Selected Filmography

Tropes in her works:

  • But Not Too Black: Though she identifies as black, as revealed in an interview for The Unborn, she has a colorful ancestry (including some Jewish and Puerto Rican roots and one Native American grandfather) that technically makes her only half black.
  • The Cutie: Her early roles, fortunately her characters are much more diverse now.
  • Ensemble Dark Horse: Her role as "Nina" on Cousin Skeeter.
  • Former Child Star: Averted. Her career has gotten better since her childhood, although not to the expected levels it's still going strong.
  • Ms. Fanservice: Every single character she's ever played, barring her minor role in Friday, which was released when she was 13, and SHAZAM!, where despite looking like she usually does, her character is a little girl in an adult's body.
  • Sassy Black Woman: In real life. Most of her TV and movie roles has actually NOT been this. As of late she has been playing this more often.
  • Star-Making Role: Her best well known movie role would probably be considered 2007's Stomp The Yard, but the role that got her wide spread notoriety was her appearance in 50 Cent's 21 Questions music video.
  • Token Minority: Most of her work is in black cinema, but when it's not she'll almost always be this.
    • In her new TV drama Deception, it's a bit of a subversion since while she's the only minority character she's also the main character.
