Neurodiverse actress and activist Kayla Cromer stars as Matilda, a high school senior who is driven to succeed and on the autism spectrum, in Freeform’s new comedy series, “Everything’s Gonna Be Okay.”
Before Cromer started to pursue a career in the entertainment industry, her original goal was to attend the FBI Academy and become a criminal profiler. When a San Francisco photoshoot soared across social media, her modeling career took off. Cromer has appeared on magazine covers and editorials nationwide, which led to getting represented in both San Francisco and Los Angeles.
Currently, Cromer is focusing on her acting career. She has appeared as a guest investigator in TLC’s “Ghost Brothers” and in the feature film “Apparition.” Cromer’s upcoming projects include the feature film “Okinawa.”
