On her role as a savvy entrepreneur on TV One’s Belle and traveling

Elise Neal

I’m completely open to change.

It’s her seventh television series and actress Elise Neal, who plays Jill Cooper on TV One’s “Belle,” says she couldn’t let the opportunity pass to work with legendary sitcom savant Ed Weinberger (“Cosby Show”).

In the cover story, rolling out magazine’s editor-at-large Terry Shropshire highlights the Memphis-born actresses’ body of work – early in her career, Neal was a dancer and thespian, never dreaming of becoming a movie star.

“I’ve studied Shakespeare at the College of Arts in Philly. And I have done those plays on stages. I have a different path than others, so maybe that makes it a little easier for me,” she enlightens.

“Traveling to so many countries changed me as an individual. I’m completely open to change. And I’m more adaptable to different people, different cultures, and different experiences. I’ve seen some of the most beautiful monuments on Earth and met some beautiful people [in places like] Japan.”
