This is Natalie, no not me, the other Natalie. She’s one of my fellow female bossies absolutely killing it in her field right now, regardless of whether the elitists are ready for her vision or not. She got me my @bbcthree Gig coming out soon. #staytuned
It can get confusing for people because we both work in the same industry, move in the same circles, fight the same challenges AND have the same name.
LUCKILY, one of us is of Royal African, Nigerian blood, Granddaughter to the ruler of Lagos. Thank God 💆🏻♀️ . . . Else you’d never tell us apart! Look out for @transitionstagecompany 😎#enterstagewrite#twins#natalie#whichnatalie ? #natalieedwards#nonotthatnatalie#theothernatalie#nataliecutler#femaleboss#feminist#topshop#entreprenHER

I used to own a 24-hour diner. It was called the Korner Diner. I have some of the fondest and shittiest memories of that place. Almost feels like a dream - a past life. A lot of people thought I sold it. Unfortunately, that rumor is not true. My landlord thought he could back me into a wall when my lease was up. Instead of taking his unfair offer, I walked away. Losing every dollar I invested plus more. Lost everything but my dignity. Fast forward almost ten years, I'm #blessed and standing on my own two as a creative. Had to sacrifice. Had to sleep on a couch for almost three years- that fucking sucked. Had a roommate call me "the guy on the couch". That hurt. Had to work in catering. Then as a waiter. The irony of that - used to own a restaurant now only to ask pompous assholes on 42nd St if they want cappuccino. Funny how your ego can take the biggest beating in the pursuit of your dream. But guess what? I don't regret any of it. It just pushed me to work harder and longer. To everyone out there questioning themselves in pursuit of a dream... I say this... Every situation is only temporary. Try to stay level-headed. Think rationally but with your heart. Listen to your true instincts. Keep fighting. Keep your head up. I lost my lease because of someone else's greed. Ain't no thing. I gave myself a new lease. So now when I #actor ... I fucking mean it.
@bodycourage “Thanking my guardian angels today: my grandma & my father. They have been with me on this journey and have seen me through some incredible achievements and trials. We've been based in LA for a year and a half and the odds that were against us to get here were no joke. The day of my Grandmother's funeral, I booked my first television job in LA on This Is Us. After acting on stage professionally for 10 years, my team told me to take the leap and begin auditioning for television. The things that were happening in my life at the time can only be written in an autobiography. Even the physical move to LA, for those that were there, y'all know and I am so grateful for y'all. I was afraid. I had ZERO dollars. I had also been so conscious of my body, I didn't know what I would look like on the big screen. Spent this afternoon working on my acting reel today and am so honored to have worked alongside some truly gifted and life changing actors. Moving my family here has been an exciting ride and I'm so hyped for what else God and my angels have in store next. Stay the course. You got this actors! I promise you it gets better!” -Danielle Pinnock
