Aletha Shepherd continues her string of successes by being selected to star in a summer national commercial for The CW Network. The actress and model will be shooting the spot this week in various locations around Los Angeles.
"Aletha is really on a roll right now," said her manager Earnest Harris. "We are so proud of her. She is truly one of the hardest working people I know and she so deserves to book this spot. I am so excited for her and can't wait for the commercial to air this summer. I have a feeling it is going to propel her even further."
Shepherd just wrapped shooting on a film in which she stars as a ballet dancer, further demonstrating her all around skills. She also recently shot and starred in a Zest spot and a commercial for Bed, Bath and Beyond.
All this has come in a short time in America. The actress hails from London, England and amassed an impressive array of credits back in the UK including roles on some British television shows. An accomplished model, she has been featured in campaigns for Pepsi, Nokia, Playstation and Mont Blanc. She then went on to travel the world competing in international beauty pageants including Miss World and Miss Globe where she won Miss Bikini and reached the top 10 finalists.
The CW commercial is an annual piece that highlights their summer programming, which includes such shows as Supernatural, The Carrie Diaries, America's Next Top Model, and Arrow, among other popular fare. Her spot will run all summer on the network.
Aletha Shepherd is managed by Harris Management.
