Regina Daniels was born on October 10, 2000. Despite still being a teenager, the 18-year-old considers herself to be old at heart. She says she “grew up too fast” and didn’t have the opportunity to explore like other children because she was working as an actress and model. 

“I never had friends. I would always find myself in the midst of adults… I’ve been an adult since birth… That’s why I am passionate about children; that’s why I always want to be around them, to have that feeling of being a child,” she said.

The producer called my mother and was like, ‘hello, Rita, come and take your daughter out of this set. She doesn’t know how to how to act, she can’t cry, she can’t remember her lines’," she recalled in a YouTube video.

Regina's mother called her crying and gave her an emotional pep talk, which caused her to start crying!
