‘The Bold and the Beautiful’ Alum Nia Sioux to Star in Lifetime Movie
Nia Sioux is best known for her role as Emma Barber in The Bold and the Beautiful. Although Sioux’s time on the soap opera was brief, her character is part of an ongoing debate among soap fans. Since she departed from The Bold and the Beautiful, Sioux has remained busy with several other projects. One of her projects is a Lifetime movie, scheduled for later this month. Read on to learn more about Sioux’s movie.
Nia Sioux to star in Lifetime movie ‘Imperfect High’
Like many of her The Bold and the Beautiful co-stars, Sioux is making the jump to Lifetime films. According to Deadline, Sioux will appear in the upcoming movie Imperfect High with actor Sherri Shepherd. Sioux plays a teen named Hanna, who is trying to make friends after moving to town. Hanna’s life drastically changes when she falls in with the wrong crowd, leading her mother to intervene. Viewers will have to wait and see what happens to Sioux’s character when Imperfect High premieres on Saturday, August 18th.
Nia Sioux run on ‘The Bold and the Beautiful’
Before dealing with drama in a Lifetime movie, Sioux experienced plenty of onscreen mayhem during her run on The Bold and the Beautiful. Sioux joined the CBS soap opera in April 2018 as Emma, the niece of Justin Barber (Aaron D. Spears). Emma is a dancer who lands an internship at Forrester Creations, working with Hope Logan (Annika Noelle).
Emma then begins dating Xander Avant (Adain Bradley), yet their relationship is tested by his obsessive ex Zoe Buckingham (Kiara Barnes). Although Xander chooses Emma, the characters are slowly moved to the backburner as interest in their storyline waned. Viewers would say goodbye to Sioux and her character in June 2019. Emma died in a car wreck after being chased by Thomas Forrester (Matthew Atkinson).
Nia Sioux’s other work
Before becoming a soap opera actor, Sioux was a child star on the reality series Dance Moms. The show centered on strict dancing instructor Abby Lee Miller. As with any reality series, Dance Moms had plenty of drama with Abby’s toughness and the moms arguing with each other.
During an interview with Entertainment Tonight, Sioux reflected on her time with the Lifetime series. “Even though it still does have a negative kind of effect on me, I would never change anything because it’s made me the person who I am today,” she explained. Although Sioux loves acting, she hasn’t forgotten about her passion for dancing. Currently, she’s hosting the Facebook Watch series Dance With Nia, in which she partners with dancers with disabilities to put on incredible performances.
