Jeanté Godlock is an American actress best known for her work as Mona Lisa in the Netflix original series Daybreak. The series was inspired by the graphic novel written and illustrated by Bryan Ralph. Her role as Simone Biles in the biopic The Simone Biles Story: The Courage to Soar is also considered her major career breakthrough.
Early life and Family
32-year-old Jeanté grew up with her parents in California, where she practiced and learned gymnastics and dancing for nearly ten years. When she was young, she had an inclination towards sports and fitness. To pursue her passion, she participated in five different sports during her high school times, including dancing and gymnastics.
Since she had quite an experience in dancing and gymnastic, she later decided to become an instructor. She also started managing her own fitness blog, motivating and encouraging people to become physically fit.
Although there is not much information about her parents or siblings online, she has mentioned on different occasions that her parents have always been supportive of her life choices.
After her 10-year training as a dancer and acrobatic gymnast, she focused all her skills on training other people. But her career as a physical trainer lasted only a few years as she was recruited to play the role of Simone Biles, a gymnast with 19 Olympic and World Championship medals to her name, in the biopic The Simone Biles Story: The Courage to Soar. The movie was released in 2018, becoming Jeanté’s first acting career breakthrough.
