Octavia Ethridge

Octavia Ethridge was born on January 5, 1994 in Aiken, South Carolina. She is the oldest of six siblings, five sisters from her military father, Michael Ethridge, who is in the Army, and one brother from her single mother, Brent Johnson. After graduating high school, Octavia joined the Marine Corps, where she served four active years so that she’d be able to go to college to pursue her dreams in screenwriting. After her contract with the Marine Corps ended, she attended The Los Angeles Film School to pursue her bachelor’s degree in film production. Octavia continues to be the voice for women and people of color, spreading awareness through her films such as her current film “Stand Up For Something” and her past project, “Nice For What (Women Empowerment)”. Today Octavia is working on a couple TV series “Akebulan: Rise of a New King” and “The Norm”, that she plans on pitching to networks and her debut feature film “Love In Lagos”, that starts here in the United States then travels abroad to Lagos, Nigeria. She is a proud member of the LGBTQIA community and thrives to prove to be a woman of color, or even human that can overcome many obstacles that life has and to become very successful in the film industry. She is a feminist and a strong believer in equal rights, and she is determined to break through all barriers.
