In 2008, she landed a big role, playing herself, on the reality international television series called "Entrapment," later released in 2009 in South Korea and Russia. In 2010, Deanna decided to relocate to Hollywood, California where she appeared in the Indie films "No Weapon Formed Against Us" as Roxanne, starring Tommy "Tiny" Lister, and in the feature film "White T" as Felicia starring Eric Roberts, the Mixon Brothers, and many others. In 2013, Deanna Morris joined a gospel theater group which allowed her the experience of performing live in front of hundreds. Her determination to learn all areas of her craft did not stop there. Deanna didn't want to limit herself; therefore, she decided to go behind scenes as a costume designer on several feature films, co-writer on several projects, and also as a director to several indie projects. Deanna has been able to act with major actors, actresses, and industry insiders at a pace that very few young professionals have experienced.
According to many of her co-stars, producers, and directors, the sky is no limit for this young star that has incredible range, intense concentration, and a steely determination to be involved with projects that challenge her professionally with wide-ranging subject matters and characters. Not only is she beautiful, talented, and a driven successful entrepreneur, she is also a mother of two. She is working on producing her own film project called "Beyond the Case" a television drama that brings awareness to missing children and exploitation.
