Tamia “Coop” Cooper in “All American”
In The CW’s drama “All American,” Bre-Z plays Tamia “Coop” Cooper, Spencer’s (Daniel Ezra) best friend since childhood. Having grown up in South Crenshaw together, Coop is a driving force behind Spencer going to Beverly High, but it doesn’t come for free because as her protector in life gets a new zip code, she’s forced to find someone — or something — closer to home to keep her safe.
Hailing from Philadelphia, Bre-Z began her music career at the age of 14, giving impromptu performances around her neighborhood which got the attention of Freeway of Roc-A-Fella’s State Property. Freeway got her into the recording studio where the pint-sized rapper was able to hone her craft and begin to compose her own songs, find her musical voice, and cultivate her unique, androgynous style. Once Bre-Z finished school, she moved to Atlanta to further her music career. To make ends meet, she used the skills passed down by her father and grandfather, and she quickly became Atlanta’s go-to celebrity barber, with a client list that included some of the biggest names in sports, entertainment and music.
Bre-Z recently released her debut single “Best of Me (featuring Lil Mo)” and her EP, “The Grl.”
Bre-Z is also known for her roles in the television series “Empire,” “Fat Camp,” “Tales,” “The Real” and the television miniseries “The New Edition Story.” She was also seen in the television movie documentary “The Hip Hop World News.”
Bre-Z has a starring role in the feature “Down for Whatever,” which was released in 2018.
