Born in Evergreen Park, IL, Lyric Nicole Ross started demonstrating her acting talent at age 2 when she would recite lines and scenes from some of her favorite films.
Eventually signing with an agent, Lyric would go on to book print ads, commercials, and making her first big screen appearance in the Bollywood movie, Dhoom 3.
Her television debut came at the age of 11 when she appeared in an episode of the USA Network series Sirens and NBC's Chicago Fire in 2015. Not long after, Lyric joined the cast of the Indie film entitled Rogers Park; the Untitled Lena Waithe Project and the upcoming 2018 Indie film, Canal Street, where she portrays the daughter of a Chicago prosecutor (played by Mekhi Phifer).
During her continuance in auditioning for other films and projects, Lyric was chosen out of a nationwide search to play the role of Deja on NBC’s hit tv show, This Is Us. Along with an all-star cast, the young starlet has stolen the hearts of viewers who tune in weekly.
Happiest when performing, Lyric displays a confidence and maturity that is beyond her years. When not filming, Lyric indulges in her love for math, science, music, fashion, movies and good food.
Lyric is represented by Gray Talent Group.
