Former teen model Pepi Soruga enjoyed a string of supporting roles in such diverse and critically praised television series as "The Fosters" (ABC Family/Freeform, 2013- ) and "Ash vs. Evil Dead" (Starz, 2015- ) before moving into series regular work on the Hollywood drama series "Famous in Love" (Freeform, 2017- ). Born to African and Scottish parents in Lagos, Nigeria on September 8, 1993, Sonuga relocated with her family to Los Angeles when she was 11 years of age. There, she competed on the pageant circuit, and after capturing the title of Miss Teen Los Angeles at the age fifteen, began modeling for fashion brands like Hot Topic and Skechers. During this period, Sonuga also made her screen debut in a short film, "Weigh Money" (2009), but did not seriously considering a career in acting until she attended Culver City High School. There, she studied theater, improvisation and script writing, which proved instrumental in her switch from modeling to performance. She made her feature film debut opposite Cuba Gooding, Jr. in the independent docu-drama "Life of a King" (2013), and soon settled into regular work as a recurring actor in television projects like "General Hospital" (ABC, 1963- ) and "Mortal Kombat X: Generations" (syndicated, 2015- ). In 2016, she showed considerable versatility in playing very different characters in two separate series: Sonuga co-starred on "The Fosters" as a popular high school student whose lie about an intimate encounter with a school principal nearly costs both women their reputations, and on the satiric "Ash vs. Evil Dead" as a mischievous teenager caught up in the demonic possession and extreme violence that followed in the wake of the series' hapless hero, Ash (Bruce Campbell). She then returned to Freeform as a series regular on the drama "Famous in Love," (2017- ), starring Bella Thorne as an aspiring actress thrust into the chaos of stardom when she is tapped as the lead in a major motion picture. Sonuga played a reclusive pop star who complicated matters for Thorne's character through romantic involvement with her male co-stars (Carter Jenkins and Keith Powers).
