Twitter:@fameciaw Hometown: Dawson, Ga. Representation: Ingrid French Management Credits: “If I Were a Belle” (film); “21” (theater) Greatest strength: The journey I’ve been on to get here. There is a lot feeding me, having lost both parents to cancer, served in the United States Army, and rising from the ashes of many broken hearts. I use this pain, laughter, joy, and put it into my work. Favorite actor: Angela Bassett. Not only is she beautiful and talented, but she is so believable in every role she plays.
