Condola Rashad has something to be excited about this week. Filming has begun for the Mt. Vernon native’s new TV series “Hieroglyph.”
Set in ancient Egypt, “Hieroglyph” is about a notorious thief who is released from prison to serve the Pharoah. Condola plays the Pharoah’s half sister Nefertari Kanakht, who is in a relationship with her brother’s closest advisor.
On Monday, the Tony-nominated Broadway star tweeted: “Oh hey good morning television hours. I’d forgotten about you. #5:15a:m #day1 #Hieroglyph #LehGo!” She also shared her excitement to start working with the show’s cast, which includes Hal Ozsan, Tasie Lawrence and Klariza Clayton.
“Hieroglyph” will be the first major television job for Condola, who is the daughter of longtime Mt. Vernon resident Phylicia Rashad and sportscaster Ahmad Rashad. She appeared in three episodes of NBC’s “Smash” in 2011.
