Yaya DaCosta Alafia to Play Whitney Houston in Lifetime Biopic

If you watched the third (and best) season of America’s Next Top Model, you’ve probably also been following runner-up Yaya DaCosta Alafia’s subsequent acting career with some interest. 

Alafia, who most recently co-starred in Lee Daniels’ The Butler, has been cast in the lead role in I Will Always Love You: The Whitney Houston Story. Directed by Angela Bassett, the Lifetime movie will focus on the R&B diva’s troubled marriage to Bobby Brown, starting from the early days of their courtship through the difficult years in the celebrity spotlight. 

The telepic is planned for a 2015 premiere.
