Rayan Lawrance!

Rayan will be joining the Power_starz family as "Detective Claremont", and "Hawai Five O"

I have been blessed to work with Shiek ON and OFF camera. Not only does he bring excellence to his work on camera but to his students off camera as well. I have always been a fan of Shiek. When I have to go in for a audition I contact him first to see his availability cause I know he will have me ready to WIN.
