JOY BRYANT made her onscreen debut in the MTV original production of
"Carmen: A Hip Hopera," opposite BeyoncĂ© Knowles and Mekhi Phifer,
followed by a small role in the Warner Bros.' feature comedy, SHOWTIME,
opposite Eddie Murphy and Robert De Niro. Bryant is currently in production on
Bille Woodruff's HONEY, a music-driven, coming-of-age drama about an
inner-city woman, played by Jessica Alba, who fulfills her dream of becoming a
successful video choreographer until she is confronted with unsuspecting
setbacks. Bryant will portray the title character's best friend.
While enrolled as a full-time student at Yale University,
Bryant was discovered by a modeling scout from Next Models Management. For
several years, Bryant pursued a career as a fashion model in Paris and
subsequently entered an exclusive contract with Tommy Hilfiger. Bryant continues
to model between films as a cover subject for Victoria's Secret and in a
number of prestigious print campaigns.
Bryant is an avid supporter of the Fieldston Enrichment
Program under the umbrella of A Better Chance, an organization that reaches out
to minority talent to enrich their academic opportunities. Bryant was herself an
enrollee in the A Better Chance program and later earned an academic scholarship
to Yale University.
