Last week Lifetime stirred a bit of criticism for their decision to cast recording artist and Disney Channel star, Zendaya, as lead in the forthcoming Aaliyah biopic. And although our audience had several suggestions of actresses who may be a better fit for the role portraying the late singer, one name that wasn't included was Teyana Taylor's.
Over the weekend a few clips surfaced on Dancer-Choreographer, TyronBee's Instagram showing the 23-year-old Harlem native, in what appears to be her auditioninh for the coveted role.
According to TyronBee, the clips are allegedly from Taylor’s “audition”;
“I know Teyana is gonna be mad at me for posting her audition clips but I honestly feel no one deserves this role more then her. She embraces Aaliyah dancing, acting and singing. (Which I'll be posting all 3 parts) but unfortunately @teyanataylor heard that Aaliyah's family isn't involved & she no longer wanted to be apart of the film. Here's part 1 The dancing.”
