Eritrean American actress, model and producer!
Ella Thomas grew up overseas. Her mother was Eritrean and her father was an U.S. Air Force officer who was stationed in the country. Her parents moved to Germany while she was still an infant yet continued to return frequently to Asmara to visit her mother's family, until a civil war ravaging the country made it unsafe for them to travel. In Germany, the family lived off base in a small town called Kindsbach, where Ella was enrolled in a German school, learning to speak both German and French fluently while her mother continued to teach her Tigrinya and English at home. Kindsbach was where she first discovered her love for performing, performing in local theater and school productions.

It wasn't until she was a teenager that her mother made a decision to move the family to the United States. By this time her younger sister Angela had been born and her parents had divorced. They settled in Connecticut, where Ella attended both high school and college, earning a BA in Biology. Three years later she moved back to New York, where she appeared in numerous print ads for such companies as the Gap, L'Oreal and Tiffany & Co., and in editorials for magazines such as Elle, Glamour and Vogue. During this time she continued to travel back and forth to Los Angeles for print as well as commercial work. It was on one of these trips that she booked her first role in the Artist View Film Disturbance (2005). During this same trip she met Brenda Hampton, creator of 7th Heaven(1996), at a charity event. It so happened that Hampton was looking for an East African actress for an upcoming episode of the series. _________________________________________________________________________________________________

  • An American Marriage by @tayari is a relationship story of two black couples. It is the winner of @womensprize for the year 2018 and is published by @algonquinbooks

The novel focuses on a middle-class married African American couple Roy and Celestial. Both are well educated and are employed, Roy a sales rep and Celestial a baby doll maker.

How their life changes due to wrong accusation of Roy being arrested on rape charges forms this heart-felt drama of a novel. He has been sent to prison for 12 years, but get released within 5 years. But what happens when he comes back to his wife after 5 years is put forward by the author with great maturity and adeptness.

Celestial has moved on with her life and is in relationship with her childhood friend Andre during Roy's prison sentence duration. Andre is also Roy's friend during college days. The dilemma, struggle and love between these three people are told in a convincing and practical manner that is so true to American culture.

The multiple view point of narration is a good ploy to convey each of the character's story in a solid way.
