Lamon Archey of the #1 hit CBS daytime soap 'Young and the Restless' has been announced as the male lead for a cinematic short film that is set around the disease bulimia nervosa. 'The B Word,' is currently in pre-production and is a first effort for A Celistan & Co Films which is written & produced by twins Nakisha & Nichole Celistan.

Shortly after celebrating his one year anniversary at Y&R, Archey is now set to play the role of Rashid, in the short film 'The B Word,' the story of two sister's struggling plight with bulimia. He plays a husband struggling with his wife's obsessive nature dealing with bulimia nervosa and protecting his daughter from the cycle. In preparing for the role Archey revealed that as a 10 year veteran in the modeling world there were always whispers of peers that were rumored to be affected by the disease. He was always aware that bulimia has no color boundaries from his experience in the modeling culture, but was shocked that the scale has now tipped revealing that bulimic behavior is more common in African-American youth.

The film was motivated by the real-life sister duo at A Celistan & Co Films, where Nakisha Celistan was suspicious that her sister had fallen prey to bulimia during college. She began researching the disease and was shocked by the statistics of African-American woman affected and felt the story had to be told. Through their Kickstarter campaign the Celistan twins have provided valuable statistics and their discovery that low-income African-American young girls are at the highest risk for bulimia nervosa.
