The bear star, Ayo Edebiri is cleaning up all of Hollywood’s biggest awards this year.
After winning best actress at the Critics Choice Awards and Golden Globe Awards, she won Outstanding Supporting Actress in a comedy series at the Emmy Awards.
Dressed in a custom Louis Vuitton, leather dress with a strapless neckline and a full skirt, she thanked her parents who were in attendance at the ceremony.
Going to head to head with other a list actors, Edebiri was the star of the season, as she carted away awards in different categories.
In a profile for The Times UK, Edebiri offered insights into her life and career. She described what it was like growing up in a religious home, her education and the early stages of her career.
Like many people with immigrant parents in America, she was raised in a strict and religious home. Her mother attended a Pentecostal church. She told the outlet that it was in her church that she was exposed to art, music, public speaking, and reading.
She attended New York University, where she studied Dramatic Writing. Her initial major was Teaching before she made the switch to a more passion-driven course. It was while in school that she met her best friend and longtime collaborator, Rachel Sennott.
Edebiri began her career in the New York stand-up comedy circuit, where she quickly made her mark and has continued to rise up the ladder of success.
