Yaya DaCosta Johnson Cast in TV’s Ugly Betty (Aug 09)

April 13, 2010

Entertainment Weekly posted an article announcing that Cycle 3’s Yaya DaCosta Johnson has landed an acting role in TV’s Ugly Betty. Here’s the text from the article:

Somewhere Tyra Banks is smiling.

Polarizing America’s Next Top Model alum Yaya Dacosta—she was cycle 3’s runner-up—has been tapped to take over the recurring role of Wilhelmina’s defiant daughter Nico on Ugly Betty, sources confirm to me exclusively.

The character—originated by Jowharah Jones—resurfaces in the Oct. 9 season premiere and promptly gets caught up in one of the show’s new mysteries.

Dacosta’s previous acting credits include All My Children and that forgettable dance movie with Antonio Banderas.

On a scale of 1-10 (1 being “ugh, she was an arrogant snot on Top Model!” and 10 being “woo-hoo, I knew she was destined for greatness!”), what do you give this recast?
