Navia Robinson – Age, Parents & TV Shows

Navia Robinson is an American actress popular across the world for her recurring appearances with Raven Symone in the Disney Channel television series Raven’s Home. Even though she has not been in the acting industry for a long while, the talented actress has already positioned herself to be considered among the next big stars in Hollywood. From the time she came on the scene in 2014, appearing in the TV series Being Mary Jane, Navia, who is obviously destined for the spotlight, has remained active. Learn more about her below.

Navia Robinson’s Age & Bio

The confident and self-driven bundle of multiple talents was born in Marietta, Georgia, on the 4th of May 2005. Despite having her eyes set on conquering the movie industry, her education has not been negatively affected in any way and the fact that she is an honour student at Johnson Ferry Christian Academy proves this.

From a very young age, Navia Robinson knew what her path in life was and although her ability to do what she does is innate, she still went on to perfect it by getting trained at different acting schools and taking part in workshops in Atlanta, Georgia and Los Angeles, California. The exceptional Navia is represented in the entertainment industry by J Pervis Talent Agency, Atlanta, and CESD Talent Agency in Los Angeles and New York.

The prodigy has been showcasing her amazing skills since she was younger and this has led to the doors of many outstanding opportunities opening up to her. She took part in a national talent competition, for the first time, in the summer of 2011 at the Actors, Models, and Talent for Christ (AMTC) “Shine” event that took place in Orlando, Florida. Unsurprisingly, she emerged among the top-ten finalist in four categories, including acting, singing troupe, solo singing, and fashion runway modelling. Among the other children that participated in the runway modelling show, Navia Robinson came out on top, receiving the award of Overall Top Child Model. Consequently, she was signed by Generation Model Management of New York.

Apart from acting in television series, Navia Robinson has also acted in national commercials for companies such as Moe’s Southwest Grill, Smithfield Foods Inc., and Dr. Charles Stanley’s In Touch Ministries. She has also taken part in a promotional web campaign for the Boosterthon Fun Run Organization and walked the runway for Jason Christopher Peters, an upcoming fashion designer.

In the summer of 2015, Navia was sent an invitation by Disney executives to participate in their intensive boot camp which held in Los Angeles, California, over a period of two weeks. Prior to the boot camp, Miss Robinson finished regional and national commercials with AT&T, Golden Corral Restaurants, and Synovus Bank.

TV Shows

Navia Robinson began her acting career, playing the character of D’Asia, the young niece to Mary Jane (played by Gabrielle Union), in the 90-minute-pilot and subsequent series of Being Mary Jane, which aired on BET Network until April 23, 2019. She appeared in ten episodes of the show between 2014 and 2015. Towards the beginning of 2016, Navia’s talent drew the attention of Nicki Minaj, who personally chose her to appear as a younger version of herself in NICKI, the singer’s documentary pilot about her life growing up in Queens, shot for the Freeform Network.

In 2017, Navia appeared as a character named Janie in The CW supernatural teen drama television series The Vampire Diaries. Also in the same year, the young star played the role of Rosie in the Netflix Original coming-of-age series Free Rein (formerly “Horse Mystery Project”). Her career breakthrough came when she was cast in a recurring role as Nia Baxter-Carter in the Disney Channel’s family sitcom TV series, Raven’s Home that premiered on July 21, 2017. As a result of her amazing portrayal of the characters she played in both Free Rein and Raven’s Home, the young actress was nominated for an NAACP Image Award.

Speaking in an interview with Digital Journal about her role in the Raven’s Home, Navia Robinson revealed that Meryl Streep, Viola Davis, and Winona Ryder are her major acting influences, as a result of their diversity.

Parents and Siblings

Navia Robinson is the daughter of Jeffery Robinson and Lisa Butler Robinson. She grew up alongside her two older brothers whose names are not known for now. The young actress shares a very tight bond with her family and she has said that they have been very supportive of her career since she started.

In February 2016, she posted a photo of herself and one of her brothers with a caption that spoke of how much she loved her family. In 2018, the young actress also wrote a piece to her mom on Mother’s day speaking of how she wants to grow up to be like her. She also did the same for her dad with a picture she took with him when she was a child.
