Loren Lott2...

Loren Lott was born September 9,1992.  She  is a San Diego native. She came to Atlanta with her twin brother, Evan Lott, to earn her bachelor’s degree in Mass Media arts from Clark Atlanta University. Loren dreamed of entertaining, but her mother, Sharian Lott, told her at 7 she wouldn’t be able to go to Knott’s Berry Farm if she was famous so Loren decided to pursue other things, but Sharian did tell Loren that at 13 she could ask her again. Later Loren realized her mother just wanted her to have a normal childhood. To Sharian’s surprise when Loren turned 13 she asked her mother if she could act and Sharian accepted, and after sending hundreds of bold messages to agents Loren finally got one in Hollywood along with a manager a month later.

Since then she has been acting, singing, and dancing, professionally in theatre, Tv, and film including: several national commercials starting Disney and Spotify, several music videos, American Idol Top 8 girls in 2015, several leading lady roles in theatre, including: Sara in Ragtime, Erzule in Once on this Island, Fiona in Shrek the Musical, Dembi in the world premiere of Underground etc., including her Broadway debut in Motown The Musical this year, and a growing list of Tv credits including: Greenleaf on OWN, The Game on BET, Powers on FX, Fatal Attraction on TVOne, and several films including two coming out in 2017. She also has a very impressive social media presence on Instagram and Facebook with well over 150 million views on videos she makes with her fiancé, Actor/Director Terayle Hill, hair tutorials, and short funny rants.

Actress, writer, artist, designer, and TV personality, Tracey Cherelle Jones is the epitome of a contemporary renaissance woman. Tracey began acting at the tender age of 8 years old after nailing her very first audition, a national McDonald’s commercial. This inspired her, and she went on to do several more commercials and print work. Working as a child instilled in her a supreme confidence that has carried into adulthood.

After graduating from college with a degree in Pan African Studies, Tracey landed the leading female role in the smash hit “Don’t be a Menace to Society While Drinking Your Gin and Juice in the Hood”, also starring Shawn and Marlon Wayan’s, directed by Paris Barclay. Following the success of Don’t be a Menace…”, Tracey also starred in “The Players Club”, directed by Ice Cube, “Baby Boy”, directed by John Singleton, and several other studio films. Her TV credits include the series regular role of Cassie Coleman on “Good News”, a recurring role on “Men, Women, and Dogs”, and countless guest starring roles on hit shows such as “Family Matters”, “The Wayan’s Bros.”, and “The Jaime Foxx Show”.


After studying with some of the best in the business, and feeling a lack of opportunity for diverse roles for minority actors, Tracey decided to write the stories and create the characters she would like to see on the big and small screen. She has penned two pilots and a feature length film. She also produced and hosted a pilot titled “Living Large”, which is a contemporary, urban version of “Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous”.

Tracey’s drive, tenacity, and strong work ethic has allowed her to become a power house in all that she does. Through her creativity, education, and experience she continues to make her goals a reality. She is an inspiration and a true renaissance woman!

Vanessa Williams(Fine Sistas from the 90’s)

Vanessa Williams....png

I thought Vanessa Williams stole the show in New Jack City.  She was beautiful but so deadly in the film.  She held her own with Wesley Snipes,Ice-T and Mario Van Peeples. I’ve always thought she was an underrated beauty.  Williams was born on May 12,1963.

Born and raised in the Bedford Stuyvesant section of Brooklyn, New York, Vanessa Williams became a member of the New York City Opera’s Children’s Chorus at age 11. Vanessa then signed with a talent manager and booked her first audition, a commercial for Frito Lay. Her pattern for success clearly set, her winning streak had only just begun.

After graduating from New York’s famed High School of Performing Arts she earned a Bachelor’s degree in theatre and business from Marymount Manhattan College.

