Showtime's The Chi Jasmine Davis: Actor, Model, Musician, Activist
Critically and audience acclaimed The Chi on Showtime is now streaming its fourth season. The show takes place on Chicago’s south side and in this tough neighborhood, real dangers threaten daily to squelch dreams, and the simplest decisions can have life or death consequences. The Chi is a timely coming-of-age drama series centered on a group of residents who become linked by coincidence but bonded by the need for connection and redemption. One of the standout stars is Jasmine Davis.
Not only an actor, but Jasmine is also a musician, model, and CEO of Saint J’s clothing and lifestyle brand. Jasmine’s private life was put in the spotlight after she came out, during COVID, as trans as her character, Imani, was also revealed to be a trans woman. Coming out during the isolation of COVID and dealing with social media hate, Jasmine slipped into a mental breakdown from which she reemerged stronger than ever.
We sat down with Jasmine for a VERY candid chat about her coming out, growing up in the streets of Chicago, the reality of mental health, the bigotry that remains in minority groups, the reality of inclusivity in the LGBTQ community, the pressures of being a spokesperson for the black and LGBTQ communities, the roles being offered to trans actors, body positivity, her battle with dyslexia, her new music – offering a very real opinion on life, and loving yourself first…hosted by Alexander Rodriguez.
