Fans also love her for her portrayal of Naomi Nagata in the hit sci-fi drama, “The Expanse”. She also performs as a singer, under her stage name Miss Tipper.
Early Life and Education: A Trained Actress
Dominique was born in Limehouse, a borough located in East London, and while she holds British citizenship, her parents are from the Dominican Republic, but there is no conclusive information about their identities nor their vocations. So Dominique is also fluent in Spanish, which has helped her immensely throughout her career. ‘Being bilingual definitely helped me learn my lines faster’, said Tipper, when asked about her Caribbean heritage. ‘More kids should learn foreign languages, definitely.’ Dominique’s foray into the world of acting came at a particularly young age; at three years-of age, she started attending the Peggy O’Farrell Stage and Theatre School, a renowned English institution for young actors and artists. With an intense routine, she was able to master all the basics of acting even before she turned eight. Throughout her childhood, Dominique performed in various stage productions around the country, in both modern works and adaptations of classical plays, which allowed her to become versatile, more evident as her career unfolded.
Career Beginnings: Theater and Singing
At the age of 12, she was already performing at the Hackney Theater, a legendary theatrical institution in London, attracting the attention of a lot of talent agencies who saw potential in her. Her charisma and vociferous approach to more ‘dramatic’ roles was precisely what made her so special. Singing was another passion of hers, which prompted her to take vocal training in her teenage years. In 2001, she sang at a local showcase, and managed to win the judges over with her impressive vocal range. As a winner of the competition, she was awarded a place in Brazen Angels, an all-female pop group. On the English music scene, there is a popular trend of creating supergroups out of popular contest winners and other potential stars. Just like One Direction, Brazen Angels were destined for success, but unfortunately problems with management and contracts stalled the release of their debut EP, and they disbanded in 2005.
Becoming a Professional Dancer
While busy with recording her first single, Dominique realized that she could use the connections she has in the music industry to further her dancing career. With an impressive work ethic, she managed to become a dancer for many famous artists – Rihanna, Katy Perry, Kanye West, 50 Cent and Ne-Yo are just some of the names she has worked with. Nicole Scherzinger loved her performances so much that she offered her a job as a dancer on her 2007 world tour, and she also danced during performances of “The X Factor” and actively toured as a part of the “X Factor” tour in 2007. She was also featured as a dancer in several ceremonies, such as The Brit Awards and the Mobo Awards. Along with Jay Revell, a famous dancer and choreographer, she formed ICON, a dance duo, with the aim of working with the biggest names in the music industry, and to date, they’ve collaborated with Alexandra Burke and Katy B.
Dominique spent the majority of her earlier career as a dancer and theater actress, so she started appearing in television shows and movies fairly late; her first role was a small one, in the 2008 movie “Adulthood”, and even though she only appeared in one scene, she used this addition to her portfolio as motivation to become a popular actress. Tipper’s big break came when she played Sarah in “Fast Girls”, then landed an even bigger role, as she astounded both critics and fans by portraying Guardian Gabriela in the teenage vampire movie “Vampire Academy”. She finally achieved superstardom in 2015, by taking on the part of Naomi Nagata in “The Expanse”, a dystopian sci-fi series, immediately becoming a fan favorite. In 2016, she appeared in “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them” as an auror, and currently, she has several movies in post-production, which means that 2020 will be a big year for her. Not many actors manage to become this popular after focusing on other ventures during the first decades of their career.
Since leaving Brazen Angels, Dominique has been busy making a name for herself in the music world. She’s released several songs on her official YouTube channel, but all of her content vanished when her channel was discontinued for unknown reasons. Currently, she only has one song on YouTube, entitled “Superstar”.
