Reign Edwards is a famed American musician, songwriter and actress, credited particularly for her role as Nicole in CBS’s “The Bold and Beautiful” soap opera.
Age, Early Life, Education Background
Reign Edwards was born under the Sagittarius zodiac sign on 1 December 1996, in Maryland, USA, which makes her 25 years old in 2021. Her mother is Destini Reign (mother) and her father Jeff Robinson, so she was primarily raised by her single mother alongside her two sisters, Destini Edwards and Angel in her hometown of Harford County. Reign’s mother was very supportive when it came to her acting passion, and constantly encouraged her to pursue her dream as she was growing up.
Reign seems to be well-educated however, she hasn’t revealed where she attended her high school, and didn’t join college after her matriculation because she was already busy with her entertainment career. Besides acting and writing songs, the Maryland-born star aspired to be a professional basketball player, and was very physically active as she was growing up, but realized that she wasn’t tall enough to become a professional player.
Prioritizing on modeling and acting, she started by landing several small roles in films at the age of three. Her mother took her for photoshoots as a child, and Reign revealed during an interview that ‘I can’t remember when I went for my first audition, but I technically didn’t audition for the first thing I booked. I booked a photoshoot off of a headshot when I was three. I covered my eyes throughout the entire session because I thought that the photographer looked scary.’
She later relocated to Los Angeles to pursue an acting career at the age of 11, with the help of her mother.
Hobbies and Interests
Edwards likes watching musicals; some of her favorites are “All That Jazz,” “Cinderella,” and “Hamilton” and during an interview, she disclosed that she’s obsessed with the latter, adding that she knows the musical by heart. She also likes dancing to hip-hop songs.
She loves pets, particularly cats, and has a cat named Midnight.
The Maryland-born actress enjoys spending her time indoors watching YouTube blogs and movies, and reading books.
When she is not acting, she likes going on shopping sprees.
