Niki Koss was an American actress who broke out in early 2017 when she nabbed a regular role on the drama series "Famous in Love" (Freeform, 2017- ). Born and raised in sunny Los Angeles, Koss knew she wanted to become an actress at the age of three. Her mother soon enrolled young Niki in theater classes, where the aspiring young actress thrived. While taking acting classes, Koss also caught the attention of a Ford Models talent agent, who signed her up for modeling work. Koss worked for Ford Models throughout her early teens, while mostly restricting the majority of her acting to classroom. By the age of 17, however, Koss decided she was ready to embark on a career as a professional actress. She soon began auditioning for film and TV roles all throughout her hometown of Los Angeles, and landed her first substantial film role in the 2013 drama "Red Wing." From there on, the acting roles began to pour in. Over the course of the next few years Koss appeared in several films, including "The Appearing" (2014), "Girl on the Edge" (2015), and "My Stepdaughter" (2015). 2015 was also the year she co-starred in the comedy-horror film "Scouts Guide to the Zombie Apocalypse" (2015). In between her acting work, Koss also wrote and directed short films, such as "La Douleur Exquise" (2014), as well as the TV movie "The Monroes" (2016). Then in early 2017 Koss landed her breakout role when she joined the cast of "Famous in Love." The series premiered on the Freeform network in April of 2017.
