Hello All!
My name is Tryphena Wade. I'm a professional actor of 19 years and have performed on stages internationally, regionally, Off-Broadway, and on Broadway! I portrayed Queen Sarabi πŸ¦πŸ‘ΈπŸΎ in Disney's The Lion King on tour and on Broadway for 10 years (Yes! A decade!) and have recently made the leap from NYC to sunny LA! I'm also an author (The Heart Works: A Collection) and writer, currently fundraising to produce my film SOLOMON'S MOOD (it's a love story! #BlackLove)
