Ziah Colón grew up in Jonesboro, Georgia and is of Puerto Rican descent. She began acting in her teens at the urging of her very supportive parents who saw passion, determination and that "something special" in their little girl. Ziah immediately enrolled in acting classes. While simultaneously attending university, she secured an agent and began working to earn her big break, something not easily achieved in Atlanta, Georgia. She appeared in a series of regional commercials until Hollywood came south and a number of productions began filming in Georgia. Right away Ziah landed small roles on television shows such as Army Wives and Drop Dead Diva, but it was her movie debut as "Rusty" in the 2011 remake of Footloose that changed the course of her career. Ziah relocated to Los Angeles following her work on the film and that same year won the Rising Star Award at The Bronze Lens Film Festival in Atlanta. With the collective determination of her and her team, Ziah has been a lead in the television pilot Jacked Up opposite Patrick Warburton, a lead in the movie The Wedding Party, guest-starred on The Mentalist, played a supporting role in The Night Stalker, and most recently a supporting role in To The Bone directed by Marti Noxon.
