How Old Is She? Wiki & Bio, Birthday, Family
Because Troy Leigh-Anne Johnson was a relative newcomer, nobody had penned a Wikipedia profile dedicated to her (March 2020).
Uncharacteristically though, Troy’s biographies online didn’t make mention of her birthday, age and family background.
Based on her apperance — and apperance alone — Troy couldn’t be any older than 20 years in age. Thus, she was probably born around the turn of the century.
Coming to the young actress’ parents, Troy once Instagrammed a photo of her mom. Her dad and assumed siblings were nowhere to be found on the photo-sharing site.
What’s more, Troy reportedly embraced African-American ethnicity. Meanwhile, she owned an American passport and called Long Beach her hometown.
Friends and family call Troy by her nickname “Bambi.” The origin story of the moniker confined to the rising actress’ circle.
Per an “Echo Theater Company” Facebook post, Troy received her formal education at the LA-based and Jeff Alan-Lee-ran acting school “the Young Actor Studio.”
How Tall Is She? Bio, Movies & TV Shows, Net Worth
A loveable person inside out, Troy Leigh-Anne Johnson allegedly owned five feet & eight inches (172 cm) in height. She possessed a slender built with 55kg weight.
Before gaining worldwide recognition through “On My Block,” Troy starred in several plays including the Echo Theater Company’s “The Wolves” and Greenway Court Theater’s “Ripe Frenzy.”
In 2019, Troy landed the titular character on the Echo Theater Company’s stage production of “Poor Clare.” Three years earlier, she made her acting debut by starring in the short film “Ujana.”
By 2020, two movies — namely, “Let’s Scare Julie” and “A Babysitter’s Guide to Monster Hunting” — featuring Troy were already in the post-production stage.
Being an up-and-coming actress, Troy kept her finances at bay. Her net worth, therefore, couldn’t be acquainted.
Getting into her social media presence, Troy joined Twitter in March 2014. Meanwhile, some 4.5k people followed her on Instagram (March 2020).
Troy Leigh-Anne Johnson On “On My Block”
Troy Leigh-Anne Johnson got acquainted with the TV audience through the character Kendra in the smash-hit Netflix show “On My Block.”
On the show, Troy was cast as the love interest to Brett Grey’s character Jamal.
Full of quirky behaviors, Kendra eventually becomes Jamal’s girlfriend. Initially, the characters find it difficult to find the required groove. Speaking to ET Online, Brett explained:
“It’s so funny because [Kendra’s] sort of the opposite of Jamal. She’s super shy and really creepy, and really quiet and weird. So, like, it brings him down. You get a little bit more of who Jamal is as a romantic, but it’s also the most ridiculous relationship ever.”
As it does with any on-screen couple, fans began to wish that Troy and on-reel boyfriend Brett would start dating.
Boyfriend, Dating, Relationship
It may be hard to believe but Troy Leigh-Anne Johnson most likely entered the year 2020 as a single lady. The “On My Block” actress’ Instagram posts showed no sign of her engaging in the dating scene.
Back in 2015 and 2016, Troy was probably in a relationship with a boy named Diego Josef. Upon a close inspection, she and her assumed boyfriend could be seen exchanging flirty messages on IG.
Overtime, Troy and Diego’s romance must’ve fizzled out. By 2020, the latter was dating Mahina Bennett.
