Karimah Westbrook is featured in the October digital issue of Splash Magazine!

We chat with “Suburbicon” co-star Karimah Westbrook about the film, her career, and fearless resistance.

by Splash Staff for Splash Magazine

Actress Karimah Westbrook, co-star of the highly anticipated, and rather controversial, upcoming Coen Brothers/George Clooney drama “Suburbicon“, talks about her career, whom she most admires in Hollywood, how she prepared to portray civil rights icon Daisy Myers, and whether or not racism can be eradicated in the United States.

SPLASH STAFF – Tell us a little bit about yourself. Where are you from? What’s your background?

KARIMAH WESTBROOK – My name is Karimah Westbrook, I’m originally from Chicago but I currently reside in Los Angeles, California. I’m the youngest of two, being myself and my sister, and I have always been extremely driven. I’m an actress, who also writes and produces, and I got my first big industry break by crashing an audition for “Save the Last Dance”, starring Julia Stiles and Kerry Washington. Since then I have proceeded to appear in a number of feature films, working with the likes of Johnny Depp, Alfre Woodard, Giovanni Ribisi and Mario Van Peebles, and I’ve also worked on 25 plus TV shows including “Shameless”, “Girlfriends”, “The Fosters”, “Mad Men”, “Masters of Sex”, etc.

SS – When did you decide that you wanted to peruse acting as a career?

KW – I participated in all of my school plays as a kid, but I didn’t consider pursuing a career in acting until I was seventeen years old, post military school.

SS – As an actress, with the incredible amount of competition for great rolls, do you deem it important to create your own projects and opportunities in Hollywood?

KW – There is an incredible amount of competition as an actor but I live by the motto “What’s meant for me will be”. Creating your own opportunities is absolutely necessary if you want to facilitate your own path and work more frequently in this industry. It’s also the biggest marketing tool, a calling card if you will, that an actor can create for themselves and their careers. Don’t wait, create. The doors will open.

Karimah Westbrook is a name that you might not readily recognize but a face you may definitely recognize from several co-starring and bit parts in major projects over the years like Moesha starring Brandy and Baadasssss starring Mario Van Pebbles to name a few.

Interviewed by Keith Trent for TNE Magazine

Karimah is a Chicago born actress who was drawn to the arts very early. I found out just like myself as early as a young child first demonstrated her prowess for the arts by putting on little performances for family members as a kid. She later attended the Academy of Dramatic Arts-Westin Chicago to study and hone many of the tools that would help shape her acting process and lay the groundwork to developing her dynamically captivating style as a teenager. However her burning desire to get her feet wet and immerse herself in the actual industry as a working actress compelled her to leave her seemingly restrictive conservatory early to pursue her acting career.
