1. Alexandra Shipp, Aaliyah: Princess Of R&B, TV,2014.     Superstar at 15, Aaliyah was dead in a plane crash at 22… When the Disney’s Shake It Up! TV  star pulled out of the latest Lifetime  biopic everything was shuttered until a new lead could be found.   The equally beatuous Shipp had less issues with the production than Zendaya who said she quit over production values (or lack of them), complications (music rights) and  oh, not forgetting the fact that Aaliyah’s family disapproved of the venture.
