Get to Know 10 Fun Facts About The Crossover's Deja Monique Cruz (Exclusive)

We are looking forward to the upcoming new Disney+ series The Crossover!

Ahead of the premiere, we’re getting to know some of the stars of the show, and we’re kicking it off with Deja Monique Cruz.

The actress stars as Maya, Josh (Jalyn Hall) and Jordan’s (Amir O’Neil) best friend who is “not so secretly in love with Filthy, aka Josh.

Based on the bestselling novel by Kwame Alexander, the upcoming series follows twin middle school basketball phenoms Jordan “J.B” and Josh “Filthy” Bell as they struggle with growing up, growing apart, and finding themselves — on and off the court.

Through his lyrical poetry, an adult version of Josh, aka Filthy, narrates the story of he and his brother’s coming of age, on and off the court, as their former professional basketball player father adjusts to life after basketball, and their mother finally pursues lifelong dreams of her own.
