Dorothy Meyers will be on hand to celebrate Access Hollywood host Zuri Hall
Star of stage and small screen, actress Dorothy Meyers will be on hand to celebrate Access Hollywood host, Zuri Hall on February 28, 2020, at the Impact Magazine Awards. The media and industry-only event takes place at the Ritz Carlton in Los Angeles.
“I am thrilled to come out in support of NBC and my friends at Access Hollywood to celebrate the tremendous work of Zuri and the entire team at the show and the network”, Meyers said, in a press release. “I’m really looking forward to an amazing event.”
While much of her work has been done on the East Coast, the Trenton, New Jersey native has an extensive resume that includes co-hosting and modeling. Meyers, who grew up with nine older siblings and was raised by a single father, has transformed her career as a background player and non-speaking roles into becoming a go-to actress for such roles as Loraine Watson on the popular BET show, Makeup X Breakup. Earlier in 2019 she starred in the pilot episode of the Fox television hit, Almost Family (co-starring Oscar winner Timothy Hutton (Ordinary People, The Haunting of Hill House, American Crime), Brittany Snow (the Pitch Perfect film series, Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, American Dreams) and Meglyn Echikunwoke (Step Sisters, Late Night, House of Lies). Her performance in The Harvette Williams Story: Stalked Someone’s Watching (Investigation Discovery Channel) in 2011, while swift, is riveting and further emphasized the terror and impact of Williams’ real-life stalking and harassment nightmare. In just her few short scenes, Meyers captures fear in her portrayal. Williams would go on to establish Michigan’s Anti-Stalking Coalition.
On stage, Meyers took part in James Franco’s version of Tennessee Williams The Glass Menagerie in 2011. Franco staged the performance as part of Performa 11 and put his unique spin and direction on the classic play.
Meyers has also worked on a Harper’s Bazaar Online Tutorial with Kim Kardashian’s hair stylist, Justine Marjan. Her commercial work further extends to Dove, Booty Secret, AAA Taxi, Fitbit, Money Lion, Hair Illusion and Penn Medicine. Fans of the Dr. Oz Show and The Rachel Ray Show might have recognized her stints on their shows, too. Her poise and “can do” attitude is what keeps Meyers working as an actress with no role being a small one.
2020 looks to be an equally prolific year for Meyers. She is wrapping up work on the indie film Providence.
Ohio-born Hall joined the Access Hollywood family in October 2019 after working at E! Television, as well as MTV’s The Challenge. She’s also the sideline reporter for NBC’s American Ninja Warrior. The Emmy Award-Winning Hall got her start on TV at WNDY TV in Indianapolis, eventually becoming the official MC for the Indiana Pacers. Fans of her YouTube channel, Hey Zuri Hall!, can follow her adventures in being a “alpha babe” – a term coined to describe “an unapologetically ambitious millennial woman who is designing a life she loves and leads…” Hall is a growing force online, too, with a growing social media fan base on Instagram and Facebook.
