Allan K Washington On Survival Of The Thickest
Netflix’s Survival of the Thickest which comes from A24 is based on a memoir of the same name by Michelle Buteau who is also starring in the show. The show centers on Mavis Beaumont, played by Buteau. Black, plus-size, and newly single, Mavis unexpectedly finds herself having to rebuild her life after putting all her eggs in one man’s basket, but she’s determined to not only survive but thrive with the support of her chosen family, a positive attitude, and a cute v-neck with some lip gloss.
The book was first published in 2020 with the paperback being released on February 1.
“It’s been so damn amazing finding a home with Netflix,” said Buteau. “To say I’m excited to continue my relationship with them is an understatement. I’m over the moon and I’m under it. Danielle has been a dream partner and I can’t wait to share what we’ve been cooking up.”
One of the stars performing alongside her is Allan K Washington. He is reportedly portraying the role of “Trent” in the show.
Additionally, the other stars that you’ll see in the show are Tone Bell, Tasha Smith, Liza Treyger, Anissa Felix, Garcelle Beauvais, Taylor Selé, Anthony Michael Lopez, Marouane Zottie, and Sarah Cooper.
While the show unveiled its first look on 24 May, the full 8-episode will premiere on 13 July.
How Much Is Allan K Washington Net Worth?
Allan K Washington sits at an impressive net worth above $250K. The first he could recall being on stage was “playing a crocodile when I was in second grade in a school musical.” Then in the eighth grade, he played Elwood P. Dowd in the play Harvey by Mary Chase.
It was the first time Allan was bitten by the acting bug. The summer before his sophomore year of high school, he applied to and was accepted to Usher’s Camp New Look (this is indeed Usher, the mega-famous pop star). The actor was elated. When he got there, though, he was having a hard time making friends.
But one day, they did an acting master class with Usher and another star of a popular film of the time. He did a scene from Spike Lee’s Do The Right Thing. After his scene, Usher looked at him and asked, “Do you want to be an actor?” I said, “…umm, I guess so…” He then peered over his sunglasses and gave a defining, “I think you could do it.”
And that’s when Allan decided to really take acting seriously.
The actor built his career entirely on theatre and proceeded towards the on-screen gigs. His theatre credit includes The Spongebob Musical, Dave the Musical (Wkshp), Table, A Man’s A Man, The Music Man, Lost in the Stars, Johnny Johnson, Carmen, Verdi’s Aida, and The Flying Dutchman among others.
Whereas he has also performed on Broadway on the show SpongeBob Squarepants.
