Popular American Television Series, Originals Casts Nigerian Actress, @Tracyifeachor As Aya


Authoritatively, if you’re not watching ‘The Originals’… you’re among the 0% of the world’s population not watching it.

You know how this people bring up characters like ‘It’s nothing’

So, Marcel was having a team talk with his minions and out of nowhere anice voice pilfered through my eyes and lo and behold this beautiful black lady stepped outta the shadows. I was so much entranced (Guess, that was the point) that I ran to Google for help.

I must know who this lady is and I hope she’s here to stay… and Lo and behold, she is Nigerian.

I knew she had to be tho… such beauty… soothing voice… calm and menacing at the same time

“Built like a goddess, vicious as a viper” as the noble Elijah Mikaelson described her.


Tracy Ifeachor was born and raised in the sea-side city of Plymouth in Devonshire, England. After being crowned Senior Verse Speaking Champion of the South-West at the age of 15, Tracy was keen to go to drama school to study acting but her father, a Professor of Electronic engineering, an accomplished lecturer and published author in his field, was keen for Tracy to finish her education.

Tracy later won a scholarship to a top acting school in London, England and graduated with honors from The Royal Central School of Speech & Drama. Even before graduating, Tracy was already attracting attention from the world renowned “Royal Shakespeare Company” and landed her first acting job with them.

Tracy quickly went on to star in a Revolver Entertainment and Magma Pictures feature film called “Blooded” as the Co-lead, Eve.

Tracy then attracted the BBC’s attention and landed her first television role as Leila, in the 27 year running medical drama, “Casualty”. It didn’t stop there, Tracy was nominated for the nationally recognized Ian Charleson Award, for her outstanding performance of Shakespeare’s largest lead female role, Rosalind in As You Like It.

After appearing in David Tennant’s final “Dr Who” all star cast episodes and season climax, as the daughter of “Homeland” star David Harewood, Tracy came to transatlantic recognition and made her Stateside debut, in the HBO & Cinemax’s third season of “Strike Back: Vengeance” as Lilian Lutulu, opposite Charles Dance & Eamonn Walker. In her spare time Tracy is a youth worker and enjoys high board diving.
