Taylor Lashae Bio: Early Life, Family and Education
Speaking about her early life, Taylor Lashae was raised by her French and Colombian parents in Houston, in their home in close proximity to the NASA centre. Taylor spent her childhood with her older brother and a younger sister named Faith Silva. Her sister shared Taylor’s passion for modeling and decided to follow in her sister’s footsteps. Not much else is known about her early childhood years, except that she was always a creative person, often using her wild imagination to create her own games and dance moves, and she also enjoyed painting. Although there is no information about her primary and high school education, she later studied acting at the Nina Murano Acting Studio in New York City, studying the Meisner technique of acting.
Taylor has stated in interviews that she always had a thing for modeling. Although she had a couple of modeling gigs when she was very young, it was at the age of 15 that she landed her first official modeling job. She worked part-time for a very popular vintage store, and after some time, she was asked to pose for a few photos to promote various items that were sold in the shop. The photos were posted online, and Taylor posted some of them herself on her Instagram page.
Her natural beauty and her original style were quickly recognized by modeling agents, and it did not take long before she started receiving job offers. In addition, her Instagram posts which featured artistic photos and pictures from fashion shows, helped her gain online fame and garner a solid base of followers. She continued with her modeling work parallel with her education and acting career – her unique style has been compared to French chiq, although she has personaly described it as ‘all over the place’. During the course of her modeling career, she has worked for brands such as P.E. Nation, Calvin Klein, Hansel & Gretel, Nice Martin and many others.
Taylor has stated that she decided to become an actress after seeing HBO’s show “Boardwalk Empire”; she was so impressed with the show that she applied to work as an extra, and soon found herself spending three days a week for several months on the set, and amazed by the entire filming process, the sets, the lights and all the people involved. Soon after that, she realized that she had a passion for acting, and wanted to remain in the film industry, so moved from Houston to New York and enrolled at the Nina Murano acting school. Over the next couple of years she landed roles in dozens of commercials and several music videos, and in addition she has four short films in her resume; her debut came in 2014 when she wrote and acted in “Je t’adore”.
After that, she starred in “K4 ½” (2014), “Total Ape: MORE” and the horror movie “Cassette” both in 2017. In order to further pursue her acting career, Taylor has moved to Los Angeles recently and stated that this change has had a big impact on her career. Her personal wishes regarding her future acting work include landing a role in either a feature film or a television series produced by HBO or Showtime, as well as working on more commercials and music videos. Her official acting resume can be found on the Backstage website.
Regarding her personal life, Taylor Lashae is dating photographer Zachary Chick at the moment.