A member of all three actors unions, Vanessa kept busy striking a balance as a professional actress and college student. When she landed a recurring role on The Cosby Show (1984) as (Theo’s scene partner in a school play), a high-strung student/actress named Jade Marsh, she made a friend and fan of “The Cos” Bill Cosby. So impressed with her work, “Mr. C” asked her back to play yet another role, Theo’s girlfriend Cheryl Lovejoy, a sweet young thing from Barbados.

Her New York stage credits grew to include the Lincoln Center production of Death and the King’s Horseman and the Broadway productions of Sarafina and Mule Bone, the Langston Hughes and Zora Neale Hurston collaboration. The opening night celebration for Mule Bone packed a double punch of pleasure, as New Jack City (1991) was released in theaters nationwide that same evening. In this, her first feature film, Vanessa plays Keisha, the gun toting head of security opposite Wesley Snipes as drug czar Nino Brown.

Vanessa arrived in LA in September of ’91, “just to check it out.” A month later she was cast as single mother Anna-Marie McCoy in the Gothic horror film, Candyman (1992). She made her west coast move official in January of ’92, and became a media darling when she hit the media radar as one of the stars in the Fox TV hit Melrose Place (1992).

After residence on Melrose Place (1992) Vanessa traveled to Spain to sing and host the variety show Grand Fiesta on the Telecinco network in Madrid. Back from Europe she was immediately cast as a series regular in Steven Bochco’s critically acclaim television drama Murder One (1995), where she earned her first NAACP Image Award Nomination.

She appeared opposite Lisa Kudrow in the Albert Brooks feature Mother (1996), then went on location in South Africa to star in A Woman of Color (1997), a film written and directed by Oscar nominated director, Bernard Joffa. She followed these projects with a ten-episode arc on Chicago Hope (1994), where she was again nominated for an NAACP Image Award.

Vanessa starred in two BET original made for TV movies: Incognito (1999) and Playing with Fire (2000), and as guest star on Total Recall (1994), The Pretender (1996), NYPD Blue (1993), The Steve Harvey Show (1996), Malcolm & Eddie (1996), and Living Single (1993), Cold Case (2003) among other others.

She starred (opposite her soon to be Soul Food (2000) costar Rockmond Dunbar) in Punks (2000), the award-winning feature film directed by Patrik-Ian Polk, which premiered at The Sundance Film Festival in 2000.

She earned a Daytime Emmy Nomination for her extraordinary work in Our America (2002) a Showtime original movie directed by Ernest R. Dickerson, which also premiered at Sundance the following year.

As hot mama, Maxine Chadway, in the hit Showtime series Soul Food (2000), Vanessa secured the NAACP Image Award for Outstanding Actress in a Drama Series.

Vanessa is also a talented writer who has written a collection of poetry and prose titled Shine. Her poems and essays have also appeared in Essence Magazine.

As filmmaker, Vanessa wrote, directed, and produced the short film, Dense (2004), which aired on Showtime Television and is a favorite among film festival-goers.

As a singer/songwriter, Vanessa performed her original melodies in the films Dense (2004) and the award-winning short Driving Fish (2002). She recently performed “The Vagina Monologues” along with Star Jones and Sherri Shepherd (from The View (1997)) in Washington D.C. and Los Angeles, “Harlot Poetry by Vanessa Williams” at Artpeace Gallery in Burbank, California and “Stories in Song: an evening with Vanessa Williams” at the Temple Bar in Santa Monica, CA.

All Star Summer Press Tour

The first time I saw Bruklin Harris was in the film Juice(1992) with Tupac Shakur.  I always thought she was beautiful and should’ve been a bigger star. Bruklin Harris was born in Brooklyn, New York. Her real name is Idina. She was born on September 20th and began acting in films in 1992. She’s been in films like Dangerous Minds(1995)Girls Town(1996) and A Map of the World(1999). She co-starred in the controversial film “Zebrahead” as the character Nadine. She is well-known for her excellent characterizations and distinctive features. Her name is a unique phonic play on the city of her birth.
