Congratulations to Kimmarie Johnson who won our
July Actress of the Month competition with thousands of votes.

Pennsylvania and did well enough to enter other
markets and booked national jobs. A former beauty
queen and top finalist at the Miss USA pageant,
representing the state of Pennsylvania, Johnson took
acting classes in Pittsburgh and upon her arrival in
Los Angeles, she immediately started seeking more
classes to further her skills.
While learning from Janet Alhanti at Margie Habor
studios, and taking part in various other classes, she

music videos/industrials. This, coupled with the
actress/waitress route, ensured Johnson would be

Pla where she plays detective Baptise. She also had
appearance in the film Diary of a Tired Black
Man, written and directed by Tim Alexander. She
has also executive produced a film called The Last

Johnson is currently preparing for a role in a film
tentatively titled Kimchi Warrior, where she
will play a cop who really knows how to fight. She's
toughing it out, working hard and looking forward
to seeing the fruits of her labor.
Johnson owes her drive and success to her life
philosophy: It is better to bend with the wind than
"I am thankful to IFA for allowing me the opportunity
to be actor of the month and allowing me to share
my voice and my experience. I'm looking forward
more action in the near future," says Johnson.
With Johnsons rocketing career and quality track
record, there is no doubt that shell be seeing a lot
