Ever heard of Skai Jackson? Yeah, it’s the same guy you know we’re talking about. She’s an American child actress and the Zuri Ross on Disney Channel’s show, Jessie. Her passion for acting began when she was four years old, and she sees acting like something she would do for the rest of her life.
Her contact with the media world dates back to when she was a baby and appeared as a child model in several TV commercials. Her breakthrough came in 2007 when she appeared in the independent film Liberty Kid, but her role as Zuri Ross in the television series Jessie made her famous.
She has starred in many other movies including Rescue Me, The Rebound, Arthur, Ultimate Spider-Man, and The Smurfs, as well as various television series such as Royal Pains, Sesame Street, and Boardwalk Empire. Skai was the speech character of Isa, the iguana from the cartoon Dora The Explorer and Little Fish in Nick Jr’s Bubble Guppies.
This sweetie has also appeared with some big names in Hollywood. In 2013 she appeared together with Dwayne Johnson, Channing Tatum, and Adrianne Palicki as Roadblocks’ daughter in a thriller/action movie G.I. Joe: Revenge. She currently stars in the Disney series Bunk’d alongside Peyton List, Karan Brar, Miranda May, and Nina Lu.
She has a good head on her shoulders at such a young age and plans to become a film director and producer in the future. Skai was nominated at the Image Awards for Outstanding Achievement of a Young Person (series, special, TV movie, or mini-series).
She was bullied because of her brevity and admonishes any child who is bullied to talk to an adult and learn to stand up for herself. Her height is 4′ 11″ which will increase in the future, considering that she is still very young.

She may be very young, but she does not give in to intimidation or her haters, and would always come out stronger than expected so that she is showered with praise from them and falls behind. She stands for the right cause and is brave enough to point out the wrong facts. Skai believes that she had a career before Disney and certainly after, and told Azealia Banks that she tongue-whipped her after a racist and homophobic comment on Twitter. Such a spirited girl. Banks certainly got the wow of her life.
Skai Jackson is in love with fashion and is causing a revolution in the fashion industry. You see her wearing expensive and trendy clothes on her social media platforms, at award ceremonies, or at every event on the red carpet. In the future, she would like to have her own fashion line or work with a big fashion company.
Skai Jackson Bio, Parents
Our charming actress was born on April 8, 2002, in New York City, New York, United States. She is of American nationality and black ethnicity. She received the name Skai Syed Jackson from her parents Jacob Jackson and Kiya Cole, who divorced when she was a child, and since then she has lived with her two sisters Aurora and Nala at her mother’s house.
Her mother was instrumental in her involvement in the world of entertainment. When she was 9 months old, Kiya was told that her baby was cute because Skai really was. She sent the photos of her baby to two modeling agencies, who took the babies and got their approval but had to choose one. And Baby Skai never looked back from then on.
Kiya, who manages her daughter part-time, said she was cool with her career and never hesitated to go into the business. She thought that at least she would earn enough money to go to college. Skai was in New York, but her mother had to move with the family to Los Angeles after she auditioned for and got the role of Jessie in the Disney show when she was 9.
Kiya posts her daughter’s impressions and videos from her childhood on her YouTube channel and monitors Skia’s posts on her social media pages. Skia can safely be called an Instagram star, as she has more than 3 million followers.
She is very modest and loves to spend time with her family and friends when she is not acting. She also likes to sing.
