NAOMIE  MELANIE HARRIS

naomie-harrisBritish actress Naomie Harris is the only child of television scriptwriter Lisselle Kayla. She showed an interest in acting from an early age and attended the prestigious Anna Scher Theater School. From here, Harris won roles in various projects, such as Simon and the Witch (1987) and The Tomorrow People (1992). She went on to study social and political sciences at Pembroke College, Cambridge University, an experience Harris did not enjoy.

Naomie.jpgmAfter graduating from University, Harris trained at Bristol Old Vic Theater School. Acting success soon followed and her breakthrough film role came in Danny Boyle’s 28 Days Later… (2002). Other notable projects include Miami Vice (2006) and Small Island (2009) (for which she was named best female actor by the Royal Television Society). Harris also won fans for her role as Tia Dalma in the blockbusting “Pirates of the Caribbean” films and further international attention came her way when she was cast as Field Agent Eve in the twenty third James Bond film, Skyfall (2012).

Her mother is Lisselle Kayla, (scriptwriter) who came to England from Jamaica at the age of five. Her father is from Trinidad. She is the first black actress to play Miss Moneypenny in the James Bond series. Harris’s interpretation of Moneypenny is also significantly expanded from the character’s secretarial roots; in Skyfall (2012) she is introduced as a full-fledged MI6 field agent and an agile sidekick to Bond. She replaced Lupita Nyong’o in the role of Angela Rivera in Southpaw after Nyong’o backed out of the project.

About Karib Nation, Inc.

Hosted annually in June, the Caribbean Style and Culture Runway Showcase is a fusion of fashion, music while showcasing the best of Caribbean talent. First held in June 2009 to commemorate and celebrate National Caribbean American Heritage Month, CSC captures the flair, glamour, elegance, and authenticity of the Caribbean. Furthermore, it creates a platform for budding and prominent designers and models to expand their brand, build their network, and display their creativity and talent to the diaspora. Most importantly, the CSC Showcase seeks to recognize and award Caribbean Designers, Models, Photographers, and Makeup Artists for the significant contributions made to the arts industry in the region. In the past 10 years, the Caribbean Style and Culture Awards have certainly evolved into an all-encompassing cultural extravaganza that sees attendance from Caribbean Diplomats and other Officials of the Diaspora. To date, our proudest moment was to be honored by the presence of the First Lady of Guyana, Mrs. Sandra Granger, who hailed the event as important in the recognition of the work of Caribbean artists in the fashion industry. As we continue in our growth, we aim to ensure that Caribbean artists are continually given a platform to grow and develop their talents.
