She comes to millions of screens weekly on one of network television’s most binge-able crime dramas, FX’s SNOWFALL, as one of its most tortured and nuanced characters ‘Wanda Bell’. Prior to that, she recurred as “Nadine” in FX’s ATLANTA as well as in Comedy Central’s THE DETROITERS as “Lois.” She was cast as a series regular in the ABC pilot THE TRUSTEE, where she played the role of “Delana”.
