Creator: Kyla Pratt
Kyla Alissa Pratt (born September 16, 1986) is an African American actress and singer. Once considered one of Hollywood's best upcoming young actresses, she seems to have run into the glass ceiling that plagues many black actresses, and has been reduced to Direct-to-DVD movies. It remains to be seen if she can overcome it.

Selected Filmography


  • Dawson Casting: Due to her youthful looks she's often cast a a teenager, and will most likely play teen roles for a while.
  • Hide Your Pregnancy: She recently revealed that she has a ONE year old child, meaning that she hid the fact that she had been pregnant for nearly TWO YEARS!
  • Ms. Fanservice: She began her career portraying tomboys, but as she's gotten older her characters have become this. Her Cleavage Window is the only thing that made the post-Eddie Murphy Dr. Dolittle movies even some what watchable.
  • Sassy Black Woman: For most of her career she was a Sassy Black Kid.
  • Star-Making Role: Her role as Breana on One On One made her popular with horny teenage boys, and her role as Penny Proud made her into a child star.
  • Token Minority: Unfortunately she is often delegated to this role, despite being immensely talented.
