Daniella Perkins Talks About Embracing Her Natural Hair on 'Knight Squad'

Daniella Perkins rocks a bold patterned dress in this shot from the February/March 2019 issue of Girls’ Life magazine.

The Knight Squad actress shares the cover with co-star Lilimar.

In her feature, Daniella opened up about representation in Hollywood and playing Ciara on Nickelodeon’s Knight Squad.

“There’s a very big lack of representation in the entertainment business as a whole,” she says. “Growing up, there was nobody who really looked like me on-screen. I used to think, ‘Aw man, my hair is so big.’ But now, I get to wear my hair curly on Knight Squad and I totally embrace the heck out of it.”

Daniella adds, “So many curly-haired girls have been responding to it and saying that we’re hair twins!”
