Lidya Jewett


Sara Hill, “Good Girls”

Lidya Jewett plays Sara Hill on NBC’s drama “Good Girls.”

Jewett, who was born in Africa and is now 10, started her career in Miami doing local commercial and print work. She was soon cast in a guest-starring role on Nickelodeon’ “See Dad Run” and then as a series regular in “Wits Academy.”

Jewett was most recently seen alongside Taraji P. Henson, Octavia Spencer and Janelle Monae in the Oscar-nominated film “Hidden Figures.” She was also cast in the Marvel film “Black Panther,” opposite Chadwick Boseman and Lupita Nyong’o, as well as “The Darkest Minds.”

When not on set, Jewett loves giving back to others through packing relief meals for FEMA, reading books to young children and sponsoring an orphan in Uganda by providing for her education. When not on location, she splits her time between Los Angeles and Florida.
