Her outstanding performances have garnered widespread positive responses from audiences and critics alike. Ty;er Perry was so impressed with her stellar work that he cast her to star in three of his films, including the #1 box office hit, “WHY DID I GET MARRIED?” (LIONSGATE), alongside Janet Jackson and Jill Scott. Her accolades are still resonating from Perry’s “DADDY’S LITTLE GIRLS” (Lionsgate), opposite Gabrielle Union and Idris Elba, portraying Jennifer, the corrupt, vindictive ex-wife of Elba’s character, Monty. On and off the screen she seems to naturally command attention. Recent work includes a leading role in Tyler Perry’s sequel “WHY DID I GET MARRIED TOO”, “THE LONGSHOTS”, “PASTOR BROWN”, “COUPLES RETREAT”, and Russ Parr’s independent comedy, “SOMETHING LIKE A BUSINESS”, with David Alan Grier and Kevin Hart.
