NEW YORK — Toni Braxton’s autistic son makes his acting debut in her new Lifetime movie, “Twist of Faith,” and could have had a bigger role, but the singer didn’t want to put too much pressure on him.
“He was supposed to play my son initially but by the time we worked out the shooting schedule, school had started,” Braxton said of 9-year-old Diezel. (She also has an 11-year-old named Denim.)
“Even though he’s considered high functioning right now, he wasn’t in the past, and that’s why I thought him carrying the movie and trying to do the movie and tutoring would have been too much for him,” the 45-year-old singer said.
See what part Diezel will play, plus Toni’s thoughts on working with her son on The Huffington Post.
We haven’t heard much from her in a while, but singer/actress, Toni Braxton, announced via Twitter that she will be starring in a movie on the Lifetime Movie Network.
The Urban Daily reports:
Her youngest son Diezel will be acting opposite his mom in he film. Braxton tweeted, “I will be filming for a new movie for Lifetime and Diezel will be in it as well, playing the role of my son!”
As expected, as soon as Toni tweeted the movie news, she was bombarded with questions about the film project. Braxton put a stop to all the inquiries with a follow-up tweet. “That’s all I can say for now.”
In case you’re not familiar, Lifetime Movie Network shows original, made for television, women-oriented movies exclusively. Popular Lifetime movies include Natalee Holloway, Mother, May I Sleep with Danger? (starring Tori Spelling), The Face on the Milk Carton and No One Would Tell (starring Fred Savage and Candace Cameron).
It’s great to hear about this opportunity for Toni considering the health and financial problems that have plagued her and her family over the past few years. There isn’t much more information out there about this movie and I’d be surprised if she talks about it much -or at all – on Braxton Family Values next season because WeTV and Lifetime are competitors. Still, I’ll definitely be looking out for the previews. If it’s planned to be anything like every other Lifetime Movie, get the tissues ready because it’s sure to be a tearjerker.
