Natasha Rothwell is a screenwriter and actress, who is known for appearing as Kelli on HBO’s Insecure. She also served as a story editor for the series. As per her wiki, she was born in 1980 in New Jersey. The actress blows out her birthday candles every 18 October.
Natasha was born in a Philadelphian family, and her parents had serious jobs. Her father worked in the Air Force while her mother served in comprehensive cancer and hematology. Since her parents were involved in jobs that saved lives, Natasha gathered all her courage to tell her parents that she wanted to build a career in acting.
Before that, she was maintaining her educational background at Ithaca College with a major in Journalism. The actress eventually transferred to the University of Maryland with a full scholarship and graduated with a theatre degree.
Natasha went through a drastic weight loss between the first and second season of Insecure. Even if she lost some weight, she made sure to let people know that she embraced herself despite her weight.
In an interview about her take on plus-size roles, she said,
I take pride in being plus-size. I’m a plus-size, fat-loving, body positive feminist, and I look for roles that celebrate that. And I try to write to that when I have the opportunity to do so. It’s not necessarily writing a storyline that’s like, ‘Let’s celebrate and focus on this person’s size.’ It’s telling any story and the person driving that story happens to be plus-size.
Her fans were surprised by the weight loss she took over. Many took to Twitter to show their appreciation for her efforts; there were also people, who expressed their opinions on how she looked better before the weight loss.
