Jourdan Dunn graces screens in new show Riches
Model and activist Jourdan Dunn has made her acting debut. The 32-year-old is starring in a new drama series Riches, which follows the fight for control of influential beauty empire Flair & Glory. “I’ve never seen anything like this on UK TV at all,” Dunn told Vogue.co.uk of the script. “We have so many examples of these types of stories over in the States – [ones about] a Black family of opulence or wealth. We have Fresh Prince, we have Empire, but I can’t think of an example that we have [in Britain]. I was like, ‘Oh, wow, this is something that we need. We’ve been needing.’” Dunn also told the outlet that she hopes to continue pursuing acting in the future after dipping her toe in to the waters with her Riches character Davina. “Anything to do with magic and witches—anything mystical, I love that,” she said. “Also just more stories that show Black joy that we don’t get to see represented.” Watch the trailer for Riches below.
