Funny In Failure

Feb 12, 2024

Isha Blaaker is an actor and model and has just made his big screen debut opposite Aunjanue Ellis, Niecy Nash, Jon Bernthal, Jasmine Cephas Jones, Finn Wittrock, and more in Oscar-nominated filmmaker Ava DuVernay’s highly anticipated film feature “Origin” (Neon), based on Pulitzer Prize-winning author Isabel Wilkerson’s 2020 bestselling book “Caste: The Origins of Our Discontents.” 

On the television front, Isha most recently starred in debut roles for season two of “Run The World” on STARZ and opposite Colman Dolmingo in the eighth and final season of AMC’s “Fear The Walking Dead.”  Isha is also well-known for his role in the 12th film in Tyler Perry’s iconic Madea franchise, “A Madea Homecoming.” Before Isha landed his breakout role in a feature Netflix film, he honed his craft with a handful of recurring appearances in television, appearing on the Emmy-nominated HBO Max series, “The Flight Attendant,” opposite Kaley Cuoco, as well as Violet Hour Media’s horror-thriller series, “Red Riding Hoods,” and a SBS6 action series, “DNA” in the Netherlands.

It wasn’t long after he obtained his master’s degree that he was scouted by an American modelling agency to come work in New York City, and throughout the past few years Isha has starred in major international luxury brand campaigns for the likes of Hugo Boss, L’Oreal, Ralph Lauren, and an Estée Lauder commercial opposite Ana de Armas, to name just a few. As his name continued to become more well-known in fashion, Isha developed a love for acting and began taking classes and studying the craft professionally for four years prior to booking back-to-back roles in TV and film. He now credits acting as his true passion and a daily commitment next to modelling.
