Mallori Johnson

Up-and-coming actress Mallori Johnson doesn’t have to wait years after hundreds of auditions to break into Hollywood. Despite being very new to the business, she is already making major waves. She is the star of Kindred, a TV show based on the book of the same name written by Octavia Butler. The show premiered on FX on Hulu in December 2022 to mild critical acclaim.

Despite the show’s moderate success, Mallori’s performance signaled the arrival of a young star. Naturally, this has left many curious about her. We’ve got ten key facts you need to know.

1. She Studied At Juilliard

For Mallori, acting is something she always wanted to do ever since she watched her brother in his high school The Wiz play. Enthralled with the performance, she fell in love with acting right there, setting her on a path to the world-famous Juilliard School. She graduated with a bachelor of fine arts degree in 2021 and was cast in Kindred shortly after.

2. Kindred wasn’t Her First Onscreen Role

While Kindred is the first major role for the actress, it’s not her first onscreen role. Earlier in 2022, she appeared in another streaming series, WeCrashed, as Bea. She made four appearances in the TV show about the rise and fall of WeWork, one of the world’s most valuable startups. After an impressive debut year, Mallori Johnson is expected to appear in her first film in 2023 in The Other Zoey.

3. She Plays The Guitar

Acting might be the thing that is going to make Mallori famous, but it certainly isn’t the only thing she’s good at. According to her resume, Mallori also sings and plays the guitar. That said, there’s no information to suggest that she has plans to pursue music as anything more than a hobby.

4. She Is Very Private

After it was announced that Mallori would be starring in Kindred, lots of people flocked to the internet in hopes of learning more about her. Unfortunately, though, they didn’t find much. That’s because she’s a very low-key person who hasn’t shared any information about her personal life. However, as Mallori’s star shines brighter, one expects that to change.

5. She Loves to Paint

To say that Mallori is a woman of many talents would probably be an understatement. On top of acting and playing the guitar, Mallori Johnson is also a talented painter. She loves being able to express herself through the arts and painting has also become a way for her to deal with life’s stress. In the summer of 2021, she shared a portrait that she painted of her friend, roommate, and fellow actress, Bianca Norwood.

6. She Has A Unique Sense of Style

7. She Enjoys Hanging Out By The Water

When the weather is nice, Mallori loves to get out and go to the beach. There’s something about being out in nature that is very calming.
