MEET SUMMER’S “It Couple”, Dope Stars Shameik Moore and Chanel Iman.
Co-executive-produced by Pharrell Williams, Dope sparked a bidding war at Sundance – and for its star, Shameik Moore, 20, the hubbub is a dream come true: “I used to literally pray about fame,” Shameik, who also dances and raps, told Glamour. “I’d write it down, try to visualise my future, and now it’s happening! I’m extremely thankful.”
Model Chanel Iman, 24, leaned on her Victoria’s Secret experience to prep for her role; on her first day of filming she had to strip down for a makeout scene with Moore. “One thing I got from modeling since I was 16 is my F**k it – you have to own it’ attitude,” she told the publication. “Sometimes you have to find that confidence within yourself.”
