon is reunited with them at Lily's 21st birthday party. It's about time Y&R added more color to their cast. I'm so tired of seeing pale-ass Lily, I don't know what to do. Anyhoo, Marcille has guest-starred on several television series such as Kevin Hill, one episode of Smallville, one episode of Everybody Hates Chris, and one episode of The Game as herself. Most recently, Marcille has also appeared on TBS' House Of Payne, a series created by playwright Tyler Perry.

At age 11, Nash has already shared the stage with major artists, including Alicia Keys and Diana Ross. She has acted in episodes of 7th Heaven, Romeo!, My Wife and Kids, and appeared as herself on Half & Half and Big Time. She also played a ten-year-old Fantasia Barrino in the 2006 Lifetime Original Movie Life Is Not a Fairytale: The Fantasia Barrino Story, a biopic about the 2004 American Idol winner. And she provides the singing voice for the character Uniqua on The Backyardigans.

Nash made her feature debut in August Rush and became the youngest African American to ever sing on an Oscar telecast when she performed that film's nominated song this year.

*****WHAT HAPPENED TO THE 'PIGFORD' PART OF HER NAME???

THAT'S ALL I KNEW HER BY. DID SHE GET MARRIED OR SOMETHING?

BUT ABOUT THIS TOP MODEL STUFF, WHAT EVER HAPPENS TO THE WINNERS OF THE ANTM SHOW ANYWAY?

THE ONLY PICS I SEE THEM IN LATELY OR ON BOOTLEG RED CARPETS. WHAT HAPPENED TO THAT '$100,000 MODELING CONTRACT AND PHOTOSHOOT SPREAD IN A MAGAZINE?*****

She is going by her middle name. Its a little too late for that I think but she didn't get married. Its CG decision if they want to keep the winners or not. The only one the wanted to keep was Dani. They offered her another contract. I only see the winners doing premiers and stuff as well or bootleg magazines or test shoots for other designers. Yaya plays on All My Children now. But she's done about 3 box office movies and 3 other made for tv movies. The Top Model girls aren't really Top Model. They are just going by the title.
