Supermodel-turned-actor Tyson Beckford returned to the borough of his youth Tuesday to shoot scenes for his forthcoming film “No Black Girls, Please.”
The 43-year-old chiseled hunk was spotted outside Good To Go in Morris Park with co-star and fellow model Sessilee Lopez, filming a few takes for the movie, which will highlight the seedy side of the fashion world.
“It’s about a girl from the Bronx that rises to the top of the fashion industry,” said producer Datari Turner, an ex-model.
“But there’s a lot more to it than just beauty,” Turner said. “There’s a whole underworld that people don’t see.”
Beckford, once the face of fellow Bronxite Ralph Lauren’s famous fashion line, spent several years in the borough as a teen. He was inducted to the Bronx Walk of Fame in 2012.
