British actress Zaraah Abrahams seen in 'Black Girl in Paris'

Spike Lee has cast British actress Zaraah Abrahams as the female lead in his Kickstarter-funded film.

The filmmaker disclosed he had discovered Abrahams while watching “Black Girl in Paris,” a short film by one of his students, Kiandra Parks.

Lee revealed the selection on his Kickstarter page, where he has raised 54% of the $1.25 million needed. He has 15 days left to meet the campaign goal.

Lee has raised nearly half the funds from two pledge areas — $260,000 from 26 pledges of $10,000 each for a courtside seat and dinner with Lee at a New York Knicks home game and $65,000 from 13 pledges of $5,000 each for associate producer credit on the film.

The mysterious “Spike Lee Joint” project centers on humans addicted to blood.
