Back for a second season of “Famous in Love” you can catch this raven-haired beautiful, Niki Koss, on the very binge-able Freeform’s drama. Kloss stars as Alexis, rival to Paige (Bella Thorne) in both career and love. Koss’ previous credits include the films “Trafficked,” “Scouts Guide to the Zombie Apocalypse,” “Red Wing,” “The Appearing,” “Girl on the Edge” and the Lifetime TV movie “Stepdaughter.”
Aside from her roles onscreen, Koss takes her talents to another level as co-creator and director of the digital series “Royals” for the Galaxy Generation channel. The series won the Best Web Series and Audience Choice Short Film awards at the Laughlin International Film Festival and was recently accepted into two additional festivals as the Programmer’s Choice.

Funniest/craziest thing that has happened on the set of Famous in Love?
Charlie DePew’s brother came to set one day to visit him and I set up this whole elaborate prank and got him in on it. We had a PA tell Charlie that his brother got kicked off the set for taking pictures and he totally freaked out. It was pretty funny, although Charlie was not nearly as amused as we were.
If you want to spoil me rotten?
Get me a really warm and fuzzy robe, turn on some Billie Holiday and hand me a glass of some fancy red wine.
Instagram or Snapchat? and why?
Instagram. Snapchat is a little too quick for me. I do not like how everything disappears, I just want to save it all forever!
How do you start your day?
I cook myself some breakfast, watch an episode of whatever show I am binging at the time and hit the gym.
Known by your friends as the __________ one? And why?
Fun. I am always planning parties or dinners and I love to keep my friends entertained at all times.
When you’re not acting you are?
Writing or working on my directing. I love making movies, it’s my favorite thing in the world. I try to spend as much time as possible on my own projects when I’m not acting.
Who is the first person you call when you land a role?
My mom. She is the first person I call when anything happens in my career, good or bad. She’s been my rock throughout this journey since day one.
Tell me your favorite part about “Famous In Love”
It is such a fun show to watch! There are so many twists and turns and everyone has such a uniquely intriguing storyline.
Tell me about your work with PATH
PATH is an amazing organization that works to help the homeless in a whole plethora of ways. Their biggest effort has been helping the homeless find real homes. I love working with them as much as I can. Every time I’ve worked with the kids I’ve been blown away by how sweet, intelligent and loving they are. I would highly encourage anyone who’s interested in getting involved with helping the homeless to check out this inspiring organization.
