Yara Shahidi is in a relationship with Trevor Jackson.
Jaden Smith, the first child of Will Smith and Jada Smith, once admitted that Yara Shahidi is the celebrity that inspires him the most.
“She’s just so smart and inspires me in so many ways”, he said.
Yara Shahidi and Trevor Jackson’s relationship on Grown-ish is complicated, to say the least, but off screen, it’s a different story.
The actors, who play Zoey and Aaron on the Freeform series, have a bond so tight, Trevor pretty much considers Yara family.
“She’s like my little sister. I love her, she’s awesome . . . that’s my dear friend,” Trevor once said during an interview.
Yara and Trevor claim to be strictly friends in real life, but judging by the trailer, a wedding is likely to be in store.
Yara made her cinematic debut in 2009, starring opposite Eddie Murphy in Paramount Pictures’ Imagine That, for which she received a Young Artist Award nomination for the best performance in a feature film category.
She also appeared in the Angelina Jolie action film Salt in 2010 as a next door neighbor. In 2012, she played Chloe Johnson, the daughter of President William Johnson, in the TV series The First Family.
