Jahking Guillory ended up becoming an actor out of necessity, but he still had a passion for the craft. He has been in the acting industry for only three years, but the characters he has played have opened him up to many interviews. So far he has five television credits and two film credits, but he also wants to be known for his music since he can rap too. Get to know more about Jahking, whose name stands for God and royalty.
Being a teenager can result in a person doing things they regret later all because they want to impress a crowd. Jahking, however, does not go with the flow, he would rather go against the grain if at all that is what his minds tells him to do. He still enjoys the company of his friends while in school, but once they suggest that they should go somewhere else, he instead opts to stay and wait for his mother to pick him up. Jahking has long curly hair, and it has led to him not being taken seriously, especially in his years as a footballer.
Whenever he was in the field, people expected him to play like a girl, but he showed them that looks do not matter by getting touchdowns in every game. Moreover, in his neighborhood as well as in school, Jahking was always the smallest kid; thus, people looked down on him. Similarly, Brandon also has his fair share of critics but proves to them that calling him an underdog is wrong. Jahking has always loved football ever since his father pushed him to start playing the sport at the age of five.
His mother would want him to stop when he came home in bruises, but his father could not hear it saying that he is a boy and can take whatever roughness came his way. The actor loved football, and by the time he was 11, he was playing for Inland Empire Ducks which won back to back championships. At the time he was seven and had to juggle between running track and football; therefore acting was mainly an afterthought. However, when he was 12, his mother told him to choose between football and acting.
Since he was already getting overwhelmed by the tournaments across states, Jahking chose acting and started to take his craft seriously. Jahking loves helping around the kitchen, especially when his mother is preparing his favorite meal, jambalaya. He fell in love with the sneakers so much that when he saw them for the first time, Jahking knew he had to get them. He, therefore, waited in line and was lucky to have received the last pair before they sold out, according to Interview Magazine. Although it does not affect his acting ability, his hair is his image, and therefore he will only cut it if it helps him fit into a certain character.
When Jahking was in eighth grade, one of his friends was stabbed to death for refusing to give the attacker his backpack. He was stabbed 17 times, and that incident affected the sister so much that she stopped going to school. That is not to say that his father was a dead beat because as he tells i-D , he has an amazing father. However, he needed to think about the future of his family, thus took acting seriously. His hard work has paid off because he has moved his mother and little sister out of the violence-ridden neighborhood.
He is proud to have all races saying they wish to be like Black Panther instead of Spiderman. Jahking admitted to Justin Tipping in Issue Magazine that his first kiss was on camera. He confessed to being nervous and even asking his mother for tips.
However, since then, he has had a lot of practice and gotten better at it. The fact that he carries condoms in his wallet is proof that he knows his way around girls.
