Host Timothy Michael interviews Symera Jackson Childress!
Symera Jackson is the 14-year-old rising star of the highly anticipated Netflix series “Team Kaylie.” The series follows a self-obsessed celebrity, played by Bryana Salaz, who is forced out of her comfort zone due to a community service order; she must then lead a wilderness club at an inner-city school. Symera can be seen playing ‘Jackie,’ a self-described “good girl” who doesn’t like to break any rules; a character that is not unlike Symera herself. Symera was also in the final scene in the chilling Sandy Hook Promise PSA that exclusively premiered on The TODAY show on 9/18/19, and is taking over the internet.

She made her transition to television with her first co-starring role on ABC’s “Alex Inc.” alongside Zach Braff.
