Josie Totah first ventured into the entertainment industry as a child actor and made her official acting debut with the movie series Lil’ Dictator in 2012.
Later on, in 2013, her first recurring role was in the TV series Jessie. Two years later, she was highlighted as the youngest cast in the TV series Glee.
Her career kept on climbing up and landed her a role in the movie Handsome in 2017. Around that same year, she could also be found in the popular movie Spider-Man: Homecoming.
The featured role that brought her most acknowledgment, however, was that of a 15-year-old in the TV series Champions (2018).
The series was written by her co-star, Mindy Kaling. Josie’s flawless acting in the series was generally valued, though the series was brief and had to be terminated.
A year later, she made a buzz among netizens because she came out as a transgender young lady and announced that she would take on more female roles in her future projects.
