Yaya DaCosta began her professional acting career starring in Liz Friedlander's "Take the Lead," opposite Antonio Banderas, for which she received a Teen Choice Award nomination.

This was followed by a lead role in John Sayles' "Honeydripper," in which she played opposite Danny Glover and Charles S. Dutton. She then reunited with Dutton in the telefilm "Racing for Time," which he also directed.

Ms. DaCosta was most recently seen on-screen in Oren Moverman's acclaimed "The Messenger," with Academy Award nominee Woody Harrelson and Ben Foster.
