Aja Naomi King Talks NAACP Nomination and Crush
Aja Naomi King could not be more excited when it comes to her recent NAACP Image Award nomination and what could be in store for her as an actress. “I’ve been performing ever since I was little but it was a surprise to my parents when I actually wanted to pursue a career in the arts. This kind of validation that I’m doing what I’m supposed to be doing, it means everything to me.” A Los Angeles native, King began her career by appearing in several short films and eventually making appearances on the popular television shows Blue Bloods and Person of Interest. By 2014, King had landed herself a steady role on ABC’s hit drama, How To Get Away With Murder, allowing her to gain more recognition as an actress. “It’s been a little overwhelming but really wonderful to be on the receiving end of so much love,” the actress gushed. “We have the best fans.” As far as romance goes, the actress admits that she has too many celebrity crushes to count but one in particular has always stood out to her. “I think Michael B. Jordan is so beautiful in person,” the actress exclaimed. “I just love him.” And who said “love at first sight” was a thing of the past?
