Skye Townsend hit fame when she went viral on VINE imitating Beyonce. While she is the daughter of super director Robert Townsend, she never looked to her father for a handout. She wanted to make it her way and through her own hard work. With close to 600 auditions under her belt and a few roles landed, she was looking for her big break. However, the area of “almost” was where she resided for years.
Most recently, Skye was booked as a regular on HBO’s A Back Lady Sketch Show created by Issa Rae. While always having a knack for impersonations, this was her time to shine.
Check out her interview below and get to know the woman behind the characters.
