When it comes to dance dramas, we can’t deny that Save The Last Dance holds a special place in our hearts.
Between Sara (Julia Stiles) and Derek’s (Sean Patrick Thomas) star-crossed love affair, the killer soundtrack, and some seriously sick dance moves, Save The Last Dance ticks all the boxes when it comes to our checklist of what makes dance flicks great.
Sara may have been fairly quick to adapt to the hip-hop scene, but if there’s one person who never cut the ballet prodigy a break, it was Derek’s ex, Nikki. Sara and Nikki might have had their fare share of issues with each other, but we can’t deny Save The Last Dance wouldn’t be the same without its resident mean girl.
So what’s Bianca Lawson up to these days? It turns out the actress has come a long way since the days she used to spend showing off her best dance moves in Chicago’s South Side.
Since wrapping on Save The Last Dance, Lawson has gone on to score roles on some of our favorite series, including The Secret Life of The American Teenager, Pretty Little Liars, The Vampire Diaries, Teen Wolf, and Witches of East End.
Most recently, Lawson nabbed a part in Ava DuVerany’s sweeping sibling drama, Queen Sugar.
Despite all her success, it’s clear Lawson has stayed down to earth and nothing proves that more than her latest post on Instagram where the actress shared a photo of herself posing on the NAACP Awards red carpet.
“dress: vintage from my closet,” wrote Lawson in the caption.
Gotta love a lady who isn’t afraid to bust out a seriously amazing staple ensemble!
