Chicago native Safia Jalila is known for her vocal range and many theatrical and on-camera performances. Portraying comedic and dramatic characters, she earned a BA from Columbia College, MA from Roosevelt University, trained with Vagabond School of the Arts , and obtained professional coaching with Leah Daniels-Butler. Upcoming projects include: City Blues: An Urban Tale (stageplay), Finding Andrew Watson (documentary), and a MTV Brand Project airing summer ’15. Safia is very excited to be a part of the Oh Baby! cast.
Accepting a part in a friend’s independent film, Cynthia Xerogianes is ‘late’ to the game, but loving every minute of it! A student of Black Box Acting and the Chicago Actors Studio, she recently played Eve in the Ashes and Embers production of Séance and Doris in The October Game Redux. When off stage, she makes men look and feel handsome as a menswear stylist/outfitter for Trumaker Co. She feels Onicia is a fresh-on-the-scene and talented writer with an important voice that expresses truth through sharp wit and humor. Thrilled to be in Oh Baby!, Cynthia is also beyond grateful for her supportive friends and family!
