St. Entebbe Rising

Can one person be a stepping stone in an actor's career? Of course it is possible if we are talking about the role of the chef Sydney Adamo In the surprise series “The Bear”, which brought to stardom not only Ayo Entebere who plays her, but also her co-star Jeremy Allen White.

Until the first episodes of the series aired in 2022, 28-year-old Entebere was just another actress struggling to stand out from the up-and-coming crowd with small roles in series and films. Her favorite activity was visiting the organic grocery store in her neighborhood in Los Angeles to see her celebrity customers who swear by healthy eating. “Now I'm one of those celebrities,” is her new favorite saying.

The only daughter of immigrants (a father from Nigeria and a mother from Barbados), she was born and raised in Boston and, as we learned from observation, became interested in comedy when she was still in high school. From there, she began her career as a comedic actress, and from time to time she would put her hand in scripts for sitcoms, such as “Sunnyside” and “Dickinson,” in order to pursue her screenwriting degree from the University of New Jersey. York University.

Then came The Bear, the blockbuster movie, the awards (see the Golden Globes and Primetime Emmys) and the non-stop red carpet parties, for which Anteberry selects exclusively non-white designer outfits, always with the help of her stylist Sophie Cox. In addition to Season 3 of The Bear, which will begin streaming on Disney+ in June, the fast-rising star has five other projects in the works because, yes, they're in demand right now. In her spare time, she enjoys cooking for herself and her friends, and notes that her love of pots and pans predates her role as the inspirational Sydney chef that made her famous from one bite to the next.

The thing she has to get used to now, of course, is that the press will not only be interested in her work, but also in her personal life. According to recent reports, Entebbe's new partner is Paul Mescal. Or is he just a good friend? Unsolved questions will not make anyone's life better.
