Roxy is the gorgeous, sassy and street-smart member of this troupe of grim reapers. She has no problem telling it like it is.
Jasmine Guy began her career as a dancer for the Alvin Ailey American Dance Center. She moved to acting and television with her star-making role as snooty Southern belle Whitley Gilbert in "The Cosby Show" spin-off "A Different World." She won six consecutive NAACP Image Awards for her portrayal of Whitley, directing and writing for the series as well.
Her other television credits include "Melrose Place," "NYPD Blue," "Touched by an Angel," "The Fresh Prince of Bel Air," "Living Single" and "Any Day Now." She also starred in the telefilms "Stompin' at the Savoy," Alex Haley's "Queen," "The Boy Who Painted Christ Black," and SHOWTIME's ANNE RICE'S THE FEAST OF ALL SAINTS.
Guy's first feature film, Spike Lee's "School Daze," led to many movie opportunities, including "Harlem Nights," "Diamond Men," "Guinevere" and "Kla$h." On stage, she played the role of Velma Kelly in the hit Broadway revival of "Chicago" and appeared in the Broadway productions of "Leader of the Pack" and "The Wiz." Off-Broadway, she charmed audiences in the '60s revue of "Beehive," and toured Europe in a sizzling production of "Bubbling Brown Sugar."
Guy will return to Broadway this fall, appearing opposite Robert Sean Leonard in the Manhattan Theater Club's production of "The Violet Hour." She is also currently working on a book, "Evolution of a Revolutionary; Conversations with Afeni Shakur," which will be published by Atria, a division of Simon and Schuster, and released in February 2004.
