We had the good fortune of connecting with Bria Wade and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Bria, what led you to pursuing a creative path professionally?
Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
I’m so thankful for the opportunities I’ve received. My plan is to continue having fun and working hard! I recently shot my very first beauty commercial, and I really enjoyed that experience. I also shot a webseries in my hometown of DC during the pandemic. It was a huge highlight for me to return home for work! I also got to spend time with my family which was so nice. With the support of my agents I’ve been auditioning for projects I’m excited about. Also, I’ve been working on my own content! Lookout for some exciting videos on my Instagram @Bria_Wade and Tik Tok @iambriawade.
If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
I’d definitely take them to “Another Broken Egg” for brunch in Burbank. It’s so close to my place, and their brunch is so good! We’d also head to “Lou The French On The Block”, a Black owned business here in Burbank. Lou has the best almond croissant I’ve ever tasted! Also, “The Ugly Mug Coffee House” in Burbank is my go to spot for coffee before a trip to the beach. I love their hazelnut latte. I also love Descanso Gardens for some nice quiet outside time, and maybe a trip to San Diego. 🙂 Of course, if we’re in the mood to go out there’s a whole different list for that. LOL
Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
God, for sure! He’s my #1 supporter and friend. Definitely my parents, Vernon and Angela Wade for their constant love and support. My work ethic is a true reflection of my parents and their guidance. I’d also like to shout out my siblings for keeping me focused and motivated! Last but not least, my friends and my boyfriend for their constant support, always reminding me to stay true to myself.
