Blasina Olowe seems to be a seasoned veteran in the world of entertainment though she is still fairly new. Having worked with established directors such as F. Gary Gray and Spike Jordan so early in her budding career, has given her the confidence and edge young actors often need to tackle any role presented to them.
Blasina also plays the piano and is trained in many arts including acting, dancing, and singing, so it is fitting that she easily morphed into the many challenging scenarios that she was asked to act in in Home Confinement. Her natural charm and likability comes across from the first time the camera captures her.
She is currently completing numerous independent projects, while continuing to hone her thespian skills with her acting coach and focusing on her education. With such dedication and focus at this young age Blasina is destined for superstardom in the not-so-distant future.
