Brea Grant brings a combination of facts and fiction with a comedic approach in 12 Hour Shift. A perfect reason to bring the comedic actress, Nikea Gamby-Turner to play nurse Karen.
Here’s the synopsis of the film:
Over the course of one night in 1998 at an Arkansas hospital, a junkie nurse (Angelia Bettis), her scheming cousin (Chloe Farnworth) and a group of black market organ-trading criminals get caught up in a heist gone wrong.
Nikea Gamby-Turner’s acting career began while attending Jackson State University. Here she fell in love with drama. She attended school while simultaneously hosting a local channel W23BC entertainment spotlight where she interviewed artists. Also covered a local segment called Weekend Preview. When returning home she took on standup comedy at the Mavericks flats, eventually leading to an invite to the Comedy Store among other comedy clubs. She returned to take acting at a serious level and enrolled into acting classes in Los Angeles. She then decided she would be a comedic actress. Turner is known for Colombiana and Behind The Candelabra.
