ABOUT NOTLIM TAYLOR:
Notlim Taylor was born in Tarzana California. She was rushed to the hospital due to an emergency cesarean. When she was born her right leg kicked out first instead of her head. Her parents (Sha and Twain Taylor) couldn’t decide nor agree what to name her, but the clever mom remembered watching Oprah Winfrey’s episodes always noticing the ending credits and discovered the production read Harpo, which spelled backwards was Oprah! After her mom took just one look at her she decided to name her NOTLIM which spells MILTON backwards. MILTON is her biological father’s first name. Notlim’s father always had an interest in acting and photography so from the time Notlim was born there was a camera in her face following and capturing her every move. Around the age of 4, Notlim began doing local still photography for small catalog companies. A few years later, Notlim and her younger brother (TJ) ask their parents if they could show them a commercial skit they came up with which was really good so dad took them to his talent agency and they join the following week. When Notlim got her first audition, she booked it, a Disney Production! Soon after she would book several commercials but, the one that stood out for her was Disney’s “My Princes Makeover”! As boarding an airline to shoot a family commercial for Disney’s Aulani Hotel in Hawaii, Notlim surprisingly made a friend and fan who recited word for word of her previous Disney jobs. Notlim went on to book several national commercials, and television shows like, Nickelodeon’s “Instant Mom”, Kevin Hart’s “The Real Husbands of Hollywood” where she played Kevin’s adopted daughter (Lola) from a foster home in Bel-Air, ABC’s “Blackish” where she played Anthony Anderson’s hood cousin, and American Girl Movie “Grace Stirs Up Success” as Ella. You can currently see Notlim on a National Kellogg’s Commercial with Raisin Brand bike-a- thon. Be on the lookout for the highly anticipated NBC spring/summer line up “MARLON” starring Marlon Wayans and Essence Atkins. Notlim stars as MARLEY, a 14 year old book worm with a 4.0 GPA, an honor student in her private school. She is extremely educated, mature, and she juggles a lot of responsibility between dealing with the divorce of her parents while helping to raise her little brother Zack and school work. Notlim set life family characters are identical to her real life family, being her mom is conservative, her dad is humors/ funny at times, her brother having charismatic charm, and she being a mature 4.0 student that everyone loves…
